Disabled Soldier Loses Benefit

OK, let me get this right, a soldier fighting for his country loses his leg and bDisabled soldier imageecause he can now walk with the ‘aid’ of a prosthetic limb he cannot claim disability benefit.

What is our country coming too, benefits can be claimed if a person has a limp and able to walk 5 miles with a stick because a stick is classed as an aid but a prosthetic limb is not classed as an aid.

OK, lets take the soldiers prosthetic limb away from him and see if he can walk unaided, of course he won’t be able to, his prosthetic limb is an AID, that AIDS him to walk!

We need a serious shake up of the benefits system in the UK and giving disability benefits to those that are actually ‘disabled’ might just be a start!
