Public Go Back To Ignoring Plight Of Carers & People With Disabilities


BECOMING the focal point of debate during the recent referendums amid greater visibility and temporary-media interest, Ireland’s carers and disabled citizens have been told not to get used to the support and advocacy as the voting public consider their bit ‘done’.

“Woah now, when I said the government needs to do more I didn’t mean that would involve me giving you lot another thought,” confirmed one person, who thought the government should move heaven and earth for carers in ways that didn’t involve investment through taxation.

The public warned that advocacy groups and marginalised people who may be feeling the wind beneath their sails and a sense of support that has been absent for years must appreciate the public’s enthusiasm has an expiry date of ‘moments after casting my vote’.

“I didn’t vote at all on Friday, what more do you want?” said one business owner, who spent much of last year tirelessly researching loopholes in regulations which would get him out of improving accessibility on his premises.

“Ask me to watch a few viral TikToks on the subject, grand, that I can do. But to be part of meaningful change? C’mon, be realistic,” confirmed another person, who wouldn’t have put ‘ally’ in her social media bios if she knew it had to mean something.

Elsewhere, one local man who went horse from telling people to vote no on the basis of the need for enhanced supports and access for disabled people has already reverted back to calling anyone receiving disability payments ‘workshy scammers’.
