Quote:
A Conservative MP has suggested "vulnerable" jobseekers - including disabled people - should be allowed to work for less than the minimum wage.

Backbencher Philip Davies said the 5.93-an-hour legal minimum may be a "hindrance" to some jobseekers.

It's opened a debate, but it will have a backlash. Everyone whether disabled or not should be given a fair deal. Disabled people shouldn't be punished for this. Seems people who earn thousands as an MP are lookIing down on them. I'am glad he's able to walk and feed himself. Even do everyday duties when those disabled people can't. Remember some are very bright, even if they may look stupid in a wheel chair or don't look right.....

It seems to me that he's just being a typical nasty tory. They haven't learned a thing or changed one iota even after more than ten years in opposition.
