The Worst Political Slogan Ever

I do believe that this slogan shows that after 13 years of Labour’s famous “Education, education, education” scheme, that it did actually fail in spectacular fashion. All of those unpaid interns (aged about 21) hoping to get their CV’s bolstered ready to become SPAD’s, are most likely to have come up with this unpunctuated slogan, have little if any, idea about the use of punctuation.

Cameron’s Referendum Script

wheelsofpoliticalsteel

Over the past few weeks I have watched and listened very carefully to the words of David Cameron, Manuel Barrosso and a plethora of Pro EU commentators.

It appears from listening to the real syntax of David Cameron’s statements about the 2017 In/out Referendum Promise is a mere advertising puff (as we say in the legal world). Sadly this is a promise that will ONLY happen IF the following all happen in the next 3 years;

1). IF the Tories win a Majority in 2015
2). IF there can be renegotiation with the EU
3). IF the renegotiation brings about changes to our membership
4). IF the renegotiations bring about Treaty changes
5). IF the renegotiations give more power to the EU

Then and Only then will Cameron and Co give the British People a chance of actually having a say about our country.

This is a conditional promise and…

Letter To DWP Ministers

wheelsofpoliticalsteel

Dear Sir/Madam

Please would you clarify a point for me and countless others regarding successful appeals.

Many people make their appeal as per the rules and time limits. Many of these claims are made by people who are initially assessed as being in the Work Related Activity Group.

The appeals can take a very long time. In my personal situation I had the assessment in March 2012, I was put into the WRAG on Contribution Based ESA as I have worked until I became to sick to continue with my career in Law. My first appeal to the decision maker was unsuccessful so I did as advised by my Personal Adviser and made an appeal to the HMCS Tribunal. The appeal was lodged and I waited for a response.

During the time between the the tribunal service receiving my appeal I kept them updated as to my continuing deterioration. I…

Twitter Spats

wheelsofpoliticalsteel

Further to a rather public twitter spat today. I thought for clarity that I should publish the e-mails sent between John Pring of the Disability News Service & myself. I do have an e-mail sent by a senior member of the party also but will not publish that as they haven’t been party to the events of today.

I was asked, as you can see from below, by John Pring to commit to a 10 point disabled persons manifesto to be adopted but UKIP and promoted by the party in the EU. Please note that he states the 10 point plan is one put together from two Disabled Persons Groups from Europe. Not anywhere was I officially told that one or both of the groups are funded by EU money.

I stated and I still do that 3 of the 10 (numbers 7, 9, & 10) items i could on…

The Don’t Care System coming to a town near you

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/elderhealth/10882025/Fine-print-of-care-rules-could-screen-out-frail-elderly-and-disabled-charities-warn.html

I have started the blog with a link because I have been notified of the contents within which will affect the lives of many people with disabilities, older people with degenerative illnesses & basically anyone who needs a little bit of help to live independently.

What is it that the Government don’t like about the ill, the frail, the elderly, people with disabilities because over the past 4 years they have systematically changed things to ensure that the most vulnerable in our supposed caring society are penalised for all societies ill.

I’m appalled at the way these new regulations can be interpreted and that is the real problem. Each person in charge of the Adult Services & Community Support all over the country can interpret things to suit their ever decreasing budgets. Councillors award the budget to the departments & then they “dole” it out to those who most…

Young Carers – The Invisible Care Givers

wheelsofpoliticalsteel

Young carers carry a heavy burden which many may not even be aware of especially teachers & other health professionals. This is because they and their parents unusually worry that the Social Services will break up the family.

Many youngsters care for their disabled/chronically sick parents in many ways.
They often have to care not only for the parent but also for younger siblings. There is a lot of work that goes into running a home and many school age children are running homes, caring for their family and still trying to keep up with school work

The strain this can cause to the young carer isn’t always evident. It can cause other problems for them especially with regard to their education. Many young carers miss school to take a family member to the doctors, hospital appointments, to collect medicines and a lot of the time it is to ensure…
