Can we convince enough people to sign the “Justice for Jodey” petition?

I find this very difficult to write.
I find it very difficult to accept that 7 years after we realised that Tory & LibDem Welfare Reforms, as commissioned by Tony Blair from his banker mate Lord Freud, were killing disabled people, these reforms are still killing people.
I find it very difficult to not feel that I and every campaigner for disability rights have failed Jodey and countless others by not stopping these evil reforms from hurting disabled people.
I find it difficult to accept that Iain Duncan Smith and Esther McVey and David Cameron and George Osborne did not anticipate that the welfare reforms they introduced would lead to the Democide of disabled people.
I find it difficult to accept that the likelihood of disabled people being driven to their deaths by these cruel reforms was not foreseeable to those that introduced them.

I find it very difficult to accept that despite our attempts and our lobbying and our calling in of favours and our collecting of signatures and our forcing of MP’s to debate the Democide of the community of disabled people, that Tory & Liberal MPs STILL……. deny that their Welfare Reforms disproportionately hit disabled people and were a causal factor in many excess deaths.Despite coroners writing to multiple Ministers, starting with Yvette Cooper, linking deaths of disabled people with Welfare Reforms;

Despite the disability employment Gap remaining stubbornly high, it doesn’t matter how qualified or capable or experienced or desperate to work disabled people are, few jobs find their way to us;
Despite people still having all of their benefits withdrawn because they are being made to migrate from an old benefit to a new benefit;
Despite evidence of thousands of excess deaths being submitted……….
…: we are still told we are imagining it.

Despite evidence of our deaths, any other perceived prejudice picked up by mainstream media matters more.

No. We DO matter.

Can we convince enough people to sign the “Justice for Jodey” petition?

Well, can we….
