BBC – Ouch! (disability) – Opinion – Disability Bitch – Disability Bitch vs blind people.

I have to say I would have to agree with Disability Bitch on this one, I don’t get what RNIB sees to gain by telling the world that blind people are a bigger drain on the econermy than many other disabled people.

It worries me take stats like that the wrong way and anything can happen, I worry it will open the doors to all kinds of discrimination and service cuts in many areas that are stretched already!

The country is facing economic depression – simple cure kill off all the blind people and it will all be fine. I seriously hope not, but look at history it has happened before.

  1. Although I don’t necessarily agree with disabitch, what seems most relevant to me is that of the six billion that the RNIB report says blindness costs per year, only a tiny proportion of it is actually going to the blind people themselves. 6 billion divided by 2 million is 3 grand per year, each! And I don’t know ANYONE who is getting that.

    Ironically the one organisation cashing in on blind people the most seems to be the one who made the report!…

    One friend of mine has always claimed that the “R”, the “N” and the “I” stand for Really Not Interested!
    However with 3 grand a year per blink to be made, they clearly ARE interested. Not to put too fine a point on it, it is an effing RIPOFF!

    Take care & keep up the great blog work.
