    There is a huge storm brewing over Katie Price (Jordon) disabled blind child with Autism. People have been saying he is the biggest leech on society and that Katie Price should be the one who has to pay for his Taxi fares and healthcare.

    It costs £1000 to take Katie Price child to school and back per day. He needs a Nurse to give him injections because of his poor health.

    Think about this for a second. If we do not defend this disabled child then who is going to defend all the other disabled children? We have disabled children in poorer living conditions with similar needs. Are we just going to let the right-wing media cause a perfect storm to encourage the destruction of all the provision for disabled children?

    If state support is withdrawn from a high tax payer then what about all the non tax payers?

    But isn't it hypocritical of the public to suggest that this disabled child is such a drain when Chancellor George Osborne takes child benefit and David Cameron took Disability Living Allowance for his child in the past despite both of these Tories being millionaires.

    This is where we are. The battle lines have been drawn on national television and Katie Hopkins & the rest of her neo-liberalism cronies are roaring.

    £1000 a day transport cost? Is he in school in New York?

    I think the jist of the story is multi millionaire Jordan taking limited funding away from poorer families.

    Doesn't she pay like 40% Tax?? One side think's she deserves that because she pays that amount and probably more through tax.

    But then £1k each day ;o that's crazy!

    She pays her taxes the same as everyone else, a child's education and needs should not be assessed through means testing, every child with those needs should be offered the same treatment, regardless of their parents and their money.

    True after all David Cameron claimed DLA and George Osborne claimed Child Benefit but because Jordon (Katie Price) comes from a working class family there is all this rubbish aimed at her as being some sort of Scrounger.

    I wouldn't say she's a scrounger, but I would question why a multi millionaire is getting full whack payements.

    I'm still trying to get my head around £1000 a day transport costs to and from school.
