New Report shows opposition to Coalition's Benefits reforms kept hidden by government
press realease issued this morning, a new report indicates that there has been considerably more opposition to the government's benefits reforms (currently being discussed in the Lords) than thought previously. The report which is a forensically researched examination of the government's proposed changest to Disaiblity Living Allowance is hard hitting and direct, and demonstrates the huge holes in the government's arguments. It is hoped, that armed with this new information, crossbench peers and some Lib Dems in the Lords will now begin to resist Lord Freud's and the government's proposals on DLA reforms. The report was entirely funded, researched and written by disabled activists and gives the lie to the a lot of the spin released by the government.
