A question. What is the covenant between society and people with severe and enduring disability? What was it under the Welfare State and what has it been reduced to by the recent Welfare Reform Bills?
People with disability don’t know the answer. They know that their only income is being threatened and they feel that they have no way of protecting themselves. They are terrified. How does the rest of society – those currently fit and well – feel about this? It is being done in their name.
