Disability spending soared by 33% under Labour.



The Daily Express is so right to highlight how disability spending soared by 33% under Labour and to say that "too many recipients were workshy scroungers."

This is backed up by re-assessment facts that continue to show how in each case at least half of the people trying to pocket incapacity handouts could hold down a job and how at least a third of those due to be re-assessed closed their claims down.

This is all the more reason why we need to continue with the re-assessment programme, continue clearing up the mess Labour left behind, and above all, stop the benefits trap blighting communities up and down the land by making it pay to work.
