To much apathy or just don’t care?

Since the election Party Leaders have resigned and their respective Parties have got to choose a new one. We hear from the Labour Party that they are not going to rush it and probably not vote until their Conference, in the meantime the Conservatives are going to carry on hitting the disadvantaged hard.

This sounds just like the rest of the UK who unless it is happening to them directly, then they just don’t want to know or get involved.

Why do these sort of people have so much apathy towards other people who are struggling day in day out, trying to make the measly amount of benefit money they get to stretch as far as possible. A large number of parents go with out a meal so that they can feed their children.

There are so many people in the UK who have more money than they know what to do with. Why don’t they give a certain amount each year to help out the disadvantaged people. Why don’t they? BECAUSE they so full of shite and apathy and that they live in an entirely different world to us commoners.

They moan about the slightest thing where the rest of us are fighting against a Government that really wants to take everything away from us which if they are allowed to will kill off a enormous amount of us over the next five years. The rest of us will either out on the streets or working and living in Work and Poor Houses.

So why are we allowing them to get away with it? Well a large number of people are fighting day in day out to try and get things done but they can only do so much fighting before it takes its toll on them.

So don’t you think that it’s time for the rest of us to stop being so apathetic and get our arses in gear and start helping them. We need to be aware that the Government are going to attempt to push through as many new welfare changes before the other parties have a chance to elect their new leaders.

Therefore it is imperative that we commence our new campaigns of protest ASAP and that we learn from the past 5 years and make sure that our protests are carried out peacefully.

We must and should start protesting sooner rather than later. Our protests should and must be held all around the UK, whether it is in a small village or a large City our protests must not only be held at the weekend but also on different days of the week. We must cause as much disruption so as to make the Government look up and listen to our discord.

So Brothers and Sisters let’s stand together and start this long campaign against this disgusting Tory Government.

A Campaign Alone or A United Campaign?

Three days have now passed since the General Election and we have all had time to reflect and digest what happened.

For the rich, big businesses, tax dodging companies and individuals and of course the bankers they are all sitting at home rubbing their hands together thanking the general public for returning the Conservatives to power for five years.

Whilst that is happening, the disabled, sick, vulnerable and low paid are shaking in their boots at the thought of 100 days of Tory cuts carnage as George Osborne plans to fast-track £12BILLION in savings and ‘Pure evil’ Bedroom Tax will hit one million more people as Tories launch their welfare blitz.

Therefore the rich will definitely  get richer and the disadvantage majority are going to be forced either to live on the streets, live in total poverty or commit suicide. The latter of these is the most worrying to think about because the welfare benefits, as bad as they are now, are going to get totally hammered with no thought of the fallout.

It is therefore imperative that we start the fight back NOW.   This is going to be a long long fight  and the outcome is extremely unclear but we need to do it. We don’t have to cause criminal damage or physically attack people, we in fact need peaceful protests and rallies.

What is a needed nationally is for every anti-cut campaign and bedroom tax campaign to join together and take on this Government. We will be far stronger united than trying to stand alone and fight this evilness.

How I look at it is that no one thing is greater than the combined alliance.

I am willing to talk to people about this in person but firstly we all need to agree that we will unite and that everyone is equal.

It is therefore now up to the different campaigns to decide which way is the best way forward.

Please feel free to contact me if you require anymore information.

Same Government – Now a fight for life.

As all the political parties vie for the votes of those remaining undecided voters that could possibly turn the election their way and thus victory, we should be very very wary of their respective manifestos and their so called promises. Especially the one that means that the disabled, poor, sick and most vulnerable people will yet again be victimised with yet more cuts to their welfare benefits.

Which party do we listen to and therefore vote for?

That my friends is totally up to you but it is my personal opinion that whoever wins things will not change , if at all, for quite a while.

So what should we be doing to prepare for the inevitable?

As there are so much apathy throughout the UK, because as it does not really affect them they believe that everything will be honky dory come May. Well people some of you might be lucky and not be affected but there are and will be millions who are and thousands who will believe that the only way to go is to commit suicide.

Because of this DEAEP are looking ahead and preparing for the massive influx of people requiring our help. We will also be actively campaigning and protesting for those who due to their respective medical conditions cannot actively physically protest for themselves.

All that I can hope for from you is that instead of only going on the big London marches that you arrange and take part in marches and rallies that are held in your local areas.

Please fight for your own cause but also join forces with other causes to make our voices heard throughout the country.

LET US MAKE THEM SIT UP AND LISTEN.

What we can not afford is for this to carry on for another five years because by that time there will be a lot less of us than now.

The choice is yours?

Not long now.

The day of reckoning for all the runners who are hoping to win the election and thus run the country.

To date I have only received two leaflets,  1 from the Tories and 1 from the Lib Dems. So what are the rest doing? 

No party has yet to ring the bell and talk to me so as it stands it looks like it could be a spoiled voting sheet because I have a postal vote so not much time to impress me.

As I sit by the river in Abbey Park,  watching the ducks and geese going about their business with not a care in the world., I ponder on the last five years of Coalition Government and how disgracefully and inhumanelly that they have treated the vulnerable,  disadvantaged,  disabled,  sick,  poor and low paid citizens of our country.

I don’t believe I am the only one who dreads the outcome of the election just in case we are going to be victimised, belittled, abused even more by the next Government.

We all know that the Tories will hammer us even more with benefit cuts, sanctions etc. All we have heard from Labour is that they will get rid of the bedroom tax but who are they going to victimise to get the money to fund other things. I think we all know who.

