I am Spartacus and I.....

Responsible Reform was a report put together by literally thousands. If you helped in ANY way, no matter how small, please leave a comment below starting

"I AM SPARTACUS AND I.........

You might have donated £5 to our fund, perhaps you always RTd our articles. Some will have stuffed envelopes, others wrote pieces. Scores of you researched, volunteers popped up from everywhere offering to do even the most obscure or mundane tasks for us.

Did you write to your MP? Email a peer? take part in one of our campaigns of send me a link to what may have ended up being vital research? Did you live tweet #teamwrb? Did you make a point of always sharing my links on Facebook?

So for tomorrow and next week when we have time to reflect, let's leave a record of exactly who made this happen and what they did

I hope we end up with hundreds of comments. xxxx

  34. Thank you Sue Marsh - let's continue this battle, with more voices. I'm one of them.

    I am Spartacus... and I did the following:

    1. I donated to help fund the report
    2. I tweeted and Re-tweeted #spartacusreport stories on Twitter
    3. I'm reposting stories on my Facebook profile
    4. I'm tweeting to MP's and Celebs about this report

    and...

    From today, I launched my own micro-website, to discus and display my own research into the DW&P, JobCentre Plus, ATOS in how they effect people, like me with long-term disability's.... find it here:

    http://dwpstories.blogspot.com/

    and watch this space, as I have more stories to post on this blog, about the DW&P and the UK's Government. There's more SAD news I'm afraid.

    But together, we might just kick the DW&P (and other department's..) butts.

  59. I am Spartacus, I suffer from severe ME, hyermobility syndrome, borderline personality disorder and a host of other co-morbid chronic conditions. I use my Facebook and twitter to post and repost for the cause, I (try to) educate those in my (limited/non-disabled) social circle. I have contacted disabled advocacy services such as CAB and many charities. I try to correct the misinformation circulated about the proposals by the media and politicians. I badger the Minister against disabled people- Maria Miller everytime she shows yet further ignorance. I take time to thatnk those celebrities/people with clout that support us.

  61. I am Spartacus and I gave to the fund, sent the report and press release to my MP as a constituency rep, and commented in the Guardian on the report. Well done Sue, Kaliya and everybody else who has put so much into this.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am Spartacus. I saw the message on the right side of this blog suggesting that Jon Snow may be talking about the report on his news programme. The trouble is that unless you get featured on a rolling news service like Sky or BBC News 24 on "Normal" tv nost of the news programmes are full of soundbites and very little detail.

    So unless you get on Newsnight or a programme that gives a longer amount of time to some stories there are not many places you can turn to.

    Radio probably works best and I suppose Radio 4 and Radio 5 are the places to go. After the terrible documentary John Humphries did on TV on the benefit system I wonder how he would treat the report if he's on duty and it gets a mention on the Today programme.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I am Spartacus and I donated to the research fund, emailed my MP and sent a hard copy of the report by post. I'm still tweeting links to the report and RTing responses to it as well as bugging various journalists and news agencies to cover the story by sending them copies of the press release.

  91. Have contacted my Tory MP Peter Lilly.

    Sent out tweets via my political animal lobby, I was creative with the wording to cover both aspect. Reposted links to the Guridian Article with questions to why are other news media not covering the news report to: Sky, ITV, Independnet and tied with the BBC.

    I see the report as just the start, please do follow the advice the TUC gave an pick a Crossbencher or Lib Dem Lord to send a letter to saying why they must not allow the Welfare Bill to go through highlighting the report.

    You can do as many Lords as you like but do it quick as time is running.

    This very good site has email addresses whereas the LibDem site only has postal addresses.

    Finally, I would like to send a huge thank you to Sue and all those who have helped her put the report together & also to Left Foot Forward who made it possible for the report to be delivered by hand.

  99. I am not Spartacus. I am a very naughty boy.

    I am cancelling my licence fee to the BBC for being a corrupt government mouthpiece, and ignoring the biggest trending story all day.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I am spartacus and today I have sent 70 tweets and personal messages, emailed members of the Lords, MPs, members of the Socialist Health Assoc and the Fabians. I have also written several lobbying pieces on the needs and contributions of the disabled. I also organised a discussion for my CLP led by Disability Alliance and the local Disability Coalition. Disability can happen to anyone at any time - we should not be swept aside!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I am spartacus (on my mum's behalf) and twittered.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I am Spartacus and I have been Tweeting reasons why I support #spartacusreport all day. I also published a #spartacusreport limerick on Twitter earlier.

    For those who missed it...
    When we first Tweeted #spartacusreport,
    No-one would ever have thought,
    It would Top Trend all day,
    And fill Timelines - but Hey!
    Never sell Disabled people short!

    Also sent the report to my local MP for Bradford South, tweeted charities including TargetMD to gain their support for the cause.

