(not satire – it’s UK today)
This report shows how disabled people in the UK are being hit the hardest by government cuts:
A lot of able-bodied, fully healthy people switch off or turn away at the word ‘disabled’ – because they think the issue is of no concern to them.
And that’s exactly how the government has been able to get away with its vicious attacks on the weakest and most vulnerable members of society for so long. In fact, it’s the worse case of ‘Us‘ versus ‘Them‘ I’ve seen in a long time.
The fact is that disability affects all of us because every single one of us is going to be disabled eventually.
Of course, some people are born with a disability. But many more people have accidents or become sick sometime.
And we all become old.
People dying of cancer, for example, are not exempt from the government’s cuts:
The real question is – will you be able to afford to live as full a life as possible without any outside help when you become sick or have an accident or just get old?
Because the real ‘Us‘ versus ‘Them‘ isn’t able-bodied versus disabled.
It’s ‘rich enough to survive‘ versus ‘the rest of us‘.
Which one are you?
