The EU referendum campaign so far has been more about politicians than about people. But what about the impact of leaving the EU for Britain’s 10 million people with disabilities?What indeed? And what about the impact of leaving the EU for Britain’s gingers, or trainspotters, or Toby Jug collectors?
People with disabilities will always campaign to pull down barriers, not erect new ones.Really? Funny how they have demanded immediate access to interviews for jobs then, and disabled-only spots in car parks. Which is a barrier to everyone else, by any definition!
In all the talk of “free movement” in Europe, what about the right of a British wheelchair user to take a holiday or visit abroad?Wait, what? Would a standalone Britain adopt a position of ‘no foreign travel for cripples’ then?
Being part of Europe is a safeguard against British governments of all political colours removing disability rights.This is just more hysterical scaremongering nonsense. What this cretin is demanding is that people with disabilities should vote a particular way because their disability is the deciding factor.
That they might see Brexit as a good thing overall for themselves and their children, despite the possible (and highly improbable!) negatives is irrelevant.
