From Terror Stricken to Rage – Thanks Theresa May

Imagine for one moment you have been subjected to the most draconian cuts in income, been subject to the most vile rhetoric from those responsible for supporting you and withstood being abused when you leave your home. Further more you have witnessed thousands of yours peers die as a result of these experiences; if you can do this you have a small idea of what my life, along with 13 million or more others disabled people in Tory Britain. And this is a mere snapshot of the ever growing pressures many of us find ourselves going through.

Much of these burdens began whilst a certain Iain Duncan Smith, with his loyal sidekick Esther McVey was in charge of the Dept for Work & Pensions; so imagine Awaking to the fact is BACK caused immediate Panic Attack.

An hour later the terror has settled and I’m now Furious and Disgusted, quite simply this  promotion for #McVile is the Biggest F”*K You @theresa_may could give people; and therefore I urge everyone to use their fear to galvanise them into ensuring 2018 sees the back of the Tories, because #TogetherWeCAN

There is a petition on 38 degrees –  you hopefully will support

Never underestimate the stupidity of social landlords!

Never underestimate the stupidity of social landlords!

This essential reading for all  #SocialHousing #Tenant is another  MUST from Joe Haleswood; the greed of so called SocialHousing Landlords is AIDING the ever growing number of #Homeless.

Don’ accept this? –

Landlords in social housing are blind. Look at all these homeless people we must build build build they say! Yet what they build is not affordable so it is like saying look at all these poor people walking – Let’s build them gold-plated Ferrari’s!!”

 

Never underestimate the stupidity of social landlords!

Forget Benefit Cards,Welcome to Gov Coin

From Gail Ward @blueannoyed MORE EVIDENCE that Benefit Recipients will NOT Get MONEY but a piece of plastic with only ALLOWED Spending.
We’re Not Worthy?!

blueannoyed

Well my last blog on welfare cards failed to hit the spot because people do not believe the government would do this well WAKE UP THEY WILL!

If we allow this Government to mistreat  us this way then frankly we deserve what we get, if we can be bothered to sign a petition which affects our Human Rights while we still have them! Once Brexit is done you will have a bill of rights instead where your gov can abuse you at its will. Claiming Social Security when times are tough is not a crime, it was designed to offer a helping hand to those who could contribute and support those who could not due to disability or other reasons. If we fail to act to put a stop to this Government stepping across the line then as a society we have failed and sunk to new depths where humanity would…

My Daughter

When you’re down and feeling blue

focussed on all you can’t do. Stop.

Remember this day is one of many times YOU,

Saved my life.

Without you this Earth would have lost Two

Special and Unique people. So

the next time the dark slithers in,

Please Think of your value to Me.

Let this give hope and maybe lift

the Black to Grey . And memories of

your talents, beauty and gifts

You Alone Hold.

 

 

 

EXCLUSIVE #Disability Discrimination means Son is removed from Home?

The following true tale is the introduction into what will be a series of posts regarding a seeming miscarriage of justice and potential disability discrimination; names have been changed to protect the identities of these involved. The purpose of this post is to help the family concerned achieve real justice; please share as widely as possible.

Alison is a single parent of14 year old Adam, both live with various diagnosed and pending diagnosis health disorders including Fibromyalgia and Elhers Danos; Alison is also Autistic and symptoms suggest Adam is as well.

Due to Adams health, he found it difficult to cope with school from the beginning and despite special educational needs intervention, including one to one lessons he struggled experiencing bullying which resulted in him developing depression. These experiences became worse during Adams transition from junior to senior school, so much so that in 2015, Alison began to home educate him. Utilising her qualifications in Advanced Sports Therapy, Holistic Therapies and counselling, Alison along with other professional devised and delivered a programme of education with a wide variety of skills and healthy activities. This proved very successful wih two reviews from the LEA and feedback from the young carers project Adam attended, resulting in him showing a general improvement in mental capacity, attitude and general happiness.

However despite the improvements in Adams education and development the local social services were unhappy and persuaded Alison to undertake a psychological assessment. This transpired to be 4 and ½ hours of Rorschach testing and a further 3 hours of probing of her medical history, during which time Alison without an advocate, perhaps understandably became extremely agitated. The findings of this assessment, which interestingly Alison’s own GP deemed totally unnecessary, was Alison being regarded as having Somatic Syndrome Disorder and thus influencing Adam into thinking he has medical conditions.  The findings despite an array of medical, educational and other evidence to the contrary, was then used by social services to go to court, the outcome being Alison was found to be unable to care for her son and Adam was removed from home and taken into care.

The court when considering Adams future, refused to consider the historical  and educational evidence of Adams physical and psychological health and relied entirely upon Alisons psychological assessment. The miscarriage of justice transpired therein as it appears that the psychological assessor determined: Alisons willingness and ability to research the most appropriate consultants for her sons health, indicates she is only willing to work with selected professionals; further it seems Alisons knowledge that her personal diagnoses of autism and elher danos both have a genetic pre-disposition to health issues, was considered by the assessor as a desire to transpose these onto Adam.

Further the court found that Adam should be taken into care permanently and that contact with his mother would only be regulated once Alison shows no further concern for the health of her son.

The second post will follow soon.
