Some 'disabled' should get work
HAVING read the article (May 14) regarding disability allowances being paid in the city, I feel I must comment.
I agree and accept that there are genuine recipients and genuine cases whereby the disability allowance is paid, and rightly so. However, one has only to go into the city centre on any given weekday (I work shifts), to see a large amount of people who are not working. God forbid anyone loses limbs etc, but even a person with one leg could work in an office or behind a till. I know I would. In my place of work until recently we had a female who was blind and took her dog to work, and a male who walks with the aid of crutches. These people are shining examples of what we can achieve. One night shift a few months ago, I stopped and talked to two young males walking to an all- night garage and asked in general conversation if they had work in the morning. I was told: "Oh no, we are off work disabled. I've got Tourette syndrome". I left to carry on with my second nightshift of the four.
There are genuine cases where people cannot work, but also is it a case of some doctors being hoodwinked or being too soft to "sign off" these people who can?
