a large part of my job is supporting disabled folk getting around in west cumbria. i can assure you that the vast majority of people -including those you may sneeringly dismiss as 'vicky pollards' are considerate and helpful. some people of all types may sit in disabled places and stare off into the middle distance as we try to get wheelchairs on and off but they are a small minority and routinely disapproved of by other passengers. i should also say that bus drivers are unfailingly dead good at trying to get everyone sorted on the bus. maybe we are just lucky or maybe it's a cumbrian thing - but i doubt it.
