We have 2 weeks booked at the Lake district for the last 2 weeks in July, just me and the hubby, and our son is staying with his grandparents as my hubbys stepmum was a nurse and knows how to do all his dressings.

 

Roll on 15th July, 2 weeks of trying to be a couple again, instead of parents.

Maz, one of the funniest reminisences I read was in a book by Norman Harper and Robbie Shepherd. It goes a bit like this:

 

On a holiday, a lad from the North East (Scotland) decides to go jet ski-ing. He is handed a pair of skis, and having never worn them before enquires of the guide: "Here min, fit fit fits fit fit?"

 

It's rather funny when I talk in my native tongue to my family on the phone, everyone around me looks completely bewildered. And hilarious when people think it's gaelic - it's quite amazing the amount of people who have never heard of Doric, or the "mither tongue" as we better know it.

 

I'm fair tane wi the wye we spik!! - And nice to meet a fellow spikker o the doric! (Just think the fun we could have on here, very few people would have the foggiest idea what we were saying!) :D

I'm a Born and bred Bristolian! Talking of dialect one of the funniest things I've heard in my life was when I was about 14, my father, a very keen gardener gave our nextdoor neighbour some rather large leeks. I then heard my neighbours wife's exclaim from the kitchen.....

Here you are what do you make of this all:

 

Dear Mr C,

 

I am writing on behalf of Gordon Brown, Prime Minister and Leader of the Labour Party, to thank you for your recent message and for your support of the Labour Party. The Prime Minister appreciates you taking the time to write and the comments that you have made in your message about disabilities have been read and carefully noted.

 

As you may be aware, the Prime Minister is currently travelling around the country during the General Election Campaign, meeting and listening to the concerns and ideas of many people like yourself. He has asked me therefore to respond on his behalf.

 

Labour is determined that the UK should always be a world leader in disability rights and we have legislated to provide protection against discrimination at work, while also offering new support for people into work. We will always seek to strengthen the rights of disabled people to access services, work and to be supported to make the choices they want to make in their own lives.

 

Disability Living Allowance (DLA) supports Labour’s welfare reform agenda which supports people into work. It is paid to people with care and/or mobility needs irrespective of whether they are working. Those who qualify for the higher rate mobility component can use the Motability scheme to lease or buy a car, with further support to provide specialist adaptations.

 

We are bringing forward part of next year's increase to be able to raise Disability Living Allowance above inflation this year and from April 2011 we will extend the higher rate mobility component of DLA to over 20,000 severely visually impaired people, allowing them greater freedom to get out and about, either socially or to find work. At current rates this will mean an additional payment worth £30.45 a week to those who qualify (£1,583 per year).

 

Between 1979 and 1997, the number of people on incapacity benefits trebled, and people were left without the support to help them ever return to work. Over the last decade the employment rate for working age disabled people has increased from 42 per cent to 47 per cent, with the gap between the rates for disabled people and the general working-age population decreasing from 32 per cent to 26 per cent. In total, there are now an additional 576,000 working-age disabled people in work at the end of 2009 compared to the end of 1999.

 

Labour will ensure that if disability benefits for older people are reformed as part of the proposed National Care Service, people receiving the affected benefits at the time of reform will continue to receive the same level of cash support, under a new and better care and support system. We have also ruled out any changes to working age Disability Living Allowance as we establish the National Care Service

 

We strengthened the Disability Discrimination Act in 2005, fulfilling the Government’s commitment to a comprehensive and enforceable set of civil rights for disabled people, and in 2006 we introduced a duty on public authorities to promote equality for disabled people, known as the Disability Equality Duty. We are further strengthening disability discrimination legislation through the Equality Act.

 

By 2015 our £370 million Railways for All scheme will improve the accessibility of our train stations. Of this, £35 million per year is targeted at improving access at the busiest stations to ensure an accessible route within each station which includes providing step-free access. Labour has also introduced free nationwide off-peak travel on local buses for the over-60s and eligible disabled people in England.

 

I hope you find this information helpful.

 

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

 

Best wishes,

Chris Murray

Wow what a load of bull he spouts.

 

I worked for HMRC and fell ill due to my disabilities. Lets put it this way there was plenty of discrimination towards me and at all times plenty of attempts to fire me and infact they did ... however I started formal procedings and before they went fully ahead they decided to change the decision to fire me and to retire me on ill health... and due to the long lengh of replies etc I was outside the date to take them to court for discrimination.... I just wish I knew then what I knew now.

 

All I wanted was them to keep my job open in a suitable place while i try and have myoperation and recoup to some sort of health that allowed me to get back to work , now with all the stress etc am still unwell and awaiting further treatment to help me with the servere pain iam in ...

 

So our government spouts one rule but dont follow them in house.

 

HR and management attitude was I work you should ... tey auto assumed my back and nerve problems were a simple back ache wich everyone gets.

In the end I have had to scan the copy of the Tribunal result and email it to Peter and he will make sure everything is done in the next few days.

I hope you'll let us know when it's published. I'm just searching online for campaigns and finding very little apart from this one. I don't think that most chronically sick people have the energy however angry we are.

 

 

The story is still ongoing, and we are waiting to hear about the appeal for son's ESA and then the Record can get the whole picture!!!

 

Watch this space as things may get a bit hairy!!!!!:D
