This about time as no helpline should be subject to premium charges, lets hope any others will follow accordingly.

Now iron out all the problems re payments, assessments and any other aspects as these benefits are supposed to help claimants lead independent lives and not cause, upsets, stress, suicidal tendencies, more ill health, etc.

However, this may be the intended outcomes, especially when read inconjunction the the UN report from UN committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities which examined the government’s progress in fulfilling its commitments to the UN convention on disabled people’s rights. https://www.equalityhumanrights.com/en/our-human-rights-work/monitoring-and-promoting-un-treaties/un-convention-rights-persons-disabilities

Theresa May scraps universal credit helpline charges.

People will be able to call the government’s universal credit helpline without being charged, within weeks.

Prime Minister Theresa May said she had listened to criticism of the charges, which can be up to 55p a minute, and decided it was “right” to drop them.

But she again rejected calls by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to “pause” the roll-out of the controversial benefit amid fears it is causing hardship.

MPs are currently debating Labour’s call for a rethink.

Stop UK lies & corruption

Theresa May has had enough of the UN breathing down her neck for violating CRPD lawsand is pulling the plug on their funding.

The United Kingdom had signed up to CRPD optional protocols to protect the rights of disabled people.  It’s a checkbox that gives an appearance the Tories respect disabled people.

In reality the Tories show contempt for the sick, disabled and the poor.  They famously blocked a £3 million fund set up by the EU to help UK’s poor people.

From Vox Political: I agree with Theresa May!

Modern slavery does exist – not least in work schemes for benefit claimants operated by the Conservative government.

Long-term readers will know that This Writer is a firm believer in leadership by example. If Mrs May wants people to believe she wants to fight modern slavery, then let her start with the schemes run by the Department for Work and Pensions.

If the DWP sends a benefit claimant to work for a company, then they should receive at least the minimum wage from that company while they are doing the work. Otherwise, they are being forced to work for the benefit of others rather than themselves, which is slavery.

Until she addresses her own government’s behaviour, Mrs May can never be taken seriously on the wider issues.

Theresa May is to warn that the consequences of failing to get the right Brexit deal will be “dire” for ordinary working people. In a speech in Wales, the Prime Minister will seek to persuade voters that she should lead the negotiations with the European Union, rather than Jeremy Corbyn. According to an advance copy of her remarks, she will make clear how quickly the process will start to move after the election on 8 June.

The Prime Minister was confronted by Cathy Mohan, who has learning difficulties, during her visit to Abingdon.

The furious voter told Mrs May that the ‘fatcats keep the money and us lot get nothing’ .

But Mrs May insisted the government was trying to focus the limited money available on those ‘in the most need’.

Hello everyone! As you may have read a couple of posts ago, I emailed my MP Theresa May about the Mental Health Taskforce. I received a reply from her office and thought I would share the message with you.

“Dear Ms Swatman,

Thank you for contacting Theresa about the independent Mental Health Taskforce. She appreciates your concerns about mental health services.

I hope that you will be pleased to learn that the Prime Minister has recently announced a new approach to mental health based on recommendations from the Taskforce. Thousands of people with mental health conditions will be supported to find or return to work, meaning they have the opportunity to get on in life. The Government plans to deliver true equality between mental and physical health for the first time. An extra £1 billion a year is being provided by this Government for mental health care to make sure…
