A spokesman for disabled charity Scope described Cllr Collin Brewer's outburst as "outrageous".
Comments such as this have absolutely no place in modern society and should be consigned to the history books.
To hear such an ill-judged and insensitive statement from a councillor is deeply disturbing and demonstrates that they are clearly not fit for office.
Sadly hostility such as this is not uncommon for many disabled people and it is thoughtless comments like this that make it even harder for them to overcome the multiple barriers they face and live their lives just like everyone else.
