I was told it was to be called the N.W.M.== not worth much More like W.F.A Worth F*** All http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_lol.gif I'm all for simplifying DLA but this takes the biscuit. Looks like the reform is set to screw over people who have disabilities that fluctuate and exacerbate sporadi...
<t>I agree Meg, <br/> <br/> What does it for me, is the fact that most claimants would not have the ability to pay the money back and any repayment would financial cripple them.<br/> <br/> Rightfully, the DWP are going to be more careful in future but if they are more careful then they will be a bet...

I was thinking it might work well if there is one character who is really lovable and you would think they'd be really sympathetic to our main characters, but then they turn out to hold the misconceptions - I think that would really challenge people because it makes things less black and white i.e....
Nice! You've been working hard. An addition to that that might be useful is if carer two (because he keeps his caring quiet) befriends someone who later goes on to criticise carers or perhaps people on benefits (many carers included of course) not realising what carer two does. That might directly ...
I've been thinking. Two carers. Carer One, a woman in her early thirties cares for her child, she has just moved into the area from an affluent countryside area as her husband chucked her out as she cared about the child more she did for her husband and his business (the ex-husband is a right 'orrib...
I wonder if it would take a primetime hard-hitting drama about a carer (that would have appeal to a wide audience) that somehow captures the public imagination, and provokes anger.
