Crippen gives a Wake Up call!

We are losing the legislative safety net that we fought so hard to establish and the majority of disabled people in the UK seem unaware that it is happening.

Those of us who took to the streets back in the day and demonstrated and protested about the lack of access to mainstream society, the lack of accessible transport and the lack of legislation to protect us from the discrimination that permeated our lives both socially and in the work place, have watched in disbelief as this government systematically dismantle everything that we fought for. And no one seems to be doing anything about it.

Along with other Bloggers and disabled activists I’ve tried to raise awareness of the fact that the dismantling of the parts of our democracy that provides the equality safety net for disabled people is happening now, in front of us.

This government no longer seem to have any accountability for its actions, as what would normally have led to sackings or resignations are now accepted as the norm. And of course, it’s the usual outcome of such behaviour that eventually leads to a scapegoat being needed.

Recognise the pattern? It has happened before and it will certainly happen again if we allow it.

Description of cartoon for those using screen reading software

Boris Johnson and Demonic Cummings are standing looking at a large poster which has a group of disabled people on it. The poster reads ‘Wanted for crimes against society – The Disabled’. There is also one of the infamous ‘be alert’ signs on the wall amended to read ‘Be alert – blame the disabled’. Cummings is saying to Boris: “The public will need someone to blame when it all hits the fan!” Boris replies: “Brilliant Dom!”

One response to this post.
