Department For Work and Pensions: Sack Esther McVey as Minister For Disabled People

When Maria Miller was removed from the job of Minister For Disabled People, disabled people celebrated. But it turns out her replacement, Esther McVey, is no better. In fact, she may be worse. Yesterday, Easter Sunday, she told the Daily Mail that "many of those classed as 'disabled' are not and that 'bodies heal'"
This claim is not only untrue in a significant majority of cases but also extremely hurtful to the 3% born disabled who will never improve. The full interview is here- please read it and then sign this if you share my view that a person with these views on disability should not represent disabled people in Parliament.
