It's part of a general attack on the rights and benefits of the poor and working class which our 'posh boy' rulers have been longing to do for decades. In any case - what people forget is that DLA is NOT only an 'out of work' benefit. It enables many disabled people to actually work who otherwise would not have the mobility to otherwise do so. Removing it would mean that many disabled people would be unable to get to work in the first place.

Mum is totally disabled and is hoisted in and out of bed and needs toileting 24-7, dad disabled and is struggling with emphasaemia and heart disease and my severely epileptic 40+ sister llives at home with them (who would love to work but nobody will employ her). Parents (and sister where possible) have worked hard all thier lives and now as age has taken thier dignaty away so the government is taking away any comfort and the ability for them to make any decisions themselves. They do not want to be put into care homes and be split up and be 40+ miles away from the village they have lived in thier whole life but they will not be able to pay for the carers twice a day or the basic toileting equipment bedpans and pads (cost £850 so far this year). They are already worrying about how they will psy the heating bill for the coming winter. The Dr's wont visit (over 14 months now since mum has hers Dr) and she cannot get to the practise without a wheelchair taxi which costs of £30 each way. They have never diagnosed her ailing body since her fall over 12months ago when she broke her knee and they refuse to acknowledge her need to know what is happening - just keep sending pills out to the local pharmacy! The house needds adapting to cater for her wheelchair and she is trapped in the house as cannot get out without help. I am sure the govenment has designs on getting back a lot of elderly peoples properties that have been fairly bought and paid for by hard working people. Lets say if they do kill themselves over this I will know who is to blame.

Dear Mr Cameron, whilst I agree that times are hard and costs need to be saved but in the case of the vast majority of DLA claimants this is not a charitable hand out but a very necessary benefit to help the most vulnerable in our society to contribute and to attain a level of dignity despite their very real circumstances. It is not FAIR that the methods used by ATOS and it administration border on the cruel and misleading, please think again....surely their must be other areas in which we can save money! Oliver
