Disability Campaigners disgraced at popstars song lyrics

Disability campaigners are disgraced at a famous pop stars new album which they claim offends disabled people. Robbie Williams' album 'Rudebox,' released in October includes a song with the same name, has the line, 'Dance like you've just won the Special Olympics.' Raymond Johnson, from People First (Self Advocacy) said: 'It's disgraceful. This is just a modern way of saying dance like a spastic.' But Robbie Williams has not apologised for the remarks in the tune and a spokesman on his behalf claims he has 'admiration for disabled athletes.' The Disabled Peoples Council have shunned the album calling it 'rank disabilism.' EMI, the record company have hit back at the critics claiming they do not believe 'it is appropriate for us to censor our artists.'
