Never mind repealing laws, enforce properly the ones we have. My son who has cerebral palsy and is a permanent wheelchair user is still unable to travel on the tube, or gain access to public buildings, particularly in London. He is now 19 and we have been promised for years an end to discrimination and access for all. Businesses pay lip service to DDA ,more people seem to support animal rights than disabled peoples rights in this country !

Why is this idea important?

There are millions of disabled people in the UK, many of whom have such significant disability that there voices go unheard and they do not have the voice of other minority groups such as Gay people or people from ethnic minorities. Unless you are personally affected by the discrimination and lack of access no-one seems to care and the DDA gets ignored.

Even the most fundamental civil rights and liberties do not exist for this silent minority.
