A 'human catastrophe'

I think everyone should be made aware of this damning and horrific Mirror article. The United Nations has called the treatment of people with disabilities in the UK a 'human catastrophe'. ''It said the Government's austerity measures had left half a million disabled people worse off, pushed them into unsuitable accommodation and left many living in poverty.'' This is sickening, and yet you barely hear a word about it in the media in general. What the tories are doing is depraved and callous, and the UN has just confirmed what we have been saying for years. What worries me is, things now stand to get a lot worse: Historically our human rights were safeguarded by things like the ECHR; now we're leaving the EU, the tories will tear up such equality legislation saying it got in the way of business, and we'll be left defenceless. In that case, this is only the beginning. If vermin like Fox, Farage and Gove get their way, the privileged white heterosexual male will be given free reign to dominate everyone else. Such insults too human civilisation must be stopped before they wind the clock back to Victorian times.
