The case for DLA reform is shaky

Beyond misuse of statistics, sloppy presentation of data and lack of evidence, there are further points to be queried.

In a well-argued post on Benefit Scrounging Scum, Rhydian Fôn James has highlighted several major issues with the government’s methodology in making the case for DLA reform.

It’s a great read, and required for anyone who believes in evidence-based policy and disability equality.

(For anyone interested in the issues with the case the government has constructed with their dodgy methods, I modestly offer my post on DLA reforms.)
