DWP ‘encouraging’ wheelchair users to work as shopping trolleys

Wheelchairs users could replace shopping trolleys as part of a new government Trolley-for-Lolly work programme.

More than half a million disabled people face losing up to £150 a week under new benefit cuts as the government attempts to lift claimants out of benefits and under the wheels of a bus.

The minister against disabled people, Justin Tomlinson, said: “The cuts will ensure that people who need the most help, such as those with large inheritances, are properly targeted.

“The Trolley-for-Lolly scheme will restore dignity to wheelchair users and potentially provide an extra pair of arms to shoppers.”

The Department for Work and Pensions have pointed to a wealth of fact-free evidence detailing the gratitude that non-existent claimants feel, for illustrative purposes only.

“John from Melchester was delighted when we removed his benefits because it gave him the motivation he needed to turn his life around,” insisted a spokesperson.

“Within a fortnight he’d regained his eyesight and secured a six-figure salary working in adventuring.

“He also does space exploring with a team of fashion models on weekends.

“It’s all about thinking positively.”
