The Conservative Disability Group Website is rather interesting just now as this message is on display:
This website is temporarily closed owing to Disability Cuts.
The domain name will be transferred when the group secure new hosting.
The owner of the hosting package Graeme Ellis has resigned over disability cuts from the group and will no longer develop or host this site
It is feared that these two prominent Tories suffer from a disabled compassion disorder!
There are many figures being bandied about but what is most disturbing is that this has become a sustained Tory attack on the principle enshrined in the Welfare State compact with the British people, that the disabled would be given assistance enabling them to have a standard of life as near as possible to that enjoyed by the able-bodied.Gains in social justice are being thrown away as this government pursues its underlying aim .......... to shrink the state and replace it with the chaos of market driven services.Unfortunately for the disabled they are not best suited to thrive in the society that is emerging. It is too easy to draw parallels with the scapegoating of disadvantaged groups in pre-war Europe ........... we are nowhere near that horror .......... but the hardship experienced by those less able to adapt to this Tory philosophy is none the less shocking.
Overall, the Government's coffers are set to be boosted by nearly £4.2 billion ............. due to a combination of tax increases and spending cuts.Mr McDonnell said: "One-third of cuts will fall on people with disabilities - I find that morally reprehensible".
