The cuts disabled people are facing just grow and grow.
I've already outlined many on this site here http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.com/2010/12/sickness-and-disability-cuts.html
This cut, however, really takes some believing :
Phasing out the Independent Living Fund just makes no sense at all. I fail to see how this could save any government any money as it only keeps disabled people out of state care to live at much lower cost in their own homes.
If we put together all of the cuts sick and disabled people face, we are literally stripping away all of the support we thought was only decent and right in a civilised society. The effect all of these attacks combined on "the most vulnerable in our society" can surely be nothing short of disastrous? Are we really prepared to live in a society that does almost nothing to support sick and disabled people?
I know there are many battles to fight at the moment, but if you have the strength and health to fight your own, I beg you to lend a little of it to your sick or disabled fellow human beings. They often have the weakest voice and the least ability to fight.
That we have a government who chooses this particular group to take the most pain makes me utterly ashamed.
I don't want to live in a world like this :
