From blog correspondent Samer al-Batal
Nuns must find £400,000 for disabled access or close shrine at Tyburn
Under the revised Act, all buildings that provide "goods, facilities or services" to the public must have the same "access, use and exit" for the disabled as the able-bodied. Any business or organisation failing in its responsibilities could face prosecution.

S al-B: Totalitarianism of 'the public', or meddlesome government busybodies. [End.]

That's the position of LRC on this; charity to the handicapped of course is a good thing but it seems as with other things the government bollockses it up. Oh, and 'handicapped' is a better word, as I read once on LRC: those of us with handicaps aren't 'disabled' but rather are able to do lots of things, just not everything.
