Even the Daily Express has started highlighting government prejudice against people with disabilities

Campaigners have slammed the UK for its record on equality for disabled people [Image: Getty/PA].

Disability rights groups have submitted a “shadow report” to a United Nations committee, criticising the UK for breaking the promise it made when it signed up to its international Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2009.

Sue Bott, deputy chief executive of Disability Rights UK (DRUK) who led the report, said it drew on experiences of disabled people to show “the impediments that prevent so many fulfilling their potential and living full, independent lives”.

    The government aught to be brought to task about this. They created the atmosphere that now abides due to their scrounger rhetoric.

      They have been. The UN gave them a good telling off and a parliamentary team who check if the government gives value for money has given them 4 good telling offs because they claim to be saving money by starving the disabled but they have spent more paying ATOS to lie on assessment forms. They respond by saying they know what they are doing despite having no data and that their policies are good for disabled people. They insist that the huge increase in deaths has nothing to do with hounding disabled people relentlessly.. It’s good for them and gets them moving, even if they have no muscles or nerves the decision makers can wave their wands and say the magic words “I have decided you can walk 200 meters”
      So because they are omnipotent they can be held to task but they ignore it and do as they please. So what are you gona do about it?
