There was another one that defended an article that said disabled people should be paid less because they should be happy for the opportunity to work and they don't understand the value of money.

I don't know if she was voted in.

Update...

Yes. She was elected.

Went to the polling station to vote today. Very quiet, and, strangely, a lot of school kids there.

Denmark have said today they want access to UK fishing waters in the UK-EU trade negotiations. BJ wants a quick deal, will he roll over (as he did with the border in the Irish sea)?

Having chosen to go it alone, we're about to become the junior partner in a negotiation with the EU and the junior partner in a negotiation with the US.  And Japan.  And Russia.  And China, probably.  We're about to become everyone's bitch.  #takingbackcontrol

Another one said that people that need food banks should be more careful with their money, and that they should consider getting a payday loan if they are struggling.

I don't know if he was voted in. But he was tory.

Wasnít Mr. Tomlinson was it?

JT's line is that they should take in a lodger.... he might have recommended the lodger using Wonga, other payday loans are available.

I'm not sure you are quite quoting it correctly, it related to a sub set of disabled people.  People with learning difficulities, at the minute some won't have the opporunity to work (as they are competing with people who don't have LD), however they still contribute by volunteering etc.

But if you reduce the cost of employing people with LD's then they would be more likely to be employed.  Whether in practice it would work... I'm not sure.

I did not vote for the tories but I understand the point being raised, rather than just the headline.

She argued that some people with disabilities should be paid less for the reasons given. That is what she said.

That is fucked up. Very, very fucked up.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Jo Swinson yet

No reason too. She must have still been smoking those Caribbean rizlas to think she was going to get 300+ seats to be PM or anything meaningful to cozy up to another party to power share on a ticket of two fingers up to 17.4 million voters with no redress. Iím also surprised no one ever mentioned that there must have been Lib Demís who voted Brexit. Equally Lib Demís who shuddered at the prospect of Corbyn in No.10, tactical voting can work in more ways than was being espoused in the run up.

That was the tip of a humongous iceberg but well put.
