On Carers Rights Day ...

Postby Chris From The Gulag » Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:21 am

Perhaps a few , brave , carers would dress up as guide dogs on that Day , and accompany a blind person on any public transport demanding that they travel free , and thus enjoy the same " Rights " as guide dogs ?

Perverse ? Perhaps but ... it clearly brings to the attention the issue of carers travel concessions , and the assumption that the Equalities Acts does actually apply to carers.

If too " Contraversial " for our supporting organisations even to consider , I'm sure that there are a few groups of carers only too willing out of the 6+ million carer army ?

Even have some fun for once at the expense of those in authority ???

If Plod do not see our argument , we'll have a whip round and have you out in no time.

There again , some might choose to phone their local LA and demand emergency cover for their caree whilst they are otherwise detained ?

After all , Carers Rights Day is all about rights ... that can be exercised ?

While on the subject of Guide Dogs, there is an issue with some taxi drivers refusing to let Guide Dogs in their cars.

Perhaps we will see a return to the " Good old days " as experienced by many when searching for property to rent in the " Rachman " areas in West London during the late fifties / early sixities ?

Signs on taxi cabs ... " No drunks , no dogs , no carers ? "

In London , I would add " No Hammers ! " ... on behalf of all fellow LO sufferers ... there's no known cure for that one !

Out of the three , quess which one would gain the most sympathy , and have legal eagles falling over themselves to get in on the action ?
