The outcry on this forum is disproportionate and unnecessarily opprobrious - it highlights the ugly nature of UK-driven political correctness. I wonder how many disabled persons were actually inconvenienced in the 2.5 hours that Deputy Inglis parked in the space? Probably not even one. Certainly nobody came to any harm. Meanwhile, many hundreds of pedestrians and drivers are inconvenienced and put in danger every day by selfish and idle people who commit the far greater misdemeanour of parking willy nilly on pavements and highways, causing wanton obstructions and traffic jams all over the island. Indeed, I bet there are lots of posters here who have parked on the pavement or highway whilst they picked up their fish and chips or called in at somebody's house or collected their children - how they may justify such behaviour whilst castigating someone for the misuse of a disabled parking bay which might affect nobody at all, I do not know.
