This’ll prove that the Tory government has used the Covid-19 crisis to eliminate people with disabilities, then.

The list of people who were defined as “clinically vulnerable” by the government was deliberately written to omit people with many life-inhibiting disabilities.

As a result – well, read it for yourself:

A disabled man starved to death during the coronavirus lockdown because he could not access essential food, an MP said.

Labour MP Bell Ribeiro-Addy said she was aware of a “tragic” report that a man in her constituency of Streatham, south London, had died after being unable to access food essentials.

She asked charities giving evidence to the Women and Equalities Committee what they felt about the Government’s “reluctance” to expand the clinically vulnerable list amid people with disabilities struggling to get food through priority delivery slots.

They said people are still finding it hard to get deliveries, some cannot socially isolate in supermarkets because they are blind, carers are being disbelieved when they say they are shopping for more than one person and customers are being asked to “prove” their disability.

That’s right – the Tories deliberately ensured that people with disabilities would not be able to access food.

This Site’s long-term friend Samuel Miller had it right when he tweeted:

Anyone who voted for the Tories is complicit in these deaths.

Blood on their hands.
