I was interviewed a couple of weeks ago by Ian Hamilton, for a programme covering issues on disability in the referendum, or the lack of them. It was broadcast as “The Investigation: One million vote”. As the programme went out on Radio Scotland yesterday morning at 5 am, I doubt you’ll have heard it, but it’s on iplayer for the week. Ian was asking whether the referendum would be swayed by the concerns of people with disabilities. I expressed doubts about that: as fully three-quarters of people with disabilities don’t identify themselves as being disabled, it’s hard to mobilise people around the issues. There is no ‘disability vote’. But disability should be seen as a central issue in social protection; many of us will be touched by disability, whether we become disabled ourselves or whether it will be someone we care for.
