Peter Oborne attacked Disability Living Allowance in The Telegraph today, saying
“On Monday, the disability living allowance – for so long a charter for deceit and recipe for state-sponsored idleness – will be replaced by a far more humane and realistic system.”
Apart from ignoring the DWP’s own fraud statistics for DLA, (0.5%) Oborne clearly has no idea what DLA is. DLA pays two components – Care, and Mobility. For the most part people spend it on those two things. I asked my followers on Twitter what they spend it on.
