Campaign Update...

Hi guys, we got up to Glasgow to the Anti Bedroom Tax protest ok!

Looby came to keep Coo company and off I set with mum!
We made the trip with some members of my wee Carers Group and it was a good day!
There weren't many of us - everyone's not so lucky and I'm really glad to have, our SDS (Self Directed Support)  care package in place. I have access to respite and can use it to do things that are important for me...Things like today for one!

Thousands of people turned out at Glasgow Green, to stand up and let their feelings be known and...good for them!
I'm glad we managed to go! It was an important day!
Carers and disabled people seldom protest or march - I guess we just don't have the energy to take on the officials but this time it's different - we can't afford not to!
The 'Bedroom Tax' will have a massive negative impact on Carers and disabled people alike. Most are just not in a secure enough financial position to pay the additional rent bills and like Coo and I can't move to a smaller property as the house has been adapted to help cope with the disability!

Where it all will end nobody really knows but I do hope the authorities begin to listen as for Carers and people with disabilities, this is one of the most damaging pieces of legislation, government has ever introduced.

Sadly, I have a feeling the fight is just beginning, wish us some luck as we surely need it!

Hi Poppy, it's so unfair! The greedy bankers created this massive deficite and now the most vulnerable are being made to pay!
We need to stay strong and support one another!
