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 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 that we all rely on , GAS, ELECTRICITY, ALL FORMS OF FUEL, WATER, TELECOMMS, RAIL TRAVEL, AND SUCHLIKE, AND RETURN TO PRICE FIXING , I never though I would say this, but we were robbed by the great sell offs in the thatcher years, itis time to correct the imbalance in favour of all of us, not just financial thieves posing as resectable business, anbd the same goes for a proper benefit system, forthose who are rn defineably british, and have paid in for at least 20 years, ie, for health and benbefit tourists, no pay, no get, lets reclaim sanity as most of us would seeit.

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.

Yes Cameron and his scum coalition must go. Notwithstanding, these are the cut that labour was going to do had they not lost power. It is time that you all pulled your heads out of your ass'oles and started running our country, through the MP that you are electing. But then we no longer have any working class people in the labour movement, now'days; that's why its gone tits up!

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...

some people on here make me mad with their comments about money scroungers on benefits. There is only 5% of people on benefits that shouldn't be claiming it, does that give this government the right to affect the other 95%? As for money scroungers look no further than The Government and mp's that claim £400 a week food allowance while children in this country are starving as well as their 2nd homes and horse paddocks etc etc etc...

The Sun newspaper who started this hate campaign against people on benefits is a tax dodger himself (Rupert Murdoch), David Cameron's millionaire father has been tax dodging all his working life, Cameron himself claimed DLA for his son when he obviously didn't need the money. They are doing this hate campaign to take the heat of themselves and too many gullible people have fallen for their lies. come April I hope to God those people who call people scroungers choke on their words when they themselves will be effected by these cuts and also You never know what is around the corner your shop, company could close or you might have an injury or illness that leaves you disabled. We never know so think before you call anyone else and look higher up the field for your money scroungers.

Hi Wendi, Like and fully agree with all your comments, and replies to a few idiots who arnt up to speed or blinded by Cameron and his pathetic government. I escaped to Scotland 32 yrs.ago, and glad I did. Cant wait for Independence Day, and forsee many riots /demonstrations this summer coming in all the big cities in England, particularly the midlands and the poorer parts of the London area.

Thanks Steve, Just found out yesterday that the department I work for at my local council are having to make cuts and I'll find out in September whether or not I still have a job, i thought my job was pretty safe so it goes to show no one is safe under these idiots at the minute, and as I said earlier I hope to god they choke on their words, I've been on sickness benefit from an injury I had while working for another company which I'll add too that I paid every penny back so no idiot tory...

I barely survived on that benefit and found myself returning to work quicker than I should of. I can tell you it aint as comfortable as the papers make out to be on benefits infact there claims are totally inaccurate.

Hi Wendi, Expect you saw the Eastleigh election result. Definitely a kick in the butt for 'Dameron'. I imagine a lot of people in your part of the country will be voting for UKIP at the next election. Very much doubt the Tory pricks will get re-elected again. Hope you keep your job.

my daughter gets it she is totally reliant on other people and her family and if it was not for the help of the dla income she would not be able to attend day centre and afford her medication to keep her alive, if I had my way we should call a no confidence in the goverment after all it was us the BRITISH PUBLICthat put them in power and it is us the BRITISH PUBLIC who can get them out so those up their in their ivory towers on £100,000+, try living on £10.000 >15,000 a year with the price...

Phillip Wickett, I live on less then £10,000 each year, your well off pal! British is a word used for Immigrants, that come to our homeland to beg of our NHS and Tax system, that they have never paid into, English subjects, however, are not going around the country bombing and killing people! Paying into the NHS from the age of 14 and 15 years old!

Would be better if they stopped giving money to terrorists and the opposition in Syria and saved the DLA It is outrageous how much of UK taxpayers money is being poured into the Middle East with no checks and balances and much of it goes on corruption , supporting terror and buying arms

Reading this thread is truly heartbreaking The government is playing with people's lives, yet finding money for relatively unimportant projects and to bail out banks etc seems to be unaffected.

You really have an axe to grind Raymond, you judge others, make sweeping statements and even blame bombings on non-british people without a crumb of evidence. I bet you still believe the 9/11 attacks were islamists don't you? I bet you still believe the 7th of July bombings were Al Qaeda and not MI6 agents? Go and do some research 'pal' before you accuse those you have never met of bombing others. Building 7..............explain that one....'pal'
