Here is a fragment of a speech he gave in the commons during a welfare debate in 2014, just one of many such speeches:

Those who campaigned for—and secured—the principles of universal benefits and the welfare state throughout the 20th century, which culminated in the strong principles behind the National Assistance Act 1948, envisaged a society in which we would protect people from destitution, and would have particular concern for those with disabilities, work-related illnesses, or sicknesses that prevented them from working.

Sadly, we now have a system under which many are denied benefits to which they ought to be entitled, and who are living in destitution as a result. Some of them simply cannot cope with that, and suicide results. ………. It is incumbent on the Government to ensure that the cumulative assessment takes place, so that we can be shown the real impact of what we have done to our society over the past three years.


 

Jeremy Corbyn is a long time supporter of disabled people rights, not just with words but with deeds, here is just a couple of examples from 2012 and 2013 right up to this year when he was one of the MPs who were there at the Save ILF Lobby of Parliament in January 

He was a co sponsor of this Early Day Motion in Parliament to save the ILF last year, and has consistently signed EDMs in favour of disabled peoples rights


 

Jeremy Corbyn was a co sponsor of this EDM to Save the ILF


 

Another EDM was started by Jeremy Corbyn way back in 2011 EDM 1836 “Employment Of Disabled People”, this is someone who doesn’t just say the right things at election time, he says the right things because he believes in them.

At the end of this post, is a list of all of the EDMs Jeremy Corbyn has signed, sponsored and been the primary sponsor of – its a very long list, and stands as a testament to the consistent level of support he has given to disabled people over the last five years.

If you are not a Labour member already, you can sign up to vote for a Labour Leader who has a proven track record of support for disabled people here

and there is a great website to share here – Make Labour Awesome Again – Vote Corbyn

 


There is another MP that needs a mention here as well, someone who has shown his unfailing and unwavering support for DPAC over the years, and has earned the love, gratitude and respect of DPAC. Yes, Mr John McDonnell MP, this is you we are talking about, thank you.


 

EDMs that Jeremy Corbyn has signed, sponsored and been the primary sponsor of.

An EDM (Early Day Motion) is a way that backbench MPs can register their support for a particular issue.

  1. The 26th of July 2015 Mark’s the 70th Anniversary of the Labour Party Winning the General Election of the 5th of July 1945 by a Landslide

    Under this Labour Government the Welfare State and the National Health Service were Established

    The 1945 Labour Government may Not of been Perfect but is an Improvement over the Evil Regimes of Jezebel of the British Margaret Thatcher the Tawdry Con Dem Regime of 2010 and the Tory Millionaires Regime of May 2015 .

  2. Jeremy Corbyn is Clearly the Best of the Candidates the most Committed to Social Justice which
    includes a Welfare State that Helps Not Hurts

    Britain Needs to be Free of Tory Tyranny
