My fault, that was the maximum categories the forum would allow. With hindsight maybe I should have added in the word partner Image Image

In receipt of DLA?

Eun
Garn! Thats a bit like defining Carers as folk in receipt of Carers Allowance. Only 10% of carers get it, for all kinds of reasons I wont go into here.
(OK, I'll give you a wee hint: my Dad is 90 years old, he is disabled, and he is a carer for my Mum who does receive DLA, and yet he doesn't receive DLA himself ..... because he didn't become disabled until a mere 20 years ago and he worked until he was 65 .... so neither of them receive Carers allowance either !)

The Welfare State isnt the solution: it's the problem.
