Britain on Benefits: Channel 4 Dispatches

Tomorrow on Channel 4 from 8:00pm to 8:30pm

The Government is planning to stop giving Disability Living Allowance to more than half a million current claimants across the nation. Wheelchair basketball ace Ade Adepitan investigates what this will mean for those who will no longer receive it, and hears the opinions of disabled army veterans, workers and fellow Paralympians.

I thought it was a missed opportunity when none of our Paralympic athletes staged a protest on the podium, particularly as Atos were sponsoring the games. It could have been our “Tommie Smith” moment.

Great minds think alike…

(both on ‘Tommie Smith moment’ & posting about Dispatches!)
