What an ignoramus. Perhaps the person who left the note (above) has been listening too much to Tory anti-disability propaganda.

The note was left on a car parked in a space for disabled people by a mother and daughter who have a blue badge parking permit; they were entirely within their rights to park there.

Julie Tanner has a mental disability and needs one-on-one support at all times.

So it seems entirely justifiable for her to have been seriously disturbed when she and her daughter Paige returned to her car at the Woodley shopping precinct, near Reading, to find the following attached to it:

You will be reported for illegal use of a Blue Badge space.

“I witnessed you and your young, able-bodied daughter park the car at 13:10 on 19 Feb 2018 and walk towards the precinct with no sign of a disability.

“This selfish action deprives a disabled person of somewhere to park.”

No – the selfish action of the person who wrote the note instils insecurity and fear in a disabled person who deserves better from her neighbours.

As a sideline, This Writer used the Woodley precinct very often in the 1980s, when I was a student in Reading. I found it extremely pleasant; the people there seemed very friendly.

What a shame that an antisocial element has been allowed to creep in to this attractive area.
