Last quote by Frances Ryan

Britain’s debt timebomb isn’t just about zero-hours workers or slashed benefits. Millions on ‘decent’ salaries are being driven to the limit by the cost of living. Julia has a system to survive. Every month, she maxes out her overdraft: £1,000 in the red to pay for utility bills, council tax, mortgage, and food for herself and her daughter. Then the 49-year-old’s salary puts her back in the black – and she does it all over again.feedback

Frances Ryan has most recently been quoted in an article called Britain is no longer a civilised country - the UN’s disability report confirms it. Frances Ryan said, “Bit by bit, the abuse of disabled people in the UK is being normalised. Talk of a human catastrophe in this country is in no way exaggerated. It’s often said that the mark of a civilised society is how it treats its most vulnerable citizens in times of austerity. And in the past week, Britain has had not one but two damning judgments – the first from a committee room in Geneva, the second in a courtroom in London.”. Frances Ryan has been quoted a grand total of 16 times in 13 articles.

The safety net is being picked apart thread by thread and the most vulnerable kids are left to fall through. Benefit cuts come into force today that will push a quarter of a million children into poverty. But what’s terrifying is that when it comes to this government throwing away swaths of children’s futures, this is only part of the picture. With little fuss, the Conservatives have quietly been overseeing a crisis in the system designed to help the country’s most vulnerable children.feedback

The latest government changes equate illness with a lack of motivation, as welfare becomes a tool to modify behaviour. What’s worse: kicking someone because you’ve convinced yourself it will help them, or knowing it won’t and doing it anyway? This isn’t some abstract moral dilemma: with a new wave of “welfare” cuts set to come into force next week, a perverse ideology seems to be driving government policy.feedback
