The disabled have paid a dreadful price for the death of Ivan Cameron.
David Cameron has taken his grief out on a nation.
In cases of loss of family members we are all affected by grief and need time to mourn.
David Cameron needed time to grieve and all his decisions, since he took office, he has taken
Influenced by Grief.
“The aftermath of Grief”, Advise from my Medical Text Book.
What you might be feeling:
· Sudden attacks of self-pity and frustration or bursts of outrage and a sense of injustice that may feel childlike: “Why me?” or “This isn’t fair!” As one person put it, “I just keep thinking that this isn’t what we signed up for.”
Bitterness or resentment. If you’ve lost someone who died relatively young, you may feel bitter about having lost her “before her time.” Many people describe feelings they’re not proud of, such as, “Why couldn’t it have been him instead?” One person who lost her father early to cancer reported feeling ashamed of her lack of compassion when other friends described their difficulties with fathers in poor health. She heard a voice in her head saying, “I’ll trade you any day.”
What you might notice:
· A desire to avoid certain social situations, particularly those where others are celebratory or self-congratulatory.
· Irritation when others complain about things that seem petty and unimportant compared with what you’re going through.
· A tendency to react with mistrust and sarcasm.
· Anger and bitterness over others sincere expressions of sympathy.
· Someone saying “I understand,” or “Is there something I can do?” “Every cloud has a silver lining” might make you want to scream. You must find time to grieve.
Section 175A of the Highways Act 1980 was inserted following the enactment of the Disabled Persons Act 1981 and can be summarised as follows:
(a) Authorities and persons exercising a statutory power to execute works on the street, shall have regard to:
(i) the needs of disabled people and blind people whose mobility may be impeded by the works; and,
(ii) without prejudice to the generality of paragraph (i) above the needs of blind people to have any openings, whether temporary or permanent, in the street properly protected.
(b) An Authority or person mentioned in sub-section (a) above, shall have regard to the needs of disabled people and blind people when placing lamp-posts, bollards, traffic signs, apparatus, or other permanent obstructions in the street.
(c) A Highway Authority shall have regard to the needs of disabled people when considering the desirability of providing ramps at appropriate places between carriageways and foot-ways.
(d) Section 28 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act, 1970 (power to define certain expressions for the purposes of provisions of that Act), shall have effect as if any reference in it to a provision of that Act included a reference to this section.
Also, Chapter 8 of the Traffic Signs Manual sets out standards to be observed when working in the highway. In many cases this will be a contractual requirement. Public utilities and their contractors must also, under Section 65 of the New Roads and Streetworks Act 1991, comply with the associated Code of Practice called Safety at Street Works and Road Works.
Nothing shall impede the right of passage of disabled people.
Today in the UK no disabled have these rights the pedestrian walkways are full of obstructions that no one prevents. The biggest offenders are the local authorities and councils.
You can have your own opinion as to why he has acted in this way but the truth is if Ivan Cameron was alive I would be the only one fighting for his rights that David Cameron has denied him.
