Toby I seem to recall that you are a personal friend of Neil Forman? He is the one who has been a bit unravelled since I mentioned his tribunal case which I found on the web. Perhaps you should be worried about him? Disabled badge holders are a very small group of people. Of course we should try to accommodate their needs within reason and have measures to promote inclusivity. I do not agree however that special parking spaces are the best way to do this and they are by no means essential to enable disabled badge holders to access the services they need. There are many options and better solutions to this. The general public is a much larger group and includes plenty of people with special needs and disabilities, albeit they do not qualify for a disabled badge. We should try to accommodate everyone's needs equally and be careful that we do not give special facilities to some minority groups at the expense of others, who might be equally distressed if they are unable to access the services they require. My comment no 33 was sound, if you think having disabled parking spaces lying empty everywhere is a perfect solution to anyone's problems you are welcome to disagree with me, I have no problem with that, but if you are troll hunting you should be pointing your finger at Tim, Scarlett and your chum Neil.
