Graeme Ellis, a lifelong Conservative voter who is disabled, told BuzzFeed News he could not remain a member of a party which is reducing disability payments while cutting taxes for high earners:

I couldn’t have any association with a political party that could send disabled people to the wall. How can they be trying to save money when the figures they’re taking off the disabled match what they’re planning on giving the better-off in the Budget?
