an Answer for Graham Stringer MP

Some MP’s have no idea of what they are talking about; take Graham Stringer, Labour MP for Manchester, Blackley. I suffer quite badly from Dyslexia and it did not matter how much my teachers or my parents tried to help with my spelling and grammar I am still not able to string sentences together without loads of mistakes.

I have learnt to cope with this disability (and it is a disability) through the help of numerous special needs tutors and a computer. If this MP thinks that literacy is the coarse of so much crime wouldn’t it be better campaigning for more funding to help with the problem rather than taking the legs out from under the people that are working to help the sufferers?

There is no way in which this or any other MP could know what someone who suffers with Dyslexia has to go through on a daily bases, the humiliation and the frustration of not being able to communicate with others is degrading enough without an ill informed small minded person talking through their backside to put them down even more.
