The new Spartacus report, Smokescreen, into the government's Green Paper on Work and Health, is out. I'm listed as a co-author as it incorporates my 'Ticked Off' dissection of Disability Confident, but didn't actually do any work on the main report - which is a monumental, spectacular effort by Caroline Richardson and Stef Benstead.

TLDR: The government want us to see disabled people as the problem in disabled people being unable to work, rather than challenge employers as the actual cause of the Disability Employment Gap.

Executive summary of Work and Health: The beatings will continue until disability employment improves. *Headdesk*

Yeah, I'm glad this blog entry based on a conversation I had with Scope finally went live yesterday, I tried to address the fact that this isn't a problem that can be fixed by individual disabled people so I think the timing worked out rather well.

Is the report viewable by us benighted Americans, as well?

I bet I'll learn something tactically useful.
