Letter: Blow to disabled

Sir: As both my wife and I have cerebral palsy and are in receipt of certain benefits we are a little worried about the Govern-ment's Welfare Reform Bill. I can only assume that this Bill is Trea-sury led.

No one chooses to be disabled. Yes, it costs the country money, increasing mounts of money, but we can't help that. It's costs us our lives, for sometimes I have looked upon my life as a prison sentence without parole.

And I note governments are always willing to spend on defence; the trouble is, weapons disable.
