Cruellest cut

• When I read the Irish Independent on Tuesday, December 6, I was in shock, as I'm sure was everyone in the country who experiences disability in their families.

Michael Noonan, when I spoke to him personally last year, expressed his disapproval of last year's cuts imposed by Fianna Fail within the disability spectrum and assured me that if elected to office he would reverse that party's disability cuts.

Not only has he broken his promise but he -- blaming Joan Burton -- targeted the most vulnerable with these most savage cuts to disabled youngsters.
