    Listened to this. It is at the time of the Hardest Hit march.

    One person is worried about the return of the “Long Stay Hospital” for
    disabled people who with these cuts will not be able to live independently.

    A real Einstein explains the statistics of why this is all necessary and things like
    “cost benefit analysis” that the average person would not be aware of. It is not
    about people then ?

    Then the memorable statement that DLA is going to the wrong sort of people.

    "Even if you are not paranoid, it does not mean they are not out to get you!".
