Emma Hardy makes excellent points – but she’s a Labour MP and the Tories aren’t interested in changing the criteria for Personal Independence Payment.

Tories hate disabled people. They’re pretty much like the Nazis in 1930s Germany in that respect, as This Site has mentioned many times in the past.

Of course, there’s always a way to change the situation.

The UK had a chance to do that on December 12 – and 14 million people chose not to.

They decided that the torture – to death, in many cases – of disabled people was a price worth paying, in order to achieve a UK with a much worse-performing economy that is a vassal state to the USA (if Boris Johnson gets his way), rife with racism and right-wing thuggery.

And they’re dragging the rest of us down with them.

Hull West and Hessle MP Emma Hardy has called for an overhaul of the way benefits assessments are carried out for disabled people.

She spoke out after new government figures showed nearly half of people previously claiming Disability Living Allowance (DLA) lost out when they were re-assessed under the replacement Personal Independent Payment (PIP) regime.

In Ms Hardy’s Hull West and Hessle constituency, 1,140 out of 2,173 people previously receiving DLA who were reassessed for PIP saw their support either decreased or stopped altogether.

In the Yorkshire and Humber region as a whole, 63,033 people out of the 132,421 reassessed saw their level of support shrink or stop, representing 48 per cent of all those assessed.
