This is disgusting. This kind of thought process is precisely what shut me out of my dream career. We as a society have to do better than this.
Apparently, there is no greater disability in life than a bad attitude.
I have been reading that line on social media for far too long.
And it annoys me!
Because no matter how positive a person is, when faced by steps, inaccessible toilets, sand, mud or some other physical barrier, a good attitude simply doesn’t magically make things accessible!
Then I saw this statistic from the Papworth Trust.
This is the “bad attitude”.
Suddenly I see that, yes, a bad attitude is disabling people!
We have 650 MPs in the House of Commons. “One in five” could mean that 130 of them may well think that disabled people should stop complaining and just accept that they can’t access life fully.
There are approximately 800 members of the House of Lords. Which means that there could be 160 Lords who may not believe that disabled people should expect equality.
