WOW Campaign say: Colin Brewer must Resign or be Fired

A Cornish councillor who said “disabled children cost the council too much money and should be put down” is refusing to resign. Colin Brewer, the Independent for Wadebridge East in North Cornwall, made the comments to members of Hayle charity Disability Cornwall. The ardent disability campaigners and the angry former salesman clashed as he left a ‘difficult debate’ and walked into an equalities fayre at Town Hall in October 2011.
As a disablist statements goes this one rather takes one's breath away doesn't it? "Disabled children cost the council too much money and should be put down." A horrifying statement by anyone's standards, but what makes it even more horrifying is the man who said it. This was not an ignorant comment by someone who didn't know any better. It was made by Colin Brewer, elected councillor for Cornwall Council. What makes it even worse is that he said it to Disability Cornwall, at an equalities event, that was intended to inform councillors of the issues faced by marginalised groups. Equally shocking is that the only sanction he has faced is to be asked to apologise for what he said.

Well that's not good enough. Elected councillors are there to carry out the work of the council, which includes a duty of care to people with disabilities. That a councillor would think this, let alone say it to a Disability organisation, is an absolute disgrace. Councillor Brewer should resign immediately. He is unfit for public office.

20,000 People Have Signed The WOW Petition

*** 20,000 ***

The WOW Petition has over 20,000 signatures!

A huge thank you for signing and sharing this urgent and important petition. The good news is that we are on target to reach our goal of 100,000 signatures

 During a television interview for ITN, Margaret Hodge MP, chair of the Public Accounts Committee revealed that the Department for Work and Pensions have figures of the deaths of 1300 people who are known to have died after being found "fit to work". MPs have acknowledged that the department is causing "misery and hardship" to benefit claimants. Government ministers are trying to defend a broken system. They must accept and take responsibility for allowing harm to be inflicted on sick and disabled people by the work capability assessment which is not fit for purpose, and the suffering caused by the cuts to benefits and care services that target people when they are most vulnerable. 

Support is growing from charities, organisations and individuals. It is essential that you please continue to tell as many people about this petition as you can and ask them to sign. Together we can make a difference!
