Close readers of this blog will know I try to cover broad disability-based issues. This reflects both a personal and professional interest, as well as my belief that how politics and policy addresses disability equality issues is essentially a proxy for how they treat people as a whole.
In the last week or so, I’ve highlighted the coalition government’s potential position with regard to Disability Living Allowance, covered the implications of introducing medical assessments for DLA and the Equality & Human Rights Commission’s call for evidence for its disability harassment Formal Inquiry.
The folks at Benefits and Work have cleverly brought together those items and are suggesting people
shop the Department of Work and Pensions to the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) [and] help us to place the blame for the increasing hatred and harassment of disabled people where much of it belongs – at the doors of the DWP and its ministers.
What a clever thing to do, if you were so inclined. (Via lilwatchergirl and @SNPsupporter)