    It's been a great day! Shame the TV media are too frightened to cover it.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I am spartacus and I sent tweets to all the House of Lords members on twitter, emailed my local MP, tweeted for an hour in the afternoon of 9/1/12 & tried to raise awareness with local media after national media failed to report on the issue.
    I did this because I have M.S and currently receive DLA, I am in the process of loosing my job due to my disability. I want to work, but am unable to work full-time. As long as I am in receipt of DLA I can look for a part time job and afford to remain in work, if DLA is stopped, I would be on full out of work benefits, becoming isolated and unhappy and probably more of a burden on the health system.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I am Spartacus and I had tweeted, Facebooked and emailed my MP. I will continue to do so until people listen and realise that this could be them. I only wish I could do more. What you are doing is amazing and I can only hope that your hard work and dedication will be rewarded with the right outcome.

  111. I am Spartacus, and I wrote to my MP and circulated the report to everyone I knew - including in the NHS and health professionals.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I am Spartacus, circulated to MP, local councillors, Bishops in the Lords and delighted to have contributed financially to this excellence.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I am Spartacus and I tweeted, donated and found a few addresses. I'm lucky enough not to need DLA due to recovery from a chronic illness after four years - recovery due at least in part to receiving incapacity benefit for some of that period - support I wouldn't be able to access if I fell ill now due to the changes made/proposed to ESA. My recovery also depended on plenty of rest and avoiding stress and would quite probably have been worsened by the stress current claimants are experiencing. As it is I'm now able to (and do) work - proof perhaps that we need a system that supports not punishes sick and disabled people.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I am Sparticus. I donated to the fund, I tweeted whenever I could @edwinmandella; e-mailed my MP (TRH Theresa May MP); asked Joey Barton, Stephen Fry, Jimmy Carr, Lord Sugar, Al Gore, Ricky Gervais, etc to retweet the call to battle and the link for the reports; I am scared and ready to fight!

  128. I am Spartacus - I tweeted links, emailed my MP, posted on facebook and other internet communities.

    I receive DLA - I am 31 and have a combination of health problems that result in me now being unable to care for myself much, nor walk meaningfully outdoors (I shuffle about round the house and from house to car with a stick). DLA means I can still work part time, I am self employed because the UK benefits system has NEVER supported me with my mental health problems - I had to find ways round that myself with no help.

    DLA means I have independance and can be a useful, productive member of society. Without it I am housebound and no use to anyone, let alone myself.

I am Sparticus and I took part in the consultation, regularly post and repost links and blogs on my profile and in groups on facebook, I have emailed Lords and bombarded my MP regardless of her replies and have written to the BBC to complain about distortion of facts on programmes about welfare benefits particularly disability benefits

  131. I am Spartacus and I donated, tweeted, Facebooked, G+d, emailed my MP and signed the petition (as did my partner).

    I have good health at the moment, work and pay taxes. I fully expect my taxes to be spent on supporting the health and wellbeing of all those who need it. I am more than disappointed that our governing parties have left such a basic principal behind.

I am a Sparatacus @WLPeople1st we tweeted and retweeted, emailed all the Wigan Mp's Andy Burnham, Lisa Nandy & Yvonne Fovargue and posted it on our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/wiganandleighpeoplefirst. Generally went on and on about it to anyone we spoke to today, managed to sneak it into the agenda of a meeting at our local involvement network this morning as well

  136. My constituency MP and his helpers are not amused by my challenging them about how this government, similar to the previous one, are treating disabled people.

    They have given full licence to all and sundry to vilify disabled people never mind the changes made in legislation. They have created a culture where abuse of disabled people is acceptable.

    This is tantamount to ethnic cleansing. My MP used to be the opposition MP for disabled people - funny that!

    Well done with this report. My concern is will it have any impact? My thoughts are that it won't. In a country where corruption is the only route to the top disabled people have a lot to learn .....

  138. I am Spartacus and I'm a constituency rep, I posted on my blog and have written to peers in the house of lords.

    Congratulations to Sue and everyone who helped with the report and other activities, a great triumph of achievement more particularly so considering the obstacles of illness and disability. Whatever the outcome at least we have had a voice and we have done the best we can

    “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead

    Best wishes to everyone

  139. I'm Spartacus and I have sent my MP a copy of the report via TheyWorkForYou.com because he doesn't publicise an email address, multiple posted about the report on Twitter and Facebook, added a link to the report on my blog frontpage and written a short post with link on Notts Indymedia.

    Congrats to everyone for getting the report together.

  142. I feel that this situation has worsened things. The pressure on claimants is so overwhelming and some of us are unable to cope!

  148. I'm Spartacus and I help the local Hands off our Homes campaign. Not affected by the Bedroom Tax myself but it really angers me to see so many desparate, scared people suffering so badly, many of them disabled themselves or with disabled relatives they are caring for.
    The petition is great but we need a way to get together in reality not just in the ether here.

    Calling for regional and national meetings is I hope one idea you or someone else out there will take up.
    We need to be able to see each other and stand literally shoulder to shoulder. It's the only way that the TV etc. will actually see us. At the moment, apart from the odd demo, we don't exist in the world of TV.
    The Poll Tax was brought down because it was visible.
    I'm Spartacus and proud of it.
