I’ve been banging on about welfare reform on and off all year. The attacks on the vulnerable by this government are insidious and constant. The NHS is under threat. The welfare state is being whittled away. Homeless right to council housing is set to evaporate, and I don’t know where it will stop.
I’d like to ask you to take one action tonight. Sign Pat’s petition. If 100,000 people sign, it might be debated in the house of commons. Maybe the opposition party might find their collective spine and stand up for those who need defending.
Can I ask for another action after you’ve signed? Spread the word. Get your partner to sign. Got a sister or brother? Get them in on the act. Adult children? Line them up too. Share it on Facebook, email your mates, bung it on g+. We’ve got less than a week to make this happen.
I have to believe that there are at least 100,000 people in this country who think what is going on here is wrong. Remember, one day it could be you.
