It’s funny that there are so many successful appeals against disability assessments – it’s as if there is something wrong with the system

It’s funny that there are so many successful appeals against disability assessments – it’s as if there is something wrong with the system | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
It’s rapidly becoming clear that Prime Minister Theresa May’s bold pledge to create a Britain that works for everyone should have an asterisk attached to facilitate the addition of “except for those pesky people with disabilities, can’t we pack them off somewhere else?” In recent days the Government’s plan to cut people with serious mental health conditions out of eligibility for personal independent payments has justifiably come under sustained fire.

WATCH: President Donald Trump And Chancellor Angela Merkel Meet with German Business Leaders at White House President Trump Leads a Roundtable Discussio
britishroses's insight:
There's NO excuse for ignorance, Trump just shown his true colours in his behaviour and lack of to Merkel. Though I do agree with 'some' of what he says, he clearly isn't fit to be President and is quickly making the US look like a joke; he needs to learn to keep his mouth shut and fingers off of twitter unless he has cleared what he wants to say. No one tapped his phones, he said that to distract from the fact he and his team are still being looked at for connections to Russia, then when he couldn't provide the proof turned to blaming the GCHQ, who quickly I may add made clear that they had done no such thing; maybe it was Russia keeping an eye on him making sure he was doing as he'd been told - ridiculous! He's a conman and sadly he's conned the American people!
