(Insert hilarious one-legged joke here)
I know that the media tends to love stories where really obviously disabled people come up against ridiculous treatment from those in authority, and that I, Crippled Monkey, probably shouldn't be encouraging them. Still, a story from yesterday's Daily Mirror does provide a classic example of this, with the headline: One-leg man told: prove it. When it came time to renew his disabled parking badge, Ron Craig, who is an amputee, was asked by his local council to provide medical proof that he still only has one leg. Ron, from Shipley in West Yorkshire, is obviously a master of understatement, as he was reported as saying: "I can assure them that my leg has not grown back". Ouch salutes you, Ron.
