The Government has been accused of “evading” disability rights by ignoring the recommendations of a major UN committee, in what has been described as a “continuing retrogression” of disabled people’s rights in the UK. Disability organisations from across the country have accused ministers of ignoring questions put to it earlier this year by the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, leaving disabled people to face “serious discrimination” in educational, employment and social opportunities.

Surely not indeed, would friends or associates of Prince Charles do any of this. Surely they would not get pleasure from seeing animals being attacked and torn apart by other animals.

Just as Prince Charles and his family members would not just shoot and kill wild animals for pleasure and trophies.

Surely not.

Pride's Purge

Fox hunters are not the well-dressed, refined people some think they are.

The real fox hunters are basically little more than thugs; trespassing on and destroying people’s property, torturing their own hounds and and clubbing puppies to death, riding roughshod over ancient protected areas and punching pensioners in the face:

Not to mention enjoying watching beautiful animals being torn apart while still alive for ‘pleasure’.

In a latest example of their thuggish barbarity, a man out walking his dogs was attacked by hunters and hounds from the Mendip Farmers Hunt, resulting in horrific injuries to both of his dogs:

But according to the local police, the thuggish attack will not even be investigated.

Could the reluctance from local police to react to this crime be connected in any way to the fact that a leading member of the hunt is Alastair Martin, the Secretary of the Duchy…

A woman whose daughter was thrown out of a pub because she was disabled is hoping an awareness-raising “disability pride” event in the same city this weekend will highlight the discrimination faced by people with invisible impairments. Jenny Skelton, who is disabled herself, has been planning Disability Pride Brighton since the incident with Charlie – one of her three adopted, disabled daughters – took place at a bar in Brighton last August. Charlie had crouched to the floor with her hands over her ears after being startled by some sudden loud music, but a member of staff asked her to leave, despite being told by her mother that the actions were a result of her impairment and that kicking her out was a breach of the Equality Act. Skelton said the company that runs the bar, Laine Pub Company (LPC), was so “horrified” at the way she was treated by its member of staff – who left his job as a result of the incident – that it contributed £1,500 towards the costs of Disability Pride Brighton,

Premier League clubs have made limited progress on improving access for disabled fans, campaigners have said. Thirteen out of the 20 sides are failing to provide the required number of wheelchair spaces, says the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). It says only seven clubs have larger, fully equipped toilets, while seven clubs are breaking Premier League rules on providing information to fans. The Premier League said clubs were working hard to improve facilities. Clubs may miss disability deadline Warning over disabled access A BBC report in 2014 found that 17 of 20 clubs did not provide enough wheelchair spaces. Clubs later set a self-imposed deadline to meet standards by August 2017 and the Premier League has pledged to publish a report then to highlight the work carried out. EHRC chair David Isaac said it would launch an investigation into clubs who had failed to meet the minimum requirements and did not publish a clear action plan or timetable for improvement. “The end
