I seem to have heard yesterday, that this person as "apologised unreservedly" about his remark, not only that, but another MP as also recently "apologised unreservedly" for making a similar remark about low pay for some people of the community.
It just goes to show, how far out of touch some of these rather arrogant people are with the people they are suppose to represent.
"I thought we were getting to an age were people are treated equal irrespective of their ability to preform certain tasks."
Show me were that applies, because there is still an awful lot of discrimination about, and not only for disabled people, or people who regard they are a very special case, because they class themselves as disabled.
The government have a large amount of work to do on this subject, yet at times, those that are suppose to help, seem to ignore the fact because of the usual "lack of funding and/or resources" that is often churned out.
