        You only seem to post articles about the SNP.

          When you have had the snp saying for 14 years when we get control of dla/pip we will do much better than the terrible tories. We will be quicker and apply a softer approach. Things will be much better for the disabled in Scotland. Well read the statistics.

            Scotland has had the powers over Adult Independence Payment  since August 2022.  Most renewing their PIP awards will be “light touch” meaning not having to start new applications.  They still use the same company that provides the Motability cars we drive.  So there is a ” quicker, softer approach ” and therefore ” things will be (are) much better for the disabled in Scotland “.

            Here’s a statistic for you; 390 people died whilst waiting for a decision on their PIP claim between 1st and 31st January 2021

            I’ve no intention of getting into a ” tit for tat ” argument as there are faults right through our political system so forgive me if I don’t reply as I find confrontational discussions detrimental to my mental health.  I just wanted to reply and correct your OP.

            Have a great day.

              I agree @carmad as soon as I saw blackj was posting I new what was coming.

              If the two parties are compared, the Tories and the SNP, and you think the latter treats the disabled worse than the former I would suggest there would be no point in a balanced discussion.

              We are all intitled to our our own opinion and I certainly respect the fact that blackj has his.
