        I have been doing a GREAT deal of yelling recently re so-called sustainable green housing whose designs are usually so unconscionably inaccessible (barrier FULL), they require the prowess of an Olympic athlete to negotiate! I note that Britain has also like British Columbia been undergoing rampant housing development. Will ANY of it accommodate an aging population and/or people with disabilities, I wonder? As we speak, I'm formulating a flame to Country Life magazine, which spends a lot of ink on architecture, in an effort to spread my jaundiced view.
         
        As women, we are constantly assailed by corporate media to hurry up and thin (and disappear, ultimately). As people with disabilities, we are rarely even WARNED that there may be unnegotiable obstacles on a particular path/vehicle/course of action that pose very real dangers to us. The message in both cases is NOT WELCOME and we're all sick to bloody death of it!
         
        Happily, your letter is much more artful than my rantt. Have you taken steps, I HOPE, to get it to Palin? Have you called Have Your Say at the BBC? Gosh, if I was that articulate I bloody would. Give the bastard some discomfort. Mr. Charm, Mr. Funnyman, Mr. Well-Travelled Socialist should find an accessible venue or pay damages! As the inimitable Francis Urquart might have put it, put a bit of stick about!

            Louise,

            Thank you for your support, you may use these arguments in the letter
            in any way that improves access for all.

            AS stated in my film 'bicycles and wheelchair' wheelchairs are
            ecological forms of transport, we were the first.

            <http://www.putfile.com/yourcamden/media>

            or

            <http://www.youtube.com/user/yourcamden>

            The video is particularly suitable for deaf people as it is text
            based. I will be trying to find a way to provide an audio description
            for blind people at a latter time when I have more resources.

            Before I make any further comment on Palin and co. I'll wait a
            response in the next issue.

            The Camden New Journal is an amazing weekly free paper, at one time it
            had an independent correspondent in Iraq (the editors' son) and up
            until February it had the oldest regular columnist of any paper I know
            as Rose Hacker was 101 years old, sadly she passed away earlier this
            year.

            all good wishes

            Keith
