David Cameron uncomfortable with feminism

It appears that David Cameron has refused to wear a T-Shirt for an Elle Magazine feminism issue, with the slogan This is what a feminist looks like. This is whilst Nick Clegg and Ed Milliband happily wore the T-Shirt.

NHS England launch new wheelchair services campaign. Sadly using that special NHS jargon they say that their mission is:  

To mobilise and galvanise commitment groups to transform wheelchair services to a point where users with complex and changing needs can always get the right wheelchair for their needs in a timely way, and appropriate and continuing support. 

I think they mean that they are going to get NHS staff, wheelchair providers, patients and others together to make sure that those with complex needs can get the right wheelchair for them as quickly as possible! This is a really important issue for many people who need complex wheelchairs particularly for children and young people. Many people who dont know any wheelchair users just assume everyone gets the wheelchair they need on the NHS. Sadly this is not the case with many families and individuals paying thousands for specialised wheelchairs and equipment. So even if the NHS jargon is a bit off putting this is a very worthwhile campaign. 

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson the campaign champion and is launching it at an event at the end of November. You can find out more here.
