Disability campaigners, Black Triangle, announced yesterday that the Mental Health Resistance Network’s application for judicial review has been granted. They will now be able to challenge the coalition’s flawed Work Capacity Assessment, which has been finding people with severe disabilities fit to work, and removing their disability allowance. This has been having a devastating impact on these vunerable peoples’ lives, with the Mirror reporting that a heartbreaking 32 people a week are taking their lives after failing the test.
Black Triange said :
“It means that their case can now go on to be heard and the WCA will be reviewed by the judiciary to test its legality and compatibility with both human rights and domestic legislation and common law protecting the rights of individuals from the actions of the State!”
La Bouche fully supports this movement and are delighted to hear of its progress. Whilst the elite are given a tax boost, this barabric attack on those with disablies is quite simply beyond unacceptable. This country can afford welfare for everybody in need and we will not put up with this.
