As if it wasn’t hard enough for people with un-controlled neurological conditions to fill in the forms and go for interviews already. Unfortunately, it’s always the people who really need the help who will get hurt. People with mental health issues, low literacy, mobility issues etc will end up on the street and if this continues London’s homeless figures will soar this summer, autumn and winter. And at the very same time Boris Johnson (mayor) can’t be bothered to take the union representing Transport for London seriously and start the negotiations ahead of the strike that is about to commence next week. Never have I felt the social democratic blood that runs in my veins stronger than today.
