The Hardest Hit

Bristol South Labour Councillors Derek Pickup, Mark Brain, Colin Smith, Mark Bradshaw and Barry Clark joined MP Dawn Primarolo at the Hardest Hit demonstration in Bristol on 22 October.

In statement which was read out to the rally afterwards, Dawn said:

“The Government’s focus should have been on helping people who are unemployed through no fault of their own to find work.  Instead, they have decided to frighten and bully disabled and terminally ill people for the sake of a few cheap headlines.  


Disabled people did not cause the financial crisis, and they should not be made to pay for it at a time where the bankers are continuing to rake in huge salaries.  Thankfully disabled people are fighting back.  Together, we must continue to work to convince the coalition Government to think again."
