Crippen hears that Disability strategy delayed again!

Having told us that their controversial disability strategy would be published in the spring of this year … then the summer … then “soon”, the government appears to have been forced to delay publication yet again.

Our good friend and fellow activist Doug Paulley, along with several other disabled people have been granted permission to challenge the legality of its consultation process in the high court. This means that the strategy is on hold again, awaiting the outcome of this landmark legal action.

As far back as May 2018, Disability News Service (DNS) reported that the Department of Works and Pension (DWP) was refusing to say what had happened to its last disability strategy, Fulfilling Potential which was first launched in 2011. That one seems to have disappeared into the same black hole that Justin Tomlinson has had installed in his office since becoming Minister for Disabled People.

Description of cartoon for those using screen reading software

Boris Johnson is standing in Justin Tomlinson’s office holding a document that reads ‘more from Dominic Cummings’. Tomlinson is pointing to a large black hole that hovers in the corner and is saying to Boris: “Just toss it in there Boris – that’s where I throw all my disability related stuff!”
