Don’t treat disabled harshly

PUBLISHED: 16:56 06 April 2011

THE new benefit interviews for the disabled have been tried out in Burnley, Lancashire.

Some of the seriously disabled claimants have spoken out about the harsh nature of the repetitive interviews.

If we treat disabled people harshly, that will stain our civilisation.

The aforementioned trials are set to be rolled out all over the country.

David Cameron needs to bring some humanity into the changes to the benefit system.

And Vince Cable should see that he does. – Max Nottingham, Lincoln.
