    New research for the mayor of London has shown how 10 years of government welfare cuts and reforms have “discriminated” against disabled Londoners.

    The mayor of London has written to work and pensions secretary Amber Rudd to ask her to reverse a series of government social security cuts, after his report showed the dramatic impact on disabled Londoners of 10 years of welfare reform.

    Labour’s Sadiq Khan (pictured) told Amber Rudd in his letter that the assessment of the combined impact of the government’s tax and social security reforms showed disabled households in London had been “hardest hit” by the cuts.

    He said in comments released alongside the report that the government’s “regressive” policies had discriminated against disabled Londoners, although he did not accuse the government of discrimination in his letter to Rudd.

    Researchers, commissioned by the mayor, carried out a cumulative impact assessment (CIA) of years of tax and benefit changes on adults in London.

    Joss i can never understand disabled people voting Tory, the new cabinet, no matter what BJ says, will cut as much from the disabled as they can get away with.

    Nor can I Brydo. However it’s a strange world we live in now days. I have worked hard all my life. A former Coal miner on the face. Yet when the pits got shut I took my redundancy and used it become a social worker. Then things started to happen to me. My whole life changed.  and for the first time became reliant on benefits.

    We became the target of the Tories. The rest is well documented. The country needs to wake up to the Tory master race and their plans.
