Suddenly it makes sense. Lord Freud’s self-parodic comment about disabled people yesterday turns out to have been made specifically for the Daily Mail, an apparently longstanding arrangement that the paper has with the DWP in case of slow news days. In the event, it landed its own world exclusives about the eventual probability of UK interest rate rises and Princess Beatrice’s hat, but a contact at the Mail has let me have the original front page that it was going to run with until late last night.

I had to cancel an event for some of the disabled kids I work with last week as one of them had punched a hole in time itself. It seems impossible, but it tells you just how 'disabled' they are, when their strength rewrites our notions of physics and temporality on an almost fortnightly basis.
