Before having to give up work due to chronic illness she was a stand-up comedian, writer and commentator on disability issues.She writes a column for The Guardian. where her areas of interest include popular culture and the social politics of disability.

Her disability-rights activist’s blog, Where’s the Benefit, provides strong opposition to the government’s 'distressing war on disabled benefit claimants'."
