CHANCELLOR'S SOCIAL CARE AND 'WRAG' OMISSIONS 'SHOW COMTEMPT FOR DISABLED PEOPLE'

The chancellor has shocked disabled activists by ignoring the social care funding crisis in his autumn statement, and refusing to scrap a planned cut to employment and support allowance (ESA).

Despite weeks of lobbying from disabled people, politicians – including some Tory MPs – and charities, he announced no new money for adult social care.

Philip Hammond’s 6,000-word speech contained not a single mention of disabled people, disability or social care, and there was no suggestion of any u-turn on the £30-a-week cut for new claimants placed in the ESA work-related activity group (WRAG).
The WRAG cut had also been the subject of fierce lobbying, which had again included some Conservative MPs, and is now set to go ahead in April.

Also in many areas the councils are putting up council tax next year at the same time as blaming old people for living longer and being a drain on their care budgets. As if we have never worked and paid and are still paying our taxes. Most of Central Goverrnment have no concept of disabled living or the needs of the elderly. Or the cost both physically, emotionally, socially and financially. I don't think they even care!
