BRITAIN’S middle classes have said that getting disabled people’s money is nice but they would also like their parking spaces if possible.
The £1.2 billion cut in disability benefits, spent on a tax cut for middle-class households, has the better-off hoping it is just the start.
Helen Archer of Reading said: “You should see how far I’m parked from Waitrose some days, while their spaces are all empty.
“And now they’ve got even less money — thank you for that by the way, we’re thinking a summerhouse — there’s even less point in them having pride of place.
“They could paint a symbol of perhaps a woman with a purse and money on it, to show those spots are reserved for people of means.”
She added: “Also my son Seth would like to play wheelchair basketball but he hasn’t got a wheelchair. And a lot of them don’t really need them.”
