Backlash continues on disability cuts

Stephen Crabb may have insisted that cuts to disability benefits are restored as a condition of him taking on the Work and Pensions job, but that has not left him in the clear with disabled groups in his own constituency.

As The Times reports nearly 10,000 people have signed a petition demanding his resignation as patron of a local Mencap group because he voted in favour of a £30 cut in ESA for those in the work group.

We wait with baited breath as to whether he decides to reverse this cut in his new role as well.
