Philip Davies, the Conservative MP for Shipley, suggests that disabled people should work for less than the minimum wage. I presume it applies to people with Asperger syndrome just as much as it applies to people with traditional physical disabilities.

Mr Davies said: “If an employer is looking at two candidates, one who has got disabilities and one who hasn't, and they have got to pay them both the same rate, I invite you to guess which one the employer is more likely to take on."

Absolutely outrageous. If the Tories had any decency then they would depose Davies in the same way they deposed Powell after he read his "Rivers of Blood" speech.
