    Two-faced Cameron ?

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 04 Sep 2012, 1:36 pm

    It was reported today that David Cameron on the one hand has congratulated the disabled athletes in the paralympics and on the other hand he is hitting the independence of the very same group of people by closing down the Remploy factories.

    Read THIS report and see if you can resist getting angry at this duplicitous behaviour.

    They closed the Remploy factory in the disabled village near me more than ten years ago (it was the Furniture factory).

    Yes HG, this is a disgusting policy that only serves to hurt the weak, the sick and the poor.

    No it doesn't - it is like any factory closure except those made redundant enjoy a better level of state benefits. Unfortunate yes, but an economic reality caused, amongst other things, by people like yourself buying things not made in this country.

    Rubbish !

    What Cameron and his cruel cronies are doing to the Remploy factories is nothing short of barbaric.

    Shutting down these vital factories and services - that are doing quite well in this financial climate - only serves to do it in a way that means that the workers getting thrown onto the already-crammed dole are being made redundant without paying them a full redundancy package.

    Even if these factories - which are especially set-up, equipped and managed to get the best out of disabled people - WERE not fully self-maintaining they really should be dealt with in a way that is tailored to the needs of the people that they employ. They should never be dealt with like any other factory or place of employment as what they do is a unique service where they ensure that disabled people can find dignity, self-respect and independence outwith the normal scheme of things.

    They DESERVE to be treated differently as they and only they provide the special skills that allow disabled people to work and earn the money that makes them feel that they are a full part of this society.

    See THIS and get yourself educated.

    The Remploy factories do an excellent job, helping disabled folk work and keep their self-respect and independence to a great extent--- And, Keeps them OFF Jobseekers Benefit, where there are already too many folk chasing too few jobs.

    Clapco, please do your research before you shooot from the lip!
