MS Patient Margaret Lynch Confronts Cameron And Clegg On Cuts

October 25, 2010

A 52-year-old Multiple Sclerosis sufferer from Derbyshire, Margaret Lynch, accused David Cameron and Nick Clegg of “picking on the weakest” by cutting benefits for the vulnerable.

The Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister met voters in a rare public appearance together at a secondary school in Nottinghamshire to explain the cuts which were announced in the Comprehensive Spending Review on Wednesday.

The pair had come under pressure from Margaret Lynch, a 52-year-old Multiple Sclerosis sufferer from Derbyshire, who accused them of “picking on the weakest” by cutting benefits for the vulnerable.

She said: “You are really picking on the weakest people in society and it is completely unfair how you have applied the budget cuts.”

Mr Clegg replied: “The package is much more balanced and more fair than is presently being alleged.”
