    Our Director of Policy shares some real jaw-dropper moments she faced in parliament sessions, the top things politicans have said to her about carers:

    "Carers have a duty to look after their relatives. If they don’t want to do it, that’s just tough."

    "People with disabilities don’t need DLA unless they’re the most severely disabled people."

    "We don’t actually need to put money into supporting carers - they’d do it anyway."

    Read on the policy blog for other top jaw-droppers and her responses and do tell her what else would you add to this list?

    Ann Widecombe said the same a few years back. To be honest if you were here doing what I do and many of us who come in for support and company you would knwo that already Fiza. Its not real though until its you there day to day isolated and lonely and neglected. :cry:
