Please join this newly created facebook group to show your opposition to the ConDem government's attacks on Disability Living Allowance
"We, the undersigned, oppose the coalition government's attack on Disability Living Allowance (DLA).
We object to the announcement that the entire DLA caseload will be reviewed via new medical tests in 2013, leading some members of the public to believe that stringent assessment measures are not already in place. How, exactly, will reviewing every existing claim help save taxpayers' money?
We object to the coalition making misleading, spiteful references to DLA, including wrongly describing it as an out-of-work benefit in the State of the Nation report, which complains about the "persistence" of disabled people who, um, are still disabled a few years later.
We object to the vicious, savage attacks being meted out on disabled people via the tabloid press, egged on by the new government.
And we object to George Osborne's objective of reducing the number of claimants by 20% despite the fact that the DLA fraud rate is 0.5% - lower than for any other benefit. You're the chancellor, George, you can count... can't you?"
