BBC News: Birmingham City Council acted unlawfully over a decision to reduce its provision of care for disabled people, High Court judges have said. The judgement has implications for local authorities in England and Wales. Thursday's ruling said local councils must abide by existing disability laws to eliminate discrimination. It said councils must take account of people's disabilities, even where that involves treating disabled persons more favourably than others. IMO this is a very good decision I am more than happy to see my taxes supporting people who are physically/mentally handicapped. If there is a shortage of cash government should cut the foreign aid budget and channel it to our own people who are in need.
