Ed Miliband - My Fake Diary
Monday, 27 August 2012
Nicky Clark told us about herself, then commented:
I'm a disability rights campaigner, mother, carer and blogger. I've written for The Guardian, The Independent, New Statesman, C4 News Website and Mencap Magazine. I've been interviewed by BBC Breakfast, C4 News,Sky News,Channel 5 News, BBC- R2, R4, R5live.
I was very vocal on the comprehensive spending review, on propaganda and on political ignorance.
I'd walked out of Ed Miliband's speech in tears at my first conference and his as leader, when he reinforced the idea of disability scrounger as predominating the welfare system.
When he had visited my local Labour Party in the run up to the leadership contest (where as a new member I'd been asked to be CLP Secretary) I asked him in a Q&A session to consider the Tory rhetoric on disability benefits and the fear it was causing.
He said he would consider it.
Well I did consider it!
