What Do You Think, Mr Cameron?

October 1, 2010

Yesterday, Nadine Dorries MP decided benefit claimants shouldn’t use Twitter. The team over at Disability Voices were outraged. Team member Emma Crees summed our thoughts up very well here.

Then, this morning, Ms Dorries decided disabled benefit claimants couldn’t go down the pub, either. Cue another brilliant post by Emma at DV.

Well, I wasn’t planning to cover this incident here, since DV and mainstream blog Liberal Conspiracy have already given it so much fantastic coverage.

But then I read a tweet by @lilwatchergirl to @lisybabe saying: “It may be time to ask Conservative Party HQ and/or Cameron if they publicly distance themselves from her discriminatory comments.”

Regular readers of SD will know that David Cameron is not my favourite person. The reason for this is that I don’t agree with anything he says about disability issues. There are many examples on this blog of things he has said about disability issues and disabled people that I don’t agree with. A few too many to mention, in fact.

So I, for one, would love to know what Mr Cameron thinks of Ms Dorries’ comments. Knowing, and disliking, his record on disability issues as I do, however, I fear I wouldn’t like his answer.

    Why has Mr Cameron got such a problem with disabled people?
    After all his son was disabled and so was his father.

    Is it just the money the goverment pays to disabled people?

    Some of us are not so lucky to have been born with a silver spoon shoved in our mouths. Less than 1% of DLA claims are fraudulent so why pursue this!

    Absolute disgrace. By all means cut the deficit, but stop picking on the most vunerable of society!
