Seems he holds attitudes that would imply the government was as to blame as the Disabled people they're unfairly treating. Our impairments don't equal suffering yet many think they do.

I have suspension on my front wheels. Doesn't help much sadly. I did have a wheelchair with suspension on the back seat but it didn't work that well.

I do like a bit of asphalt. As long as it's maintained & when it's dug up it's all replaced & not patched.

FAIR WARNING: Call me an "access inclusion seeker" and you'll get punched in the face. In other words, "Don't diss my disability." Too many fought, got arrested, probably died so I could proudly proclaim it. PC plonkers don't get to take that history away.

As I watch the news I wonder if Thanos had the right idea. I think if we got shot of half the global population it wouldn't be a huge loss. As long as I can pick the half that vanishes. I think you can guess who'd be going. 😈😀🤪😀😈

On the same news bulletin that sees a reporter challenge Emma Thompson for flying to a climate change protest the story about a record breaking hot Easter is covered as a good thing. Because if weather is record breaking it couldn't be proof of major problems with global climate.

I can't believe we're sleepwalking back into the Troubles. All this run away nationalism will bring an awful harvest. Having lived through IRA action in the UK & being in St Albans when the attack happened there it breaks my heart. We need to grow up.

Strange contrasts . People protesting about climate change yet laughing breakfast hosts and weather readers celebrating how it’s going to be hotter than ever’ Record breaking’ and how great it is ! Pollen levels even worse. What is wrong with this picture !

Slabs all knackered, cobbles poorly maintained, setts broken by delivery vehicles. Camden Town is a nightmare if you're mobility or visually impaired. It's too busy to have such poor paving. Not just an access issue but a safety one too.

Watching Moomin Valley & saw adverts for . To think I was one of the team of live continuity presenters when Nick went live in the UK. Along with who was my co-presenter. Never knew what was coming as the kids picked the shows & rang in live. ❤️

Popped into Camden but the pavements hurt too much. Been having weird hypersensitivity recently & combined with the crappy pavements it means I can't enjoy the sunshine where I live. Home inside again. Obvious why I keep finding I'm dangerously Vit D deficient.

Jeez. There needs to be a dedicated online property sales outlet for Disabled people.

I remember being told similar because I was Disabled. Didn't matter that one of my TV shows won an Emmy & a BAFTA nomination. I had only been chosen to front the show & all others because I was Disabled. Well sod em. I was great & so are you.

I'm working with several public bodies who have implemented remote & flexible working. It's really paying off for all employees & benefits the employer because they need less real estate. My wife works in computers where remote working is becoming the norm.

In 1998 I filmed an item for the BBC highlighting the legal change meaning all new builds should be accessible. Made no difference as far as I've seen. Councils don't enforce regs. Build an extension without planning & it's knocked down. Build something not accessible & it's fine

I spend my life educating people on the social model. It's now my career believe it or not! Every day I get to watch a room realise how amazing this way of thinking is & how it leads to a better fairer world.

Doh. Off to a party. Didn't know the Slimes was having a special night. They're not the best at publicity are they?

Just discovered that online property sites in Spain now have access information on them. Be nice if the UK followed suit eh? Imagine if Right Move or Zoopla had accessible as a filter? If course in the UK they'd be no results! 🤪

Arh the myth of the benefits. I teach my trainees the truth & it's scary to watch the room as the learn the truth.
