Disabled people to march in London against cuts to benefits and services
It's a pity the usual suspects are digging in and ramping up the hyperbole and hysterics all the way to 11. While no-one wants to see the genuinely disabled affected, the tone of this campaign is becoming very off putting.
The protest wasn't organised by disabled people; it was organised by charities with links to the TUC, which has links to the Labour Party.Disabled people trust the charities they use so much, that if they're told they're going to lose their benefits - they'll believe it. To get disabled people to protest, charities have taken advantage of this, by deliberately frightening them online, in newsletters and verbaly with scaremongering propaganda.
Disabled in the head?
Ross, you've got this one scheduled in OoL but it's got no title atm- do you want me to put this title in?
Oh, I'd decided not to put there after all. Wasn't sure of the reaction. Must learn how to delete those posts.
I wouldn't worry about the reaction - it's a good post :)
It's awful, but yes, I did think that. On the BBC coverage, the reporter interviewed a blind lady. The reporter told us (the viewer) as introduction that this poor lady had seen big cuts to her disability benefits.Well, no she hadn't, actually.
Did they march, or stagger ? Or shuffle ?
They staggered and shuffled.Which was unfortunate as passersby thought it was a zombie attack and terrible things happened in the ensuing panic.
Right, blogger swallowed my hilariously witty real life sob story from the BBC about a blind woman who, and I quote verbatim here, "had seen her benefits reduced".Well, exactly not.
