The cuts were slammed by disability and mental health organisations, politicians of the opposition and others.

The government is intent on hitting the most vulnerable whilst giving tax breaks and other perks for the richest in society.

In the ESA we know many people with serious mental health issues with complex problems who need to be placed into the support group, it is not sure why they are in the working related activity group, and would urge all those in the group to seek support in moving you into some safety in the support group.

£30-a-week is a gigantic cut and sadly today March 29 only one politician from Scotland tried to delay the plans until a proper debate was held, the speaker of the house John Bercow told him that their was not going to be any debate.
