    How can a civilised country allow such outrageous APRs? Just seen an idiot in a cardboard box on tv selling money at 1325%APR.. Jeremy will sort that out, but what about forget it this forum's biggered 25 minutes to post this

    Surprised there is no option to vote to ask about how people with disabilities will be helped. It's not just people with poor mental health that struggle to cope financially. People with disabilities have been disproportionately hit by austerity such as the bedroom tax, cuts to social services, cuts to nhs services, benefit cuts, introduction of pip etc. Rising food and fuel costs are a major concern as these form a large proportion of spending, especially if you can't move much you need more heating. Will parties as a minimum continue to exempt disability benefits from the benefits freeze and maybe even 'triple lock' them like they do for pensions?

    I'm confused.

    I thought people were concerned about why money was or was not being paid to the NHS (including the computer scandal) or whether we would be paying the EU bill, and if we aren't paying it, why we can just forget about it legally. Neither of these seems to be mentioned.
