In the week when government ministers have lost no opportunity to praise our paralympians
the May government announces that it must make "efficiency savings" by cutting funding to disability-supported housing. While our elite athletes are supported by lottery grants and public facilities, those disabled who are not stars are expected to fend for themselves. It is symptomatic of the Conservatives "to him that hath, it shall be given" ethos, which has also inspired Mrs May's attempt to turn the clock back on secondary education in England.
