Farron:- "May doesn't understand the difference between mental health and learning disability"

May 16, 2017 2:03 PM

Responding to one of Theresa May's first intereactions of the campaign with a real voter, in which was confronted by a woman in Abingdon over cuts to disability benefits, Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron said:

"Theresa May has shown she just doesn't care about like Cathy who are seeing their benefits slashed and prices rise.

"Instead of addressing concerns over learning disabilities - she tried to change the subject to mental health.

"Theresa May isn't listening and taking people for granted.

"People don't have to settle for this cold, mean-spirited vision of Britain.

"A better future is available. The Liberal Democrats will stand up against a bad Brexit deal that will cost jobs and push up prices, and will reverse Conservative cuts to benefits for people not fit for work."
