Petition: Amend PIP rules so that mentally disabled adults can get a Blue parking Badge

Petition: Amend PIP rules so that mentally disabled adults can get a Blue parking Badge | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
Currently rules on personal independence payments mean that mobility points, which allow people to access a Blue Badge for disabled parking, are allocated on a physical capacity to walk only not mental impairment.
This is demonstrably unrealistic & impacts both people with disabilities and carers.

britishroses's insight:
We need to make a clean break and get on with it! The EU has had more than enough of our money and hold more than enough of our assets, they clearly are not interested in a deal they want it their way or no way, well they can get knotted! Get Out Now!

Tory legal aid cuts are locking hundreds of thousands of people out of justice

Tory legal aid cuts are locking hundreds of thousands of people out of justice | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it

Domestic violence victims are among those to suffer after the number of firms offering legal aid fell by 20% in the last five years
britishroses's insight:
That's been their intention from the start, they removed legal aid then pushed through their welfare reform bill and those most in need no longer had the ability to fight them legally. There's nothing equal about our society, not even close, not only is our infrastructure archaic, how we treat one another in the country is barbaric. The UN has recently demanded an annual UK progress report on correcting ‘grave and systematic violations’ against disabled people, thousands have died and still no cumulative impact assessment, why well they know what it would show, that's why. What I don't understand is why no media outlet has done some investigative reporting and looked into the deaths of our most vulnerable because of these cuts!
