Thanks to a secret source at The Guardian, Benefit Scrounging Scum is delighted to bring you Bog Off!-The Meeja Luvvy Exhibit.
'It was a bit of a shock when I first opened the door-there were paper towels, toilet paper and other debris all over the floor. It was obvious no-one had been in to clean for a while and it was very off putting, not to mention potentially dangerous for anyone wobbly on their feet, or with a visual impairment.
The alarm cord was looped well above the handrail, so anyone who fell on the floor would have been unable to reach to call for assistance.
The positive points were that despite all the mess, both the toilet and handbasin were clean and it didn't smell in there. There was also a massive mirror, suitable for people of any heights, whether chair users or not.
Although the space was just about adequate for a wheelchair user, the soap dispenser and hot air dryers were probably slightly too high for anyone using a chair.
Overall I'd give it a 7/10, but had it not been so messy and the alarm cord not looped up it would have merited an 8.5/10. The building is huge so it's almost certain there are other disabled toilets. Let's hope the one I used, which was on the main newsroom floor was an aberration.'
Perhaps someone at The Guardian will be able to let BSS know if that's the case?
