Disability is not a bonus.
GEORGE Tyndale once again labels the sick and disabled as scroungers, idlers and wasters. Of course the Government is using the vulnerable in our society as a tool to adjust its statistics.
We know that unemployment figures are fudged and that the number of real jobs in the economy is falling.
For years we have seen the manufacturing industries eroded by weak employment laws and bosses plundering pension funds to build factories in cheap labour countries.
But this isn't the fault of the sick and they shouldn't be used as the whipping boy.
Being disabled isn't a bonus. No-one would swap a job for a wheelchair.
S T VAUGHAN, Yardley Wood
