    Hi @bits . Many of us are trying to fight but we have a bunch of politicians who are largely deaf and blind to all disabled non-persons. Even when MP's do raise issues in Parliament they inevitably raise a constituents individual issue and are easily brushed aside. What we should all be doing is  questioning policy in every area of concern. I spend a lot of time watching the goings on  in  Parliament and have lost count of the number of times the government have cut all debate offby pointing out that spending on the disabled has increased by £7 billion  in the last 10 years. My response to that would be the increased spending is largely a direct consequence of ill conceived and badly administrated policies like PiP.
