Ted's time has come

I am fast becoming a firm fan of Ted Shires. He's a comedian with cerebral palsy who frequently posts videos on Youtube. I agree with a lot of what he has to say. He's very funny and witty, but there's also a core of truth and a serious dissatisfaction with what is going on underlying many of his videos. It would seem he recently got a letter from the DWP about a PIP assessment, and he has posted his reaction to it here. He points out the stupidity of such assessments well: it's not as if the severity of conditions like CP changes, and surely conducting such ultimately pointless procedures must cost the authorities more than any possible savings. Shires makes these points and more in such a way, with such sarcasm and wit, that you can't help taking note. The guy is surely a rising star of the disability rights movement.
