Sack Maria Miller as Disability Minister

I as a disabled person and the rest of the disabled community have little or no confidence in our disability minister.
The DWP and ATOS medical assessments do not work resulting in many seriously ill and disabled people being found fit for work when physically they can not, backed up by all major disability charities many GPs and the citizens advice bureau and the 8000 appeals every month.
End the discrimination of the disabled as scroungers by the media etc when they are not, most disabled people have shown unbelievable strength, spirit and struggle daily with their varied problems and pain to attain some form of a near to normal life as they can
The removal of the mobility component to people in care homes that has removed their ability to socialise and leave their homes.
Future plans to asses all DLA claimants in the with the same flawed assessment.
Cuts to essential disabled services respite care etc.
Where is the voice of our Disability Minister how can all this be unnoticed or is it being ignored.
Disabled people committing suicide because their situation is unbearable due to the above problems.
WHAT IS THE DISABILITY MINISTER DOING ABOUT THIS NOTHING SHE SHOULD HANG HER HEAD IN SHAME AS THERE IS NO UNDERSTANDING OR EMPATHY WITH THE COMUNITY SHE PROPORTS TO DEFEND!

    As a disabled person (who is lucky enough to have a job), I think it is disgusting that ATOS can’t even be bothered to assess disabilities properly.

    when I heard Maria Miller say “well it cant be right that alchoholics and drug addicts get Higher rate DLa ” I wondered what planet this woman is on. She said it in a nervous apprehensive way,as though repeating something she had heard. How much does she get paid for spouting this ill informed drivel. She is supposed to be an intelligent,educated woman,not some nerveridden,indecisive,ill informed ignoramous. GET HER OUT OF OFFICE NOW!!!!

  3. Susan Donoghue UNITED KINGDOM

    I am disgusted with a government who claims to listen and theN ignores its voters and continues with its cuts.

    A government that does not care for its young, vulnerable disabled and elderly is in the words of David Cameron a “sick” society

    Stop ignoring the long term sick… I was close to not bothering to sign. #mecfs

  6. rob menzies UNITED KINGDOM

    she has not clue

  7. Sandra Eyston UNITED KINGDOM

    Only qualified Doctor’s can assess people correctly, lay people who are paid to sign people as fit to work are highly dangerous. Being disabled is not a career choice, we would prefer to be able bodied and have the same rights as everyone else. We are not 3rd class citizens.

  8. Sam Marsh UNITED KINGDOM

    I have no confidence in her policies. They are not promoting equal rights in any way. She’s a disgrace to politics.

  9. Natasha UNITED KINGDOM

    My father has difficulty walking. He struggled into his disability assessment leaning heavily on a walking stick. The ‘Doctor’ noted him as “walking with a normal gait”

    Absolutely atrocious!

  10. Nick Pocklinton

    Fraud is wrong, respect will never be given to politicians without them acting respectful to the people they serve. She must be fired like rest of the 99.99% of population would have been if we did this at work.

  11. Richard UNITED KINGDOM

    because she cannot be trusted
    as event’s of 2014 have proved!
    plus we are not all scrounger’s like here*

  12. Chris UNITED KINGDOM

    THE MODERN MP’S THINK THEY CAN LITERALLY SCREW THE PUBLIC, ALL OF THEM IN GENERAL LACK INTEGRITY AND ANY SENSE OF SHAME

  13. alan corrigall UNITED KINGDOM

    SHEER GREED AT THE TAXPAYER’S EXPENSE

  14. alan corrigall UNITED KINGDOM

    ONCE AGAIN, POLITICIANS FEEL THEY ARE FREE TO MAKE MONEY BY MILKING THEIR PARLIAMENTARY EXPENSES. IN THE REAL WORLD OF BUSINESS THEY WOULD BE SACKED AND PROSECUTED FOR FRAUD…. BUT NOT IF YOU ARE CHUMS WITH DAVE CAMERON.

  15. rachel UNITED KINGDOM

    I am disabled and the benefit reforms and biased medicals are unfair and are causing many people including me a lot of stress and anxiety, I have a friend who is disabled and has been told she has to get a job, she is 56 and in ill health, it is so unfair and is not in the interest of disabled people, the benefit reforms are simply a way of the government saving money with no thought of the lives that it affects

  16. IAN FAIRBAIRN

    these people i.e. mp’s think they are untouchables, if it had been anyone in a normal job they would be sacked and lose any pension accrued, sack her and any other mp who thinks they can con the public

  17. IAN FAIRBAIRN

    It is time MPs, bankers etc are accountable for their actions which are sheer greed, in any other occupation they would be jailed and lose pension rights.
