The following article was taken from the DPAC website.  I would encourage all my readers to join in with this mass tweetathon and remind everyone why the disabled community will not stand by quietly while the disastrous Universal Credit is rolled out.


Tuesday evening February 4th – please join a mass tweetathon to the BBC and especially BBC Two


They are hosting a programme on Universal Credit which we think is the one we were told had been commissioned by DWP along with the adverts DWP placed in the Metro newspapers.

Here are some possible tweets  you could copy and paste
