Just watched it and found it to be absolutely pathetic a complete waste of time. Theresa May couldn't have staged it better, it's like something I could imagine IDS scripting pure utter propaganda. The idea that anyone would vote for the Tories after what has been done to so many disabled people surviving on disability benefits is unbelievable and yet within a matter of moments we hear two women virtually singing the praises of May. And almost as predictable of snow in winter the last person contributing to the discussion makes some real life comments just before Victoria, in a QT Dimbleby fashion, turns to the viewers as she thanks those at the studio table before going on to the next item on the program's schedule.

Pathetic!

It was an intensely depressing 'debate', from the introduction that framed disability issues in terms of economic activity, to the number of Tory voters on the panel.  It was also a bit of a shock, given that Victoria Derbyshire's programme has a reasonable track record when it comes to highlighting the impact of cuts to benefits and services for disabled people.

It was the BBC's token referral to welfare, I expect we'll hear, within a matter of hours before the ending of televised discussion of the GE due to the beginning of voting, announcements about Tory welfare decimation policies.
