A survey carried out by a coalition of charities has highlighted the plight of hundreds of thousands of disabled adults who are receiving inadequate care because of the cuts in public spending.
It reveals that 40 per cent are not receiving enough help even to meet their basic needs and there is a £1.2 billion funding gap for younger disabled adults.
Yet over £20bn has been wasted on the occupation of Afghanistan. An occupation that has killed and maimed thousands of innocent Afghans, destroyed homes and livelihoods as well as cost the lives of 440 British soldiers.
Not forgetting the many others who return home permanently disabled. To face what future?
To finance the military adventure in Afghanistan and to send drones to kill innocent Afghans, the people who need care here must pay the price.
They have to do without proper care and attention, struggle to make ends meet, put themselves at risk and rely on charity to get by.
Spending taxpayer's money on vile weapons and using them to devastate the lives of a people who have never done this country any harm is justified under the subterfuge of "fighting the war on terror." A lie Goebbels would have been proud of.
Cutting spending on weapons of mass terror, raising taxes on the mega wealthy and big corporations, closing down the tax havens of the rich and bringing our troops home should be the policy of the Labour Party.
Not only that, but it is self-evident that this country cannot afford to wait until the next general election to get rid of this bankers' government.
They have to be got rid of sooner rather than later.
