If You Thought The Students Were Trouble, Wait For the Disability Movement, Says John McTernan

December 15, 2010

John McTernan has written a brilliant post today at the Telegraph blog. In it, he makes the very good point that disability rights campaigners are more trouble than students. He says Jody McIntyre’s interview with the BBC has shown the public that modern disability rights campaigners are ‘articulate and media savvy’ and that they are only just getting started on protesting at the benefit cuts that will directly affect their lives.

I agree with every word of his post. Being a disabled person, I know several Disability Rights campaigners both online and off, and I don’t think for a second that any of them will be slienced by fear. I’ve seen all my life that no one can fight battles like Disability Rights campaigners. So, Coalition government, if you thought we were an easy target, think again. In fact, Disabled People Against Cuts are protesting in Central London as I type!
