It’s bad enough with the Department for Work and Pensions persecuting the sick and disabled; we don’t need companies like Ryanair taking up the hate campaign.

But that is exactly what will happen, as long as ‘scrounger’ rhetoric is allowed to be published and broadcast indiscriminately.

As for Ryanair’s denial – they would, wouldn’t they?

A dad who had both legs amputated claims he was told to CRAWL to a plane by staff working for Ryanair.

Matthew Parkes, 38, says he was instructed by gate staff to drag himself down two ramps, a set of stairs, across tarmac and up the steps of the Manchester -bound plane.

When he refused, he says they carried him the full length of the plane on a stretcher chair – in front of hundreds of seated passengers.

Ryanair say Mr Parkes was provided with the correct assistance for a passenger with reduced mobility and said ‘as far as they can tell there is no truth to the claims’.
