Daybreak's Nick Dixon spoke to people using Magor Services on the M4 near Newport this morning, to hear what they thought about George Osborne's official car using a disabled parking bay there.
They told him "I don't think it's fair - the spaces are there for a reason", and they have no sympathy for the Chancellor - he "should know better."
A senior Conservative source told the Press Association that Mr Osborne's vehicle had reversed into the disabled bay while he was inside the service station, and that he did "not condone this in any way."
The disability charity Scope told the Daily Mirror that the incident where George Osborne's official car was parked in a disabled parking bay at M4 services in South Wales “shows how wildly out of touch the Chancellor is with disabled people in the UK”.
They will see this as rubbing salt in their wounds.
Many are already struggling to make ends meet, yet the Chancellor’s response has been to cut vital financial support and squeeze local care budgets.
This picture tells you everything about George Osborne’s toxic attitude to benefits.
He talks about a broken system abused by scroungers – but has chosen to take advantage of it himself.
– Richard Hawkes, chief executive of the disability charity Scope
