It is the government's job to punish the sick, the old and the needy - they are Conservatives - which means that this is what they are sponsored and lobbied to do. I will happily sign the petition, but not much is going to change until we all finally revolt against seeing society run as a balance sheet set out by the greediest people on the planet.

My brother relies on DLA without which he'd be totally housebound. This is an out and out attack on the sick and disabled. It has nothing to do with 'saving' money or tackling fraud.

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.

So I just remembered a friend who worked there long ago and apparently they call on her from time to time.

This has me feeling very sad! :(

I understand what you are saying, there is many many people that have invisible disabilities, My father has young onset parkinsons disease (now in the advance stages). I remember one time he fell over and an old women hit and poked him with her walking stick telling him to get up and saying you drunken idiot. The fact is many people judge things they can not see. It hurts to see people suffer in such a way, just because people can't see it does not mean its not there.

I know a number of seriously/chronically il people who have been told they are fit for work - one for example because he coud get to the interview by Bus! Another because he could shave! How can these people with NO medical knowledge assess a person's capability of working? I am bedbound, but am I to be told that I am fit to work just because I can use my netbook? That is yet another reason I have heard used! We are going to be made to beg on the streets, like Victorian times & before, if we do not make our opinions known.
