    Here’s a Crazy Story…

    You’ve heard of ‘Mickey Mouse degrees’ like –
    Media studies
    Golf management
    Psychology
    Surf science

    Here’s an hilarious one – “Disability Studies”

    Leeds University has a whole “Centre for Disability Studies” –
    Even a website –
    https://disability-studies.leeds.ac.uk/

    Jam packed with Quackademics –
    Here’s THIRTY SIX of them –
    https://disability-studies.leeds.ac.uk/people/

    With garbage ‘job’ titles like –

    PROFESSOR OF LAW AND SOCIAL JUSTICE
    LECTURER IN SOCIAL THEORY
    LECTURER IN DISABILITY LAW
    ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR IN MEDICAL PSYCHOLOGY (calls itself “Doctor”)
    LECTURER IN DISABILITY AND CRIME
    PROFESSOR OF LAW AND SOCIAL JUSTICE
    ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF SOCIAL POLICY, SOCIOLOGY, DISABILITY STUDIES AND CRIME
    CHAIR IN DISABILITY LAW

    I searched and searched their site for “Work Capability Assessment” and “WCA”… with their ‘search’ and Google.. but I could only find ONE result. ONLY ONE…

    and here it is –

    Not a ‘study’ or a ‘report’ or anything like that… just on one of the quackademics profiles –
    https://essl.leeds.ac.uk/sociology/pgr/506/rosa-morris

    Two whole paragraphs –

    “There is increasing, ****mainly anecdotal, evidence***** that there is a significant gap between disabled people’s actual experiences of how impairment and/or illness affects their ability to work, and the implementation of the Work Capability Assessment. ”

    Well no fuc*ing sh*t… Does it also suspect that bears might sh*t in the woods?

    “I have both direct and indirect experience of this contrast. This is an urgent issue which needs full examination, particularly in the light of the major impact that the result of a WCA can have on a disabled person’s life.”

    So when is it and it’s University going to call the Police???

    “My personal interest in this area of work is also driven by my understanding of the social model of disability and how the application of this way of approaching impairment can bring about improvements to disabled people’s lives.”

    Total Quackademic Pseudoscience Garbage. “It’s all you fault” or “It’s all their fault” BS.

    “The contrast with the approach of the WCA seems very stark. I believe there is enormous scope for critiquing the theory on which the WCA and its criteria are based.”

    Well no fuc*ing sh*t… Go on then… waiting…. still waiting…….

    “Disability Studies” yeah….. right.
