Disability pays

•I am disgusted with Mary Davis for riding the coat-tails of events like the Special Olympics, stressing how hard she has worked at "disabled" causes, while earning herself a huge salary. Such people really tick me off.

I do not consider people like that as advocates. I am a wheelchair user myself, and am very conscious of the "disability industry", but never realised just how lucrative it was.

It would take most people who would qualify for the Special Olympics a couple of years to earn just 10pc of her salary.
