We need to do something about the proposed cuts to disability allowances and support. If we can fight to save badgers then surely we can fight to save disability cuts?
I’m not going to be as foolish as Neil Wallis and declare that petitions are competing but something has been playing on my mind along these lines. Pat Onions started a petition some time ago now asking the government to “Stop and review the cuts to benefits and services which are falling disproportionately on disabled people, their carers and families”. This petition which closes in the not too distant future has only attracted 49,530 signatures. Meanwhile the petition to stop the badger cull has received 135,662 signatures in a much smaller space of time and a lot more media attention to boot. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t begrudge the badgers. I’m a vegetarian animal lover. Badgers are great. But how come the badger loving masses of old Britannia aren’t signing both petitions?
