The collective failure of disability and deaf groups to offer united opposition is bad. I can remember when Thatcher declared war on the poor and vulnerable, but Cameron is looking to go one better. His despicable backing off of Banker greed, despite US having to bail them out, was another example of class warfare and institutionalist human rights abuse of disabled people in real time.

What it amounts to is 'house arrest' of the elderly and putting disabled back in to institutionalism... even the Victorians saw inequality and unfairness in that. It's all our fault for being deaf or disabled...
