Case Study

Door knocking

I attended an Action Day last Saturday and was greeted by our Campaign Coordinator with “oh, are you able to go door knocking?”

Me: “No, you know I can’t.“

Campaign Co-ordinator: “Well we’ve got no telephones for you.”

This is outrageous, I am not the only mobility impaired member and was made to feel completely surplus to need and useless as I couldn’t do what they wanted.

I had got a taxi there to ensure my attendance. That’s how much my attendance and input is valued.

(Incidentally I am also the candidate for councillor for our ward.)
