Last chance to sign Pat’s Petition

Urgent Call to Action

Pat’s petition was created by a group of friends who are all disabled or carers. The petition calls for the government to pause its welfare reforms and properly assess the impact of cuts to benefits and services on disabled people

After a dedicated push by campaigners, disabled people’s organisations and charities the current total for the petition stands at 57,000 but to be considered for debate in parliament it needs to reach 100,000 signatures before the deadline of 10am on 1st November 2012

  1. David that was always going to be a problem but as I’ve stated when you have a prime minister like we have who hasn’t a clue about small detail like the barrier that CAPTCHA would bring and yes there are millions who never use it for the very reason they have no need to and if the need does present itself are unable to unless they persevere

  2. Gave up trying to sign stupid stuff at bottom which cannot read

  3. the petition was always doomed to failure as the British public like the prime minister couldn’t give a damm and i did on the very first day on when it went live said it would fail

    the sick and disabled as a group are finished and i really think it’s about time we wised up as people like sue marsh are just banging their heads on a brick wall and the only true outcome over the next few years will be a lot more premature deaths and that as the prime minister will tell you through the stress of it all is guaranteed

  4. I was all set to sign the petition but I could not do so as I was unable to read the captcha letters and numbers, and when I clicked on the link for an audio version I still could not understand it. This will deter many people from signing, which is a great shame.

    • Hi Lesley

      This is an ongoing issue with the government e-Petitions website that definitely needs to be addressed. If you contact the site administrators using the form at this page: https://submissions.epetitions.direct.gov.uk/feedback explain you are having trouble with their verification system and give them your details and the title of the petition that you would like to sign (Stop and review the cuts to benefits and services which are falling disproportionately on disabled people, their carers and families) the staff there will add your name to the list. Thanks for your support!
