Tracey Mills.

Stealing vital transport from the terminally-ill – that’s “compassionate Conservatism” for you in this day and age.

Tories once claimed that they would not penalise the terminally-ill. Clearly that has changed and they don’t care who they persecute.

Perhaps they are not saving enough benefit money by forcing the genuinely sick and disabled onto Universal Credit?

Perhaps – and this is more likely – they simply get a kick out of watching those near death struggle to live for just a few more days.

The people facing this persecution may be sick, but the Tory government is sickening.

A woman with terminal cancer says she was forced to walk to an emergency doctor’s appointment on crutches – after she was deemed too healthy for a mobility car.

Tracey Mills, 53, from Mossley, Greater Manchester, was previously granted a vehicle through Disability Living Allowance (DLA) after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour several years ago.

But when a new assessment was carried out after the government’s new Personal Independence Payment (PIP) came into force, Tracey’s disability benefits were reduced.

She was found to be too fit to qualify for a car, so the automatic Ford Focus she relied on to get around was taken away.
