    Labour have no Disabled MPs so I hope to put myself forward for Oldham West and Royton seat.
    I was part of the Lobby of Westminster on 24 June 2015 to emphasise imminent closure of Independent Living Fund (ILF). I was shocked by how many of Leadership/Deputy MPs knew little about ILF or what it signified… “The right to be an inclusive member of society”.
    I have been a long standing campaigner for equalities and justice and I am guilty about not supporting just disability issues because I was lucky not to have been segregated from mainstream life, education and work.
    We have fought for women now 34% of Labour MPs are women (50:50)
    We have fought for BAME now 10% of Labour MPs are BAME (Population 13%)
    We forget our disabled members and 0% Labour MPs are disabled (Population 19%- more if fully include unseen disabilities).

    Anyone want to help promote my cause #More disabled MPs to give us genuine fighting chance in Westminster>

    Thanks & power on !!!

    I think the competition for leader revealed those who believed this. It seemed to be held by those who got the least votes ie New Labourites. I joined the party after Jeremy Corbyn was elected as he appeared hold inclusive views on disability

    After the mess which was ATOS and then being asked to join the labour disability group, only to find out they had never had a meeting in all the years it was going. I decided to leave the labour party, and I notice again Labour now again speaks about hard working people, for example labour is the party of work, meaning what your not the party of those that cannot.

    I’m disabled so will wait to see how labour will speak about me and people like me, will I be the same as I was under New labour a liability to the party.
