I do so agree with Christopher Maguire about the disability lobby going too far. One should not design every building for the very rare eventuality. I was crippled with polio as a small boy, and I find stairs extremely difficult (I often wonder why I took up a profession which seems to involve climbing to the top of disused buildings where the electricity has been cut off, or half-constructed buildings where the lift has not yet been put in, but there you are). I do not think that every building should be provided with a lift just for me, although I do think that people could be a bit more free with the provision of realistic handrails. We each have some difficulty to put up with: some of us are cleverer than others, and Mr Maguire is taller than me. If he visits me, he will undoubtedly bang his head on the door between hall and the kitchen - but my wife has learned to duck!
