"i am not a client, a customer, nor a service user. i am not a shirker, a scrounger, a beggar, nor a thief. i'm not a national insurance number or blip on a screen. i paid my dues, never a penny short, and proud to do so. i don't tug the forelock, but look my neighbour in the eye and help him if i can. i don't accept or seek charity. my name is daniel blake. i am a man, not a dog. as such, i demand my rights. i demand you treat me with respect. i, daniel blake, am a citizen, nothing more and nothing less.thank you."
