Independant Researcher Mo Stewart today challenged the Chief Medical Officer at the DWP Prof Dame Sally Davies in a letter at the research that she and many others have done over many years, regarding the preventable harm committed by the state on disabled people in the UK.
The DWP are found wanting on many levels as the truth is becoming more transparent to many people who circumstances means they need state support, under the falsehood of Austerity. After years of welfare reforms and the terrible consequences of these policies in the media cannot be hidden any longer,although the press have colluded in this failing to report such cases. Disabled people have taken to direct action and doing research which has been presented to the UN who were scathing of the Government reforms and treatment of disabled people In UK, stating ‘Grave and Systemic Violations of disabled people in the UK’.
Now Universal Credit the flagship policy by Iain Duncan Smith is causing widespread criticism and hardship has hardly been out the headlines due to it endemic failures of administration which is cumbersome to say the least, let alone very costly to the public purse and the savings forecast at its launch will be unlikely to emerge . The Government’s cavalier attitude ‘carrying on regardless’ attitude is a failure of the state to protect the very people they said would be protected and who thus far have born the brunt of savage cuts to welfare spending than any other group in society so far.
