He’s back!

Just when you’ve all been lulled into a false sense of security and felt able to visit this blog section without the need for extra double-gusset strength protection, I’m afraid I have to break the news to you that … I’m back!

Described by one of my editors as ‘that old curmudgeon’ – A crusty irascible cantankerous old person full of stubborn ideas – I’ve left my bed of pain and incontinence and have once again picked up my pen ready to do battle on behalf of crips everywhere.

One thing I have noticed is that more and more non-disabled people, especially members of the Coalition, are joining the ranks of those who seem to enjoy giving us all a good kicking. What with companies taking contracts away from groups and organisations of disabled people (A4e), newspapers painting us all as benefits scroungers, Lansley wrecking our NHS, and the rest of the government dismantling what protective legislation that we did have and slowly but surely pushing us back towards the work house.

Plenty of material for me to get my teeth into then … watch this space!

Note: Crippen has also reopened his blog on the Disability Arts on Line web site. Click here to view. There’s also a new Flickr site where you can see about 200 of Crippen cartoons – Click here to view that. And if you’re a real masochist, you can visit his Facebook page by clicking here.
