This is all political speak for no one, especially in politics, expects anyone taking over mid-term to go for a public election. This is especially so for the UK, where all we elect is our own, so called, MP.

‘…….National Autism Campaigner Kevin Healey is calling on the Government on World Autism Awareness week
This week is World Autism Awareness Week, over 700,000 people are now affected by Autism in the UK.
Autism Campaigner Kevin Healey wants Autism to be on top of the political Agenda, and to be included in the manifesto for the Next Prime Minister.
Kevin Healey Said:
“I’m been inundated, on Social media, Parents contacting me saying they are at breaking point, Adults contacting me from all across the UK saying they can’t get an Assessment for a formal Diagnoses of Autism, Parents contacting me about there young children and Adults been sent away too different parts of the UK to various mental health Units, because the system is simply not geared up to help thousands of people affected by Autism Across the UK.
we filmed the campaign short film which was filmed in London last weekend to highlight so many thousands of people asking for support and help, and hope that David Cameron and Ed Miliband will watch this Awareness campaign film during this week of World Autism Awareness week”.
27 year old filmmaker Andrew Dobosz who has Asperger Syndrome, from Cambridge shot the campaign film in London last weekend, alongside Leading Autism Campaigner Kevin Healey who also lives with the condition.

The problem here is that all the powers that be, are treating the current situation as a game. No one in Government, Local Authorities or the NHS is prepared to take responsibility for their own actions and those of their predecessors. The PM and his Ministers are saying we are all in it together, but are we or more so, are they.
With their large salaries and even larger pensions to look forward to, if the have to tighten their belts a little, they will still have plenty to live off. But what about all the people who are just sustaining a living, if they tighten their belts, then they are below sustainance level. Here I am not talking about people who can work but do not. I am referring to a large percentage of pensioners, who due to age, infirmity etc are reliant on their pension, which is just providing a reasonable living. Also many disabled persons, who have physical disabilities meaning they can not work and then there are learning disabilities, whose understanding is limited in that they have little or no understanding of events happening around them and are solely reliant on others for their existence.
There are many disabled persons in this situation, who are unseen by the public at large. They are not claiming benefits because they want to, but out of necessity. We all see a minority of people with disabilities, like the intelectuals, such as Stephen Hawking or the Para-Olympians, who all go through extreme situations to attain these levels and I applaud them. But there is a large majority of people with disabilities, who will never, through no fault of their own, be able to get anywhere near to attaining these levels. Or, in most cases will not be able to start. Some are existing on state benefits and others are cared for by family members 24/7. These family members do it for the love of their relation, without any financial reward and in most cases, without any recognition from the population surrounding them and from any of the state bodies.
But we are all in it together. If you believe in this, then I feel sorry for you, as you have fallen for the propaganda, from the government bodies and the media.
