i am not a client, a customer, nor a service user.
i am not a shirker, a scrounger, a beggar, nor a thief.
i am not a national insurance number, nor a 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.
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, nothing less. thank you.
(i, daniel blake - ken loach, 2016)
