It’s Going To Get Precious Little Sympathy From Me Too…

The family were initially awarded £4000 after seeking action against Flamingo Land, but that decision was overturned at the Court of Appeal in London.
And the decision – that left the family just weeks from losing their homereceived no sympathy from the amusement park, despite three of the four family members being severely disabled.
Hmmm, no, indeed. Possibly that’s because it didn’t deserve any?
The spokeswoman added: “The claimant holidayed here as a result of a charitable donation though originally requested personal reimbursement for the cost of his holiday.
"The claimant’s appeal costs were funded by the taxpayer and – in our opinion – should never have been allowed to progress to the Court of Appeal.”
Well, no. But he’s not learned anything from this, clearly:
Now he is hoping to embark on a disability awareness campaign to show the problems disabled people face from service providers “and the judiciary system”.
Double or quits!

This was a good judgement and hopefully will "raise awareness" and "send out a message"....

What's good for the goose and all that.

Is that enough with the clichés already?

Great contribution to the gene pool, supported by the humble tax payer!

XX Dad Paul is registered blind and his youngest daughter – who cannot be named – lives with cystic fibrosis. His eldest, Melissa has severe Down’s syndrome and autism.

The 15-year-old exhibits very challenging behaviour when distressed, including self-harm, and/or hitting out at others.XX


Is this not a PERFECT advert for Euthinasia?

They should not allow such to breed. And if they do, then get rid of them as soon as possible.

And raised to think cheating the taxpayer is another form of 'work'... :/
