Ouch's fearsome Bitch eats famous disabled people for breakfast. And then spits them out again. She tackles other controversial disability topics with all the subtlety of a hammer cracking a nut. Don't say we didn't warn you!
Disability Bitch hates sunshine
4th June 2009
3. A 'politician' I am not allowed to name or link to because it is polling day today and I might prejudice his chances, has declared that "there is not a lot of point" in keeping some disabled people alive.
5. A disabled man has been told that he can only spend £200 on a bed from the public purse, even though MPs are allowed to spend £1000 each.
Despite all this stomach-churningly awful cripple-based news, it would appear - inexplicably - that the rest of the country is in a deliriously good mood this week. Why?
• Second, it's too bright. I'm reliably informed that blind people hate light. They wear dark glasses, not to hide their hideously deformed eyes, but to protect them from the incoming sunlight. They hate summer, blind people. It makes them more blind. Or something.
• Fourth, swelling. My joints swell in the heat. My ankles swell in the heat. It's something to do with having crap circulation. I don't understand it, but I am just one big swollen ball of Bitch when the sun is out. So swollen that not even Ibuprofen can cure me and I am unable to walk anywhere. That's UN-able - as in 'don't see the ability, see the agony'.
