Crippen asks is the government’s decision to reduce lockdown deliberately putting disabled people at risk?

I’m often accused of being a conspiracy theorist, especially when addressing the high number of deaths of disabled people associated with the DWP benefit assessments.

But this latest move by the government to ease lock down restrictions too soon can only be seen as yet another example of their corrupt thinking and a deliberate act to end yet more disabled people’s lives.  

Poor bumbling Boris: portrayed as the good guy, doing his best to protect us all from this virus pandemic. It must have come as an unexpected bonus then when he and his cronies realised that they could continue their cull of the ‘‘useless eaters’ in a way that couldn’t be directly attributed to them.

Imagine it; there’s Iain Duncan Smith rubbing his hands together in glee as his part in the cull has resulted in him being rewarded with a knighthood, and eugenicist Cummings ticking off another box in their master plan to rid society of those of us who are perceived as a burden.

I know that I’m not the only Crip to view the actions of this government with suspicion. Our friends at Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC), Bristol Reclaiming Independent Living (BRIL) and Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled people (GMCDP) have all come out shouting about the callous disregard that this government have towards disabled people during this pandemic.

Dedicated to the memory of disabled activist and DPAC member Manjeet Kaur, who died last month from coronavirus.

Description of cartoon for those using screen reading software

Iain Duncan Smith (IDS), Dominic Cummings and Boris Johnson are all standing in a line wearing identical grey suits and sporting blue ties. Cummings is holding a document that reads ‘Master Plan’ and IDS is holding a magic lamp from which a genie has spouted. The genie is holding a black bottle on which is printed Covid 19. Cummings is saying: “Hmm … I wonder what we could wish for?”
