    I find it very hard to have any sympathy for Sean Dilley. He’s a rightwing hack who has defended and even championed everything the Tories have done to and against disabled people. Perhaps if he wasn’t such a Tory cheerleader and cared about other people with disabilities as much as his own career, I might be able to muster a scrap of respect for the guy. Sean Dilley is reaping what he’s helped to sow. He’s spent his adult life aiding rightwing prejudice and only cares when it starts blowing up in his own face.

      Here is how some of his other cab stories get published… this one from 2012 –

      I’m not going to quote any of the vile brexit-hate BS on here, so check it out for yourself.

      Of course the DWP-Atos-Corbyn loving Guardian is a bit more subtle –
      “the reason for refusals vary – mostly it’s down to a cultural misunderstanding”
      “Amber Valley, for instance, had a policy of issuing medical exemption certificates on religious grounds”
      ,

      “They don’t know what it’s like to pay out more than £300 for camera equipment to record encounters.”
      BS – Mine cost < £30. or … If he's able to use Uber then record it on his smartphone ffs! (if it's true)

    Hi there, I have been made aware of this comment by Dino Goldie, and two others on twitter which would possibly be actionable in law. Other than to reject that I have ever championed any political party (show me one example where I have), I blocked Dino Goldie, I think some time back in 2011 following personally directed commentss on social media. He doesn’t like me very much, which is ok by me. I’m a huge fan of freedom of expression – but I would caution against comments that may impact reputation when they are demonstrably untrue. I am neither right wing or left wing. It is so important to test everyting – professionally I deal in claims and counterclaims – then try to find the truth.

    Phobos – excellent point re: smartphones. I have used a smartphone on several occasions, but my well known actino cam has a virewing angle of 150 degrees, which means I’m far more like to catch identifying features this way. I’m not sure what camera kit you have for under £30, but please let me know, as I would be very interested and grateful. I would be interested in what the field of view (how wide it films) and the resolution would be? you may be able to point me int he direction of a mssive cost saving for the future.

What are you thinking?
