Stay at home

Just digesting the news that the governments spending review will take away my sons Mobility Allowance. He's officially classed as living in a one person 'nursing home' when not with us, so will lose one of the few benefits he gets. (As a nursing home he doesn't get Income Support etc.) His mobility Allowance bought and runs his wheelchair adapted van. He needs this to get a life, visit relatives, come home each week etc. with all his equipment, so public transport not an option.

Please speak to your MP about this. Even if it's Mr. Osborne!

I don't see any bankers under house arrest - that's what he's condemning disabled people to by taking this away.
