This is discriminating against disabled people and musicians from abroad, the Government should be ashamed. I agree with the point about evidence - where is the evidence that disabled musicians are more likely to stay in the UK than others? The whole thing is disgraceful.

This country’s attitude to disability and anyone that doesn’t fit into a neat little box is appalling.

This situation where disabled musicians are discriminated against on a cultural exchange that was actually backed by the government, and then refused entry by the same government is ludicrous!

Thanks for adding your voice.

A cultural exchange to support those artists with disabilities and the Home Office rejects the very people with disabilities? It’s ironic in a Machiavellian way. Not acceptable in a civilised society! The Home Office is a misnomer, their actions are shameful, I don’t recognise any part of my home there.

Thanks for adding your voice.
