A short rant on equality, you make your own mind up.
After yesterdays announcement of the Tories £1.5+ BILLION gift to DUP for Votes, today we learn disabled patients requiring a wheelchair are essentially reliant upon begging. It transpires disabled people unable to afford and needing, an alternative to the NHS 44lb wheelchair, is being forced to raise their own funds to purchase suitable equipment.
The wheelchairs available from the NHS is not only unwieldy but “manoeuvring the devices risks causing damage” , however the price of a suitable chair can cost Thousands. Given that disabled people have already been hardest hit by the plethora of Cuts, in particular by vast array of issues experienced during those transferring from DLA to PIP it seems fair to assume many of the 13 million people in UK can not afford the potential £10,000.
It appears that if you’re a DUP MP, you’re worth £100 Million, but if you’re a disabled citizen your value is reduced to £50.00; where is the fairness, or parity in that?
