I was asked to write an article on the news that the number of people claiming Disability Living Allowance in Northern Ireland is soaring at a time when it is falling elsewhere in the UK. You can have a read of it here, if you fancy. I was intrigued by the comments underneath my article. You will see some people agree with me whilst those who differ hope I get cancer. That’s nice.
I guess the main point I wanted to make was that this sort of Benefit must be closely scrutinised before it is handed over to claimants. The second point is that the core areas of support for Sinn Fein coincide with the major areas of DLA claim. This is why they refuse to countenance any change to Welfare and will edge the country closer to the cliff edge in order to ensure the parasites can drain the UK taxpayer.
