*Waves at all the #ESAendgame people blushes a little there are so many, clears throat*
So, most of the public don't have a clue what ESA or WCAs are. For the next few weeks we need to dig out and share some of the best ESA stories or TV programmes or radio debates we remember and share them around. Everywhere.
Please post your favourite links in the comment thread. **IF LINK IS LONG PLEASE INDICATE WHERE IN ARTICLE INFO IS**

Here's a few tips :
-Always use the full Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) at first so people start to learn what it is. Same with WCAs
-Remember a particualar time Graying got shown for the liar he is?
-Remember punching the air when the Mail or Telegraph or somewhere actually wrote something fair about ESA?
-Remember a statistic that literally blew your head off?
-Remember the first time you read something so clear, a huge penny dropped?
-Dig them out and share share share. At work, online, on twitter
-Be prepared to be patient at first if people ask questions. They almost certainly won't be very sympathetic at first, but that's what they've been told, most people aren't unkind.
-Absolutely never rise to trolls under any circumstances. Stay polite and informative.
We need people to really start thinking about ESA, understanding what it is and what we're actually so afraid of and cross about. Print some off and scatter them round at work, in the hairdresser, on noticeboards - nothing is silly.
Time to fightback with facts!!!!
