Conservative backbencher Philip Davies is one of those rare things – a really solid Conservative voice. Naturally the BBC loath him and so everything he says is subject to great scrutiny. Today has a go at him over allegations that he suggested disabled people are disadvantaged because of the minimum age and should accept a lower rate of pay than their able bodied colleagues, you can listen to it here. Davies is talking common sense and showing a sense of humanity towards disabled people. Of course any economist worth his salt will explain that the socialist construct of a Minimum Wage is harmful to the employment prospects of many people but through the prism of the BBC, the Minimum Wage is a good thing and there can be no negative consequences.
