LETTER: What is Osborne thinking taking money off the disabled?

What on earth is George Osborne thinking of?

Taking money off people with disabilities rankles with every healthy individual, either Labour or Conservative.

To fill the black hole he says has engulfed his policies, the answer is clear and easy to implement. Increase the fuel tax by at least 5p per litre.

The price of oil has dropped to around 40 dollars per barrel. Our cars are far more economical than they were even four years ago. Everybody pays and when oil rises again, the duty can be eased back down. It is simple and easy to implement. Come back down to earth, Mr Osborne, before you destroy our party.
