British law, like U.S. law. requires the physical reconstruction of the universe so handicaps are no longer handicaps. Failure to do the necessary reconstruction is strictly forbidden as a violation of fundamental human decency. That’s what laws against “discrimination” on the basis of disability are all about.
Such laws are yet another glorious social advance that turns out to have stupid and vicious consequences. It becomes much more difficult and complicated to do anything for anyone. You can’t just do something simple for those who benefit, you have to make sure that what you’re doing will have equal benefits for every sentient being in the universe who might want to make use of it. Otherwise you’re not allowed to do anything at all.
An instance: Nuns must find 400,000 pounds sterling for disabled access or close shrine at Tyburn. There’s a shrine in a London crypt near the old location of the King’s gallows at Tyburn that contains the relics of 105 Roman Catholic martyrs executed there between 1535 and 1681. The crypt is open to the public but (being a crypt) is hard to get to if you’re in a wheelchair. Under new antidiscrimination rules the nuns who maintain the shrine must close it down, or else enlarge and rebuild it and add an elevator with money they don’t have so people in wheelchairs can visit it as easily as anyone else. Freedom from oppression, it seems, has its price.
