David has chronic back pain, which led to him leaving his job with British Aerospace. He says, “I think we’ve lost all the progress we made in the last 30 years in terms of acceptance of disabled people.” He recounts walking with crutches past a pub in the middle of the day and receiving shouts of ‘We’re going to report you to the DWP,’ and says, “When there’s a bad article in the press, the next day you think, ‘Do I really need to go out of the house?’ We’re being forced back into the attic, locked away from society.”