So what have we done to all these politicians for them to keep wanting to attack us so viciously?

If they all believe that we are scroungers and the scum of the country then why don’t they just open up poor houses ang work houses again and then at least we’ll all know where we stand.

What we do and how it affects us.

Today DEAEP took to the road,  well we went 2.5 miles,  and ventured into the realms of putting themselves out in the public eye at the Choice Unlimited Marketing event at the Leicester Tigers Rugby Club.

Okay this does not sound a big deal to most people but when you think that all our staff have numerous disabilities and the time and effort this morning to get prepared just to go to the event shows how dedicated the staff members are. That along with their physical and mental health problems, which they overcame until 3 pm. By this time these people were both physically and mentally shattered.

A great big well done to Jayne, Nicki and Wayne for their perseverance and for showing exactly what DEAEP stands for and how dedicated we are to helping others.

We would like to say thank you to Choice Unlimited for organising the event and for inviting DEAEP to participate.  Also thanks to all the people and companies that showed an interest in what we are trying to do and were willing to work alongside us.

A special thanks to Liz Kendall MP who was extremely interested in what DEAEP was trying to achieve.

Thank you all and hopefully we have gained a new band of friends to help DEAEP move forward with their philosophy of helping people who are being victimised by the changes to their respective benefits and cuts which are being forced upon by the DWP.

Elected Mayor? Who’s got the balls:

This May the people of Leicester will be voting for a new Elected Mayor and new Councillors.  So who has the balls to stand against Mr Peter Soulsby and his many “yes” men.

I have heard through the grapevine that Mr Soulsby has over the past year been selecting his favourite Councillors to stand with him so as to be the core of the next Council.

Whoever stands against him must expect for him to use a dirty tricks campaign against them.  Don’t forget this is the man who has wasted Council money for unneeded changes throughout the City Centre,  he has closed numerous care homes,  enforced the Coalition’s taxes and cuts sacked staff because he didn’t listen to them.

Hands up who think that they are capable of standing against this tyrant and be a real Elected Mayor for the City and its people and not in the position just to further their personal gratification.

Now in May we have the opportunity to join together and rid the City of this uncaring despot. 

So please vote in May and help us get rid of him.

What we need to do now:

DEAEP Supports this all the way

Toto the Activist

I am, like you, getting fed up with the constant bombardment from all the Political Parties slinging non-stop accusations that the other parties are all going to make this country worse off if you don’t vote for them.

The sooner the election is over and we all finally discover that things are no better and probably could be even worse off. By this time people will start moaning and groaning all over the social media networks, starting petitions and campaigns against the new Government. Most of these people are the ones who at the moment have so much apathy and believe that things will get better straight away. Well I’m sorry to say hard luck.

Instead of us all being totally immersed with apathy we should in fact still be campaigning and protesting against this inept Coalition and thus informing the next Government that if things don’t change we are…

What would you do? Because this what we do.

I have been working with a client for the past few months who has numerous medical conditions. This person also looks after his wife who also has numerous medical conditions.

When I first started working with this gentleman it was to advise him on the ESA tribunal that he was going to attend. As I was unable to go to the tribunal with him that I had to arrange for one of our support team to go with him, which also meant introducing him at another meeting.

The tribunal was a success and our client was extremely happy. After a few weeks I had a phone call from this client in reference to three letters he had received from the Job Centre informing him that he had to attend these mandatory interviews.

This gentleman has like numerous other people has developed “Brown Envelope Phobia” and was in a state of panic and anxiety that they were going to stop his ESA payments. This grown man was shaking and started to cry and all he could say was “are they going to stop my money?”

After an hour or so and a few phone calls later I was able to advise him that his benefit was safe as long as he attended the interviews.

Last week he called me as he had received another letter from the Job Centre asking him to go in for another interview but by now his health has noticeably deteriorated and he had to phone the ESA Centre in Peterborough to inform them about his health. We spoke to a very helpful lady who updated his file and told him to get a letter from his Doctor about his health and ask the DWP to consider moving him from WRAG to the Support Group.

At this moment we are waiting for his Doctor to return from holiday because the locum that he saw only gave him a sick note for 8 weeks and not the required medical letter.

As you can see that DEAEP have to spend a lot of time and energy with each case that we take on.

We do all this work for nothing. COULD YOU? WOULD YOU?

We run our Peer Support in Action course for free which is, at the moment, aimed at disabled, disadvantaged, carers and family members.

Could you help us?

#DWP Decision Makers Crying for Help or playing the #Tory Blame-Game?

WTF do they really think that this will make you change your mind xx

jaynelinney

Out of respect for you, I APOLOGISE in advance for my language because I’m LIVID

The ever excellent Benefits and Work website reveal welfare rights workers are experiencing DWP Decision-Makers calling up benefit claimants “‘in tears’ or ‘sobbing’“, pleading with them Not to appeal following a Mandatory Reconsideration !! HOW THE FUCK DARE THEY??

These unqualified low grade civil servants may well be genuinely feeling sorry for themselves, worried at how their bosses will react at their figures.. but, borrowing the much quoted line Frankly..I DON’T GIVE A DAMN.

If the Decision Maker truly feels sympathy for the vulnerable person who’s life they’re ruining, then they should do the decent thing and RESIGN and join the ever growing list of ‘Whistleblowers’, otherwise they have no right to attempt to push their agenda onto you or I. This behaviour is is keeping with the actions of their Bosses –…
