Remember that Facebook campaign against disabled people, attacking their “privilege” of having parking spaces reserved for them?
Well now the Daily Mail has stepped up that campaign.
After the Chancer of the Exchequer (and no, that’s not a typo) was photographed getting into his car which was parked in a bay reserved for disabled people, Liz Jones, a harridan of ill repute, wrote an article yesterday, in which she bragged of deliberately parking in those reserved spaces, despite not possessing a Blue Badge, the permit required to park in the specially marked parking bays.
Ironically, she is deaf, and so entitled to get a Blue Badge, but finds it too much of a bother, claiming that her mother once had one but “the red tape required to get the sticker required a PhD, beaten only by the fact it had to be renewed every year, just in case she was miraculously able to walk again.”
So, rather than “doing the right thing”, to borrow a phrase from the government front bench, she chooses to park illegally, even parking at “at a crazy angle“, so it’s likely her Land Rover takes up more than one space.
Of course, what she’s really doing is trying to encourage other people to park illegally. Disabled people, to her and her ilk, should be kept indoors unless, like hers, the disability is invisible.
It all helps the right-wing crusade against the most vulnerable people in our society.
After Jones called Holly Willoughby’s lack of make-up in public a “betrayal to women”, Willoughby’s “This Morning” co-presenter, Phillip Schofield, said “I swear there can be no greater force against all womankind than Liz Jones. She is inconsistent, bitter, nasty and unhinged.”
I quite agree.
