People claiming sickness and disability benefits have been famously victimised by Conservative and Conservative-led governments since 2010. Thousands have died as a result of this treatment.

This Site welcomes reports that the vast majority of the 13 million people with disabilities in the UK are planning to vote – and This Writer hopes those votes are used to support the only viable alternative to the Conservative Party – Labour.

But there are many other people who have been victimised by the Tories – all of them in groups that are statistically less likely to register to vote, let alone use it: young people, those on benefits, and those hit by the Bedroom Tax. The Tories are planning to hit pensioners next, even though, as a group, they are more likely to vote Conservative.

Scope, the charity for disabled people, tweeted an interesting number when the general election was announced. There are, it said, 13 million disabled people in Britain. Some 89 per cent have said they will vote.

The reason that number is worth paying attention to is that if the 89 per cent are true to their word, and if they use their franchise to hold the Government to account for its brutal treatment of disabled people, it might just spell trouble for Theresa May’s dreams of a three-figure majority.
