Defending Attendance Allowance

Plaid conference has voted against the UK government's plans to cut the incomes of some of the most vulnerable. I moved this motion, which was passed by conference:

"Conference supports the retention of Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance as benefits which allow disabled persons to retain financial independence and notes with concern proposals contained in the UK Government's recent Green Paper "Shaping the Future of Care Together", to abolish Attendance Allowance."

Wow !
What a breath of clean & fresh air we have in Leanne Wood. Now Wales has its own Boedicea fighting the Barbarians of Westminster. Can she win against these self interested overpaid Philistines ? I do hope so with all my heart. I say this with some small self interest, as I am myself a Registered Disabled Pensioner. Wales needs a Champion & your mine. What are we going to do about Leanne? Luv U for forever.
