Only Seven more days of Tory Lies and Promises? YOU CHOOSE

We are at last in the final week before the GE2017 and we finally learn that the Tories via Penby Mordaunt  Disability Minister, believe that there is “no group in society that is so discriminated against [as disabled people], whether it be the barriers of the environment, of attitudes, or the failings of the state”. Finally an admittance that as a community disabled people experience the largest number of hurdles, just to survive.

But before celebrating lets put this into context, Mordaunt made this statement at at a disability hustings event, where she falsely claimed “a legislative commitment to dismantle the work capability assessment” (WCA) is in the manifeso; it isn’t.

Further Mordaunt in a written response to questions submitted by disability united this week “the decision about whether to institutionalise somebody against their will is rightly a matter for medical professionals, and decisions should be made on the grounds of individual safety and health“. She did go on to acknowledge no one who should not be in an institutional setting is” but failed to recognise the desire of the individual in deciding where they should live.

This in the same week as John Pring (DNS) reports “The UK is one of the worst-performing countries in Europe when it comes to implementing the UN disability convention, being joint 11th out of 16 European Countries. Prings article outlines the Zero Project, which carried out the research and explains how the ratings are reached

So in the last 7 days it appears business as usual from the Tories with regard to disability, LIE, keep forcing sick and disabled people through the unjust and harrowing regime of WCAs,  without regard  or respect for the Rights and welfare of the individuals.  I urge you to remember this next Thursday.
