Have your say

Horsham’s Derek McMillan quite rightly states (‘Disabled people being stigmatised’, letters, July 12): ‘It is wrongly claimed in Daily Mail headlines that benefit fraud is a major problem’.

And in Daily Express headlines like July 13’s front page:

‘Spongers can sue to claim benefits... Claiming benefits could become a human right’.
