The petition calling on the Conservative Government to reverse its decision to inflict a £30-per-week cut on people claiming Employment and Support Allowance in the Work-Related Activity Group has passed 100,000 signatures in less than a week.

At the time of writing, more than 103,000 have signed. This means Parliament must consider a debate on the subject.

In the meantime, the petition has another 25 weeks in which to gain as many more signatures as possible, to demonstrate the depth of public disgust with the Tory decision to take cash away from those who are most in need and funnel it to the filthy rich.

Please, if you haven’t signed it – do. And if you have – ask someone else to.

    This Government really needs to look at this again now that over !00,000 have signed this can no longer be ignored!! there are also reports of MP’s that have been made to resign from their charities that they held because they had voted for these cuts.
