“If you want something done in this country you have to complain until you’re blue in the mouth”- John Cleese
It seems like her Majesty’s Opposition have something brewing… or at least one of them does…
Here’s my reply from Michael Meacher MP
Dear Mr Warner,
Many thanks for contacting me with details about your experiences with ATOS. I am extremely sorry to learn how badly you have been treated.
It is my intention to build up a dossier of cases such as your own which I can make use of in the future to argue for radical changes to the present unfair and incompetent system. In particular, I will be calling for a full Parliamentary debate on ATOS through the procedure of the Backbench Business Committee and I am also seeking a meeting with the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith MP.
As you are not one of my own constituents, I will not be able to take up your individual case with your local agencies Im afraid, as this must be carried out by your own MP. But it would be very useful to make use of your experiences when I make representations about the ATOS system as a whole.
Can you kindly confirm that you would be happy for me to use your details in this way? Also, would you be willing to be contacted in the event of any interest from the press or broadcast media?
Michael Meacher MP
Of course I replied in the affirmative: I doubt the response we will get will be anywhere near what is needed to draw a line under disability rights forever but this is a start. Mitt Romney famously claimed to have “binders full of women” well now Mr Meacher seems to be gathering “Binders full of Crimes Against Humanity” I hope against hope it buries the Tories in all parties for good.
Dear Mr Meacher
After your so called Shadow Minister for the Disabled’s shabby performance in recent days which has led to a complete collapse of trust in your party by the vast majority of the disability rights movement (again) I’m glad to hear you are calling for stories of ATOS/DWP abuse and suggestions for how to remedy the situation.
I have been in frequent correspondence with my own MP David Burrowes (Conservative: AKA the British Rick Santorum) which I have published HERE
I also emailed Mr Byrne before his shambles of a non addressing of the issue HERE
If he had read the thing instead of directing me to your rather pathetic “make up our policies because we can’t be bothered” website all of this could have been avoided and you could well have obliterated your opponents by now.
My personal story is somewhat boring an not nearly as shocking as those of my colleagues in the Black Triangle Campaign because I have (just about) the means to work around the problems these criminals have caused me and every disabled person in this country. You can find it in this YouTube Video
The full details of the crimes of Maria Miller, Ester McVey, Iain Ducan Smith, Chris Grayling and the multinational gangsters both your party and they have sold our disabled to are detailed on the Black Triangle Website in addition with the help of some armchair lawyers and my own knowledge of history I have come up with a nuclear option
The facts people like Black Triangle have uncovered just with FOIs and harsh language are more than enough to prove the criminality of these nefarious characters so imagine what a bunch of coppers with search warrants could achieve?
I don’t hold out much hope for what MP can achieve (despite planning to run myself in 2015) but I hope you are serious in challenging this atrocity and bringing all responsible to swift and brutal justice
