The time has come, the time is now... For too long governments have relied on the lack of unification between a population! How good and pleasant it would bee to see the unification of a people...!

Further benefit cuts would be impossible. Planning Law needs reforming, so let's not all look in one direction.

I hope to God this never happens, but, if George Osborne suffers a catastrophic road crash and then is left worrying about the future and if he will receive benefits? Would his view change then?

And then when his benefits are agreed, would he want the uncertainty of having them reviewed every now and again at a moments notice, maybe randomly stopped, altered? The uncertainty, insecurity, on top of the problems with being disabled.

Please, if I am to be given more or less benefits, can this be decided soon, and if so, can that decision be for a reasonable length of time before the next rumoured upheaval?

Daniel-Steven Jaqnerico, I'm saddened by your story and I know a little of how it can be. I'm on SSMI but deal with physical disability as well. So I can sympathize with the turmoils of the "system". I just wanted you to know you are being heard. And I'm sending blessings to you.

THE GOVERNMENT IS TAKING MONEY FROM TRULY DISABLED PEOPLE SO THEY CAN GIVE THE CASH TO ILLEGAL ALIENS, THAT'S WHY I SIGNED ON THIS EARLY SUNDAY MORNING, SO I COULD EXPRESS MY OUTRAGE UPON LEARNING THAT THE LEFT IN POWER ARE PUSHING WELFARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY ON ILLEGALS. I'VE NEVER HEARD OF SUCH BULLSHIT IN MY LIFE! AND WHEN I SIGNED ON, IRONICALLY, GERRY HAD POSTED THE STOP THE GOVERNMENT FROM TAKING BENEFITS FROM THE TRULY DISABLED PETITION. I DIDN'T WORK BACK TO BACK JOBS WHEN I WAS IN...

I DIDN'T WORK BACK TO BACK JOBS WHEN I WAS IN BETTER HEALTH SO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS COULD RECIEVE SOCIAL SECURITY, IT'S BASICALLY LIKE THE LEFT IS SAYING "F*** YOU TO LEGAL IMMIGRANTS, WHO WENT THROUGH OUR SYSTEM TO BECOME AMERICANS AND ALSO TO DISABLED AMERICANS WHO PAID INTO THE SYSTEM IN THE FIRST PLACE! IT HAS TO STOP, WE CAN'T AFFORD THESE POLICIES AND I FOR ONE, AM NOT GOING TO ALLOW THE LIBERALLS TO BANKRUPT OUR COUNTRY JUST SO THEY CAN EXPERIMENT ON THEIR SOCIAL RE-ENGINEERING POLICIES!

I know of a person who is really milking the system and nobody is doing anything about it. She is claiming benefits to pay to go college, council benefits, full invalidity benefit yet she can go and do coaching at the local judo club. Where's the justice?

Jenny alot of disabled are advised thru vocational rehab to go and take classes ,and also may do part time work or even volunteer work .We are not all dead just not able to work full time to support ourselves .I myself am Bipolar and a LPN and not able to work full time and diff shifts besides my other physical problems and stress issues I could not even get affordable health care so do not judge what you dont understand

I am fighting to get my ESA back, been unable to work due to a back problem for almost 5 years and am about to go to court for the second time to keep my benefit money. My discs have crumbld even more (MRI scan shows that), pain is just as bad as its always been and the thought of going through the court every 18/24 months is more depressing than the disability itself. Your made to feel like your begging and that your a fake, even when you know your not. The system is wrong and its very sad for those having no choice but to go through it :-(

there are those of use who appear able bodied but have an "invisible disability" such as Lupus or Rheumatoid Autoimmune or Multiple Sclerosis, etc. who are living with debilitating pain and motor dysfunction and yet we appear to be "normal" and able bodied but we are not. I don't think others should be judging folks and be determining who is truly disabled.

yeah, I got that even when my heart rate was 33 and I was near death. People mean well. And you know people go in for physicals and feel fine and find out they have stage 4 cancer - they look great until they start chemo and radiation - so how a person looks means nothing really as far as their health goes. It's like when people go to a viewing at the funeral home and talk how good the corpse looks - that's always baffled me.

I agree that benefits should be taken away from alcoholics & junkies, they got into it of their own free will as I did with ciggies, if they weren't given benefits they would have to give it up or get a job to feed it, not rely on our taxes! Give benefits to those in genuine need.

I have worked all my life payed my tax and national insurance but now have Arthritis in my hip's knee's lower back and neck, I am getting a new hip also a new knee and the other knee having a small op. If I fall on the floor I have to crawl to something to get up, But the goverment not helping me and they will not put me down as disabled, All the pain killer's don't really help as my life gone because my love of fishing getting to hard to do, sometime's I think I would be better of sleeping and not waking up.
