Last quote by Frances Ryan

Bit by bit, the abuse of disabled people in the UK is being normalised. Talk of a human catastrophe in this country is in no way exaggerated. It’s often said that the mark of a civilised society is how it treats its most vulnerable citizens in times of austerity. And in the past week, Britain has had not one but two damning judgments – the first from a committee room in Geneva, the second in a courtroom in London.feedback

Frances Ryan has most recently been quoted in an article called David Cameron’s legacy is soaring child poverty - with worse to come. Frances Ryan said, “The architects of austerity do not suffer the consequences of their cruel policies. They leave that to the poorest in the UK, and their babies and children. The starkest sign that the way society’s being run has gone wrong isn’t simply the harm that’s being endured – say, mass child hunger – but the fact that those watching no longer care. For some reason that thought came into my mind this week, as it emerged David Cameron has a “Calm down, dear – it’s only a recession” poster in his £1.5m second home.”. Frances Ryan has been quoted a grand total of 15 times in 12 articles.

Frances Ryan quotes

The latest government changes equate illness with a lack of motivation, as welfare becomes a tool to modify behaviour. What’s worse: kicking someone because you’ve convinced yourself it will help them, or knowing it won’t and doing it anyway? This isn’t some abstract moral dilemma: with a new wave of “welfare” cuts set to come into force next week, a perverse ideology seems to be driving government policy.feedback
