Ok lets get straight to it. I don’t agree with everything Henry Stands for & it’s not very often you will hear me Defending an MP. But on this occasion I had to ask the man & he gave me a direct reply. Is it the truth that you get a lobbying fee of £1300 an hour? He replied that this is false & he’s taking legal action, on that, only time will tell.  But these images have been all over Twitter for the last few months & I can sympathise with the message, but a journalist has to get the facts & in this case the statement is, as far as I can tell just not true. Disabled people should not be losing £30 per week but if these campaigns are going to keep going they have to deal with facts to maintain credibility.

All this image does is damage that credibility.
