Inaccessible tube nightmare
If you're a disabled Londoner - or even if you've only ever visited the capital - you'll know that, despite the powers of the DDA, the Underground network is still as inaccessible as it gets, most especially for wheelchair users. Like Crippled Monkey, you've probably looked at London Underground's tube access guide map, seen the ridiculously small number of stations that are marked as accessible, and decided to find another way to get about the city - usually a taxi.
But if you really want all the essential facts, figures and statistics on just how useless the tube is, check out a recent post by London blogger and self-confessed 'tube geek' Diamond Geezer. He's got more information than you could ever ask for. Did you know, for instance, that if you live in Amersham on the Metropolitan Line, you can use the station to get into London, but then you can never go home again because the station is step-free in only one direction? How very useful!
