And she is a Baroness because??? 11 gold medals does not justify a title!– Pete, Midlands, UK (not EU), 26/3/2012 12:15——————And the ironic thing is that they do not race in ‘wheelchairs’ – they are specially built very expensive machines that make it extremely easy to race. Where is the achievement in that ? I would like to see them race in actual wheelchairs.

as surely anyone could easily see a comparrison between wheelchair races and cycling races?
I think that these people writing in might deserve our sympathy rather than our hate, as they obviously are 'not right' in their head or emotions, they seem to be mentally or emotionally disabled themselves, unfortunatley one of their symptoms is unpleasentness, hatred and cruelty, so we find it difficult to see past their bile, and recognise that they themselves are hurting.
THEN I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM CRAWL AROUND ON THE FLOOR WHILE I THROW PENNIES AT THEM.
Even by their standards, some of those are fucking atrocious. It is like they have had their soul slowly sucked out by whining Mail articles about the EU, health and safety, PC, "so-called equality" going mad and just don't give a shit about anything anymore but themselves.
equal rights? nah, blacks and women and gays just want SPECIAL TREATMENT!" line of thinking that they end up compulsively applying it to everything as soon as they see the word "equality", without pausing to think that maybe it's not actually completely unreasonable for *disabled people* to want "special treatment
Truly mind boggling
Though strictly your thread should be called "Daily Mail Readers tackle Disability".
I feel awful because the absurness of using the term "wheelies" made me burst out laughing...
often the worst, most hate-filled ones get the most green arrows.
These are just from today
The best is when a criminal has been sentenced for some sickening GBH, people then get green arrows for going into gory, graphic detail on the mutilations they would enjoy dishing out to him. Or offering their gleeful hopes that they are raped in prison.
Not yet anyway. For now it is just an amusing pasttime, I even find myself looking up the Mail article on specific stories just to LOL at the comments.
