I have been horrified by the language, the misuse of information and the scapegoating of disabled people in our country.
They say we are not 'sustainable'; imply we caused the economic crash.
They speak of us sharing the burden of cuts, as if we are not already affected more than many by the other cuts.
They tell of the 'scoungers', with big headlines, ignoring the fact that we have the lowest level of fraud of all benefits.
They talk of the 'deserving' sick, excluding people who need help regardless of how they got there.
They use a system discredited by its creator to 'prove' we are liars, putting us through misery and fear of poverty.
They misuse the data from that system to 'show' that we claim when we are not sick.
They state we don't contribute, yet many of us work or have worked.
They encourage hate crime against us.
Apparently the Big Society doesn't include us?
