A Labour government would break with the shameful legacy of the previous regime, which demonised disabled people in receipt of benefits. This is a disability benefits protest on Westminster bridge in September [Image: Nick Ansell/PA].

Has your social media feed been full of anti-Labour attacks saying the party will be soft on benefit claimants, if elected?

“If Labour get in, they’ll give £35k to benefit claimants” – that kind of thing?

If so, I think you should ask the people posting this drivel a few relevant questions:

Are these the same people who attacked Labour for introducing Employment and Support Allowance?

Are they the same people who attacked Labour for introducing the Work Capability Assessment?

Are they the same people who falsely accused Labour of piloting the Bedroom Tax?

Labour has promised to ditch the WCA and the Bedroom Tax in its current manifesto, and ESA would get a serious overhaul – but they don’t talk about that, do they?

It’s time to call out the naysayers on their nonsense.

So vote Labour on June 8 – for a fair benefit system.
