Protest Next Week Over Disability Assessments


Robert Farrer is hoping to have good support for a protest at the Tynwald building next Tuesday over disability assessments here’s his message:

“I am so mad about the Questionnaire that is been given to ill and disabled people to see if they fit to work.

I know the stress that it has caused people with long term and life threatening conditions when they have been passed by a NOVICE to work and even lost there appeal even when detailed medical records show they not fit for work.

This government promised to look after the most vulnerable in our society.

What a load of nonsense that was.

Please join me outside Tynwald for a protest about this non caring government.

They need telling by the way the Manx know best …In a friendly way on Tuesday at 9.30….SEE YOU THERE”

If you can’t be present but you want to support his call to protect people with disabilities you can email your MHK and let them know you support Rob’s protest.
