There have been so many attacks on disabled people, the NHS and public services. I am just scared that there will be even more after the election, if the Conservatives get in. It is seriously scary.

Omg another one? SERIOUSLY? cannot wait for these bloody elections to be over!

You have every right to be scared if you don't want the Tories in.

Coz they ARE going to win.

brasty Mon 15-May-17 23:38:39

I am disabled, so this is personal.

Get a grip. Imagine if labour got in there would be strikes, financial ruin for all. They would run out of money in 5 minutes and inflation would be astronomical

Erm the conservatives already are in grin

No Government has enough control of the economy to make that much of a difference to inflation

But we are just getting over the labour government financial disasters. I and I think most people want financial stabilitity so more money can go to DLA. That is a priority for me.

Wishforsnow Mon 15-May-17 23:44:01

I said get a grip prior to her post or at the same time. I'm not psychic.

What Labour Party financial disasters would those be Wishforsnow?

You know the Torie's have borrowed more in the last 7 years than every Labour government ever?

It is the NHS I care about most. I am a heavy user and the idea of an insurance system terrifies me, or co pay. I don't get PIP, and even basic medical travel insurance for me is very high. Even just the real cost of my medicine would be a strain on my bank balance.

I agree. I'm also fearful. Nothing we can do as individuals, the electorate have swallowed the media bias. I'm ashamed to say one family member told me she will not vote Labour because JC rarely wear's a tie wtaf! Let's hope pensioners realise they are about to be bent over by the tories and vote Labour. Doubt it though

Im afraid you have a point OP. When this young woman left a cafe she found that something had been left on her mobility scooter.

we are just getting over the labour government stabilitity so more money can go to me.

Fixed your post Wishforsnow.

More momentedium.

cantbefaffed My 67 year old DH has always voted Labour Hes never voted Tory in his life. Hes now being "transferred" from DLA to PIP.

brasty Mon 15-May-17 23:53:41

Maybe I shouldn't have posted this.
Not really looking for a political debate, just scared. I just want the NHS to be safe guarded.

And blerp I have posted on threads criticising Corbyn. So you are wrong. I am more a centre left voter.

Wishforsnow Mon 15-May-17 23:56:12

I wrote more money should go to DLA. Odd that anyone wouldn't want that. lostsight - do you not think that is what most work toward, ensuring their tax is spent in the right place primarily DLA as hub priority. But if there is no money there as there is no financial stability the people who should have the biggest increases now simply won't.

brasty Mon 15-May-17 23:58:17

Also there needs to be much improved social care. What is happening is a disgrace.

StickThatInYourPipe Mon 15-May-17 23:58:37


I am probably being really thick but I can't work out what that is? Looks like a coffee filter?

Awful! But still mind want to know what the fuck!
