What do you think:
- Should Government information be available to the whole population?
- Should Government information comply with the law?
- Or don’t disabled people really matter?
Depressing that the Government’s booklet setting out information about the EU referendum isn’t available in alternate formats. They seem to forget this requirement of the Equality Act 2010. They also seem to forget that people with long-term health conditions/disabilities are well-recognised as being on the “wrong side of the digital divide” so that simply including a website doesn’t resolve their responsibilities.
On the other hand, perhaps they just don’t care whether or how some 20% of the population will vote (or not).
Perhaps we definitely do need to stay within the EU to retain what is left of our equality and human rights?
