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.

200,000 disabled face cuts in their benefits as rejected claims figures rise

200,000 disabled face cuts in their benefits as rejected claims figures rise | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it

Since PIP launched, 161,000 people have had the original decision overturned at mandatory reconsideration or at appeal, according to DWP reports.
britishroses's insight:
Because they are bullies and find it easy to pick on our most vulnerable and they don't have the balls to crack down on tax avoiding/evading multimillionaires or to increase tax on those earning imo £150,000 a year or more! They instead give our money to countries like China and North Korea and plunge our disabled and chronically sick into even more poverty, reducing and or removing their benefits that are a life line to them, it's sickening!

How the NHS is being dismantled in 10 easy steps

How the NHS is being dismantled in 10 easy steps | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
Nobody's told you, but the government’s Health and Social Care Act has legally abolished the NHS. On the surface, it appears that nothing has changed. You can still see your GP or go to hospital and receive care free at the point of delivery. But behind the scenes, something else is going on: the NHS is being privatised. As a GP in Tower Hamlets, I want to tell my patients what’s really going on. Over the last 30 years, successive governments have dismantled our national health service – and here’s how they did it.
