Jeez. Not reasonable at all.

This is so illegal. A massive health & safety breach for one. No one should face injury to vote. Disgusting. Perfect example of discrimination in action.

So sorry Yasmin. It is getting harsh out there but the good ones out number the bad. Keep fighting the good fight. You're a star & we love you. ❤️

So wish would feature a designer. Be so amazing to show we don't just need help but we also are experts, work & can help other disabled people. Be so empowering & challenge so many stereotypes. There's plenty of us that could do it out there too.

Surely this is soooo illegal? Universal suffrage means exactly that. Not just those who can walk, or fly

Been there, done that. It's why I went into what I do now. My media career was full of discriminatory acts, including the interview where I was told "not having any f*** ing cripples on my show, so I use those experiences to make things better in future. We will get there. ❤️

Oh there weren't any candidates. Just lots of locals trying to find the polling station. Eeek

33 years mate. I remember when soya mince was it. There was Cranks to eat out or veggie lasagna. That's it. Then I remember Pizza Hut & McDonald's opening in the UK too. 😀

Hate? Commenting that milkshakes were why he didn't leave the bus? Wow, if only that was the strongest thing faced by so many of us. In fact I'd even take a milkshaking now & then if everywhere was accessible.

Which is why we need unions. They would help fund a legal case because you were actively discriminated against which is illegal. You needed mediation & a advocate. Luckily things are changing but not quickly enough.

Ours was level but miles away from our home. Used to be right next door but it seemed like it was being hidden from voters.

Not exactly true although too many try it. Reasonable adjustment area legal requirement & the yard stick is what anyone reasonable expect. As most office jobs are now flexible & appropriate equipment is expected for all this should happen less. I know I advise on how. 😀

Today I popped into for the first time in ages. At the end of last year I was promised by management that the cobbles would be repointed but this hasn't happened. In fact many areas it's so bad it's a H&S problem. Please isn't it time to fix this?

Once at high school as far as I understand. This isn't sex ed. If we start allowing kids not to be taught anything about society, society falls.

Exactly. The materials being taught to younger children do not advocate or promote, they simply look to reflect and acknowledge all elements of our society so that no child, regardless of their background, is made to feel excluded. I think that is an ambition to be admired.

Anyone who knows anything knows common law is a myth. You have laws. Written into statute. By our government. If you don't like a law campaign to change it.

Of sex ed for senior school children, when it is sex ed. This teaching is nothing like that. It's about society & who is in it. The moral panic about being taught about homosexual acts is a smoke screen by bigots. This is mummy & daddy or mummy & mummy stuff. Innocent.
