The DWP just sneaked out a massive piece of ‘fake news’ on a Sunday morning

Post by Admin on Mon Jul 30, 2018 10:18 am

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) announced a ‘major’ policy shift on Sunday 29 July. But in reality, all it’s doing is giving back a benefit it took away from countless disabled people four years ago. One campaigner has called the DWP announcement “the very definition of fake news”.

The DWP: a good day to bury fake news?

The DWP and the Department for Transport (DfT) have announced changes to the Blue Badge parking scheme. It was originally launched in 1970 to allow disabled people to park without charge. But previously in England [pdf], people generally only got a blue badge if they have difficulty walking more than 50m, or if they have other issues with physically getting around.
