Daily Mail attack disabled parking

As readers of this blog are well aware, there is a serious lack of accessible parking spaces available throughout the majority of the UK. Quite why the Daily Mail feel the need to promote an agenda to remove these spaces and replace them with parent and child parking is beyond me.

Because they're dicks, basically.

It;s the Mail, what did you expect?

Yes, but did you read the comments? MANY of them are calling the mail for what they are and even mothers with children admit that there are not enough disabled parking bays. Lets face it, the mail would print any old shite to create a story, and this is their attempt at a non-story which backfired on them.

Hey! want to hear about one of the good guys? I pulled in to one of the Little Chefs on the Northbound carriageway on the A1 just north of Peterborough and parked my little white Citroen Berlingo van in one of their disabled bays. The manager actually came out to ask me to move OUT of it, just before he noticed me putting my blue badge in the windscreen! If only everyone was so concienscous.

Also the bottom Tesco in Lincoln are wheelclamping anyone who illegally park in a disabled bay. (not that there are very many of them) Very good, I say!

Jaycee: Hiya! I read some of them, but I usually lose the will to live after one or two comments on Mail articles.
I like your good and bad examples, particularly the little chef one, that's ace. If you ever get a chance to snap some photos of blue badge blunders or bog offs I'm always looking for contributions and link back to your blog or professional website.

Jo: I know...I think I was having an idealisticly not very with it moment ;)

Peter: Best summing up of the Fail ever!
