    Another well presented Newsletter and very informative. Well done Sally. I was sadened to read the awful treatment by Atos and wish all those who appeal the best of luck. People facing Cancer or a diagnosis of Cancer should never be caused extra worry like this. I congratulate the 2 Doctors who spoke out and hope more come forward. To even insult Disability by choosing cuts this way is appauling. Surely the Court of Human Rights should be informed. I did listen to debates on Alcoholism and Drug Addiction and was Horrified at the attitude. Alcoholism is a very serious illness and is not, or should not be confused with those who choose to live life in public houses. I have watched people die, some in their 20s, I lost a very dear friend from Telford and one from Stoke. What I saw at Stoke sticks in my mind as the person was in Bed, the bed badly burned by smoking Drunk. I was told this person was dialing 999 for help, as a result of too many calls BT operator restricted the phone, hence this person is now dead. Now we are all living on Camerons Plannet we must look forward to far more of sad stories like this.
