They have decimated the welfare system

Not only not listened to the UN, but state that the UN are wrong

State that people working in Social Care are going over and beyond their Duty of Care, which is true, while paying them a disgraceful salary, they are entitled to be paid, at least the Real Living Wage, while many are only on the National Living Wage

Not respecting Human Rights

Plus many more

This government is First Class, yes a First Class Disgrace. and they should be held accountable for their disservice to disabled people and Social Care workers
