    Short article in Welfare Weekly flagged up by @Keith Geraghty on Twitter:

    Aylward admits BPS model without foundation. (My interpretation).

    Here's a quote from the article.

    'However, once this was well known, Aylward was challenged in 2012 by disability activists in the company of the Editor of the Disability News Service, and finally admitted that his BPS model was considered by him to be “unsatisfactory” and that it “no longer addresses the real needs of disabled people and the exclusion of disabled people from society”.'

    To me it always seemed like that 2012 Aylward quote was just him trying to get away from disability protesters by coming out with some meaningless BS.

    Is this an admission of fraud on his part?

    Just asking.

    I'm sure he would have replaced it with something worse

    The chief witch-finder general isn't going to recant that easily.
