    The SNP have said in their manifesto that they will overhaul the PIP system in Scotland  to end the misery suffered by disabled people.

    Have heard nothing from other political parties about doing the same - or anything about help for disabled people at all.

    I live in Scotland and have just had a PIP home assessment as a change over from DLA.  Haven't yet heard back from them but my DLA has run out and Motability will be taking my car back any day.  So we are just as much in the mire as everyone else in the UK I am afraid.

    In the UK,  DLA is in payment until a PIP decision is made.
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
