Dear Tanya,

Thank you for your mail, correcting me at some length.

I will forward it to the DWP for their comments and am happy to change my views if they agree with you.

You end by saying: "Finally I would ask you to desist from calling disabled people 'The disabled'. Not only is it grammatically incorrect, it is also dehumanising".

I have just come home after spending the last six hours at a Jobs Fair that I organised at the Glos Deaf Association with a specific aim of helping to find work opportunities for people with disabilities.

As far as I know this is the first time such a Jobs Fair has been organised in the city and county.

I do this because I think it matters - and so do the various charities and organisations I worked with.

Rather than trying to score politically correct points about using 'the disabled' as shorthand in blackberry e mailing, come and help do something positive.

What have you done to help find people with disabilities jobs and how would you like to help me and others do so?

With regards Richard

Sunshine
