Stroke victim, Brian McArdle, 57, died a day after his disability benefits were stopped

Stroke victim, Brian McArdle, 57, died a day after his disability benefits were stopped.

Brian McArdle suffered a stroke

He was left paralysed down one side, unable to speak, blind in one eye and barely able to eat or dress.

Under Osborne’s ideological austerity drive, he was declared fit for work and died days later. 

Brian McArdle (1911–2002) was a British medical doctor and researcher.

McArdle published a paper in 1951 entitled “Myopathy due to a defect in muscle glycogen breakdown”. The paper described a young man with a lifelong history of exertional muscle pain and stiffness – symptoms that previous doctors had dismissed as imagined. This is what we now know as Glycogen Storage Disease Type V. Since then the molecular and genetic basis of the disease has been identified. Glycogen storage disease type V was named for him as McArdle's disease.
