I have C.O.P.D my lungs are the age of 72 year old and i am only 42 waiting for my appeal been told 9-12 months and even if you win your appeal you don't get back what you have lost this has to stop and the government has to see there is alot of people who are sick and cant work but they dont care and i don't think it would matter what government got in there all the same just in different ways but i do agree with all of you.

problem is that we have people incharge of the country who are neither fish nor fowl in political terms, no one voted for the botch version of a coalition we now have, and we have thwe worst of all words as they jockey for position for the next election, and steal each others clothes as middle grounder.
I NEVER WAS A LABOUR VOTER, but get a terrible feeling that the only way we shall survive as a coherent nationis to actually renationalise th ecommanding heighrsof the economy supply side...

I dislike the Tories now, but have absolutely no faith in Labour; they sold off all our gold, got rid of the 10p tax band for people on low incomes, and raised it to the normal level, and forced us to close our childrens care homes, so now all those children in Catholic homes who were difficult to place are now now being rehomed in the same numbers as they used to be. Also, the Lib Dems are opportunistic! None of them deserve my vote

I agree, the DLA must be kept. But It wouldn't matter what Government was in, they would all do it. Scotland will just sit back and take it , as usual. So basically they will keep dictating & robbing us, they will take everything, including our dignity. It's disgusting.

Disability allowance has been abused for so long by so many for years so it should be stopped with immediate effect + save the honest tax payers being bled dry. Get off the drugs, get off the booze + go and do a proper days works for your money u lazy sponging ne-do-wells!

Do you really believe you know better about the situation than the people who actually help these wounded folk assemble what they can of a normal life. How do you come to such a conclusion when many are born with severe disabilities and others have to face losing abilities we all take for granted. Do you really think it fair those with genuine needs should suffer because of the tiny percentage who abuse the system. It is an extremely hard benefit to get on, organizations that help disabled...

Do you really believe you know better about the situation than the people who actually help these wounded folk assemble what they can of a normal life. How do you come to such a conclusion when many are born with severe disabilities and others have to face losing abilities we all take for granted. Do you really think it fair those with genuine needs should suffer because of the tiny percentage who abuse the system. It is an extremely hard benefit to get on, organizations that help disabled folk say you have to be dead to get on it. It has now worsened further as nowadays people weeks from cancer death are deemed fit for work. So by all means have a go at those who are actually stealing you tax money, the bankers who've destroyed our financial stability and got paid Millions in bonuses for it by the banks who claimed bailouts from your tax money. One day you will become disabled to learn compassion as that seems to be your disability.

The government is a WEAK AND PATHETIC bunch of greedy, calous and pocket lining thieves! WHO ARE HITTING THE 'soft touch and vulnerable' people! But line the pockets of solicitors, with millions of taxpayers money, to represent the likes of choudry and his savage butchers. To be 'safe abd free' on our streets! This has to STOP and STOP NOW!

To be fair he does know what handicaps are, his own son was disabled ! but if greedy people who had found another easy way to leech off this country instead of working we wouldnt be in this mess !! and people who really need DLA would be still getting it. Its the same old political move hit the most vunerable people first ,its easy money and not too much work involved.Anyone who has any problems who are entitled to DLA keep appealing and signing petitions and supporting others or get someone...

If 50,256 have taken the pledge, how come there are only 36,571 signatures? Something wrong with the maths there in that around 18000 people must have taken the pledge but not signed the petition themselves.

Might have been easier if they just put out the link to sign the petition rather than getting people to pledge to get their friend etc, when I looked at it it had the URL to sign but a it didn`t actually link to it, I put it in the browser, many may not think of that.

Also pledging is like getting people to pledge money, they may make the pledge but how many actually donate?

Sue White

Very valid point Mary - people don't want to go looking for links - they need them made obvious - it just amazes me that the "pledge" number is rises considerably faster than the signatures

Since my last post an hour ago, nearly 300 people have "taken the pkedge" yet just 70 people have signed the petition
