Technical Difficulties – 10 May 2013

Today we feature an interview conducted by John Pring of Disability News Service with Cornwall Councillor Collin Brewer, who was recently re-elected to serve the Wadebridge East ward.

The full piece is available here: http://disabilitynewsservice.com/2013/05/colin-brewer-there-is-a-good-argument-for-killing-some-disabled-babies/

Cllr Brewer told Disability Cornwall in 2011 that disabled children should be “put down” because the money spent on them was better allocated to projects with a broader reach.

He resigned as a councillor in earlier this year but was re-elected last week.
