    I thought you'd "be on it. like a car bonnet" as soon as I heard. Bit shocker eh?? Can't say I'm surprised, he has been completely toasted by the disabled community on the cuts to welfare.....all of which we have heard on many many threads on here.
    Many disabled charities have held their own campaigns.....many many Facebook posts (heres where your missing out LT) outting the MP's who voted FOR cuts .....ooooh there will be blood on the decks!!!

    Thought you might be interested in this 'speech' from Stephen Crabb (IDS's replacement)

    https://www.gov.uk/government/speech...welfare-reform

    Not a lot of detail but gives a general overview of where he's coming from.

    Crabb is probably more amenable to what Osbourne is doing.

    Reading that speech, I tend to agree. I'm sure they've made sure to appoint a yes man who will do everything he can to help force these horrible PIP changes through.
