Today is the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities, but I don't feel much like celebrating. There's been a great deal of talk and policy but I haven't really noticed much real progress. In fact, I feel tired, worried and stressed at the sheer hatred being stirred up against disabled people by, amongst others, Iain Duncan Smith, such as in the Sun and other places.
Duncan Smith's hate mongering has been soundly rebutted here, here and here.
So thanks to those people for putting the facts right.
Some "Christian" Duncan Smith is. It is the likes of him who make life threefold more difficult for disabled people. Thank goodness for friends who support and reassure us.
