Granada Reports

Hi, i don't post on forums very often as i am not a very talkative person due to me having social anxiety disorder but when i watched Granada Reports last night it made my blood boil and i felt i had to share it with you.

This woman is on disability benefits and is on tv claiming that the benefit system is too generous!!
I care for my wife who is a wheelchair user, my wife is on DLA and i claim carers allowance and we just about get by and i know that there are thousands of disabled people and carers on benefits who struggle to make ends meet and yet here is someone complaining they get too much.
What message does send out? This report will just make people think that disabled people get loads of money from their benefits and that benefits should be cut even more, when in reality its the exact opposite.
