Spartacus your understanding of the term 'disabled' shows your complete lack of thought and empathy towards those less fortunate than many others. Many disabled badge holders do not need a wheelchair many have heart or respiratory problems meaning they cannot walk far, others with complex medical needs have been given access because the medics feel it appropriate. Disabled people need special arrangements in order to allow them to have 'equal opportunity' and cope in the same way as those who do not have a disability. Were you supporting and cheering all our great disabled Olympians recently ? Many of whom have been given extra support in order that they can demonstrate their character and achievements. Would you prefer us to quietly forget about the disabled as previous generations did or should we celebrate their achievements?
