Hundreds of disabled protesters will target Clegg trip to Scotland

 

THE Scottish Liberal Democrats are facing a public relations disaster at their final gathering before the Holyrood election, with hundreds of disabled protesters planning to target an appearance by UK leader Nick Clegg.

Campaigners in wheelchairs are among those set to lobby the Deputy Prime Minister at the Perth LibDems’ conference next month in an attempt to shame him over UK Government cuts to lifeline allowances.

Party insiders fear the protest, against changes to the Disability Living Allowance, will worsen the LibDems’ decline in opinion polls.

The Government is planning to scrap the mobility element of the allowance for all recipients in council residential care from October 2012.
