Tory Councillor Implies Jody McIntyre Is Lying About His Disability

December 14, 2010

Thanks to Liberal Conspiracy.

Ealing Councillor Phil Taylor implies that Jody McIntyre is lying about his disability:

McIntyre is not being particularly honest though. Although he presents himself as a cerebral palsy victim in a wheelchair he does not mention that by his own account he walked up the 9 stories of stairs of the 30 Millbank building during the student riots of 10th November.

Phil Taylor adds:

The police are entitled I think to start pushing and shoving when hostile and potentially violent protestors will not move out of their way. McIntyre is using his disability as a stick to beat the police with.


As Sunny rightly says, Phil Taylor does not consider how long Jody McIntyre took to climb the stairs, or that he had support from friends and a rail.

I am shocked by Phil Taylor’s attitude. I have Cerebral Palsy. I can walk up stairs with support. I also use a wheelchair in crowds the size of ones at protests. This does not mean I am not disabled. And to say the police are entitled to push and shove- don’t get me started.

    Evidently, Mr. Taylor is an idiot, and is a part of what is going wrong with this country.
