Photo-a-Day (Friday, 6th September, 2013)
Wow.....very arty....something a bit different.....nice one Michael....cheers!!!
I know Scotmans and Pearsons but hunters is anew one to me. Where is it?
That not going to stop motorbike yobs.
Im always surprised to see that these gates are still there when Im passing and not been cut off and weighed in at one of the local scrap merchants.
You and many others have got the Wrong impression of Ince, haven't you Mick at 07:03.
THAT WILL KEEP THE CRIPPLES OUT.NO MOBILITY SCOOTERS HERE.
Hi Anne, hunters flash is the official name but ive always known it as Blackwaters.
We used to fish there as kids ,was known as black waters . full of pike and tench,on a sunny day you could stand on top of the slag heaps and see the pike just sunny there self's in the clear water .
Does that included our soldiers who have lost limbs in the war and have to use one of those.
You'll need one of those if you keep talking like that.
Garry it not just in Ince that metal gates get cut off and weighed in its happening all over Britain dont you know.
Steve, Rons already got one so he know how these gates restrict the disabled and cyclist getting through and seeing the countryside.
And it all because of teenagers who illegally ride there motorcycles.
Motorcycles that the teenagers parents and familys know that they own.
I think you may have misunderstood the point Steve, you may find that Ron D can only go where his mobility scooter will take him.We can only enjoy his pictures of around Haigh etc because of the access.
Yes Steve, a misunderstanding here. Ron is disabled, a lovely chap who takes some brilliant photographs.. but limited to where he can go.
I think that Ron D's comment was intended to be a bit or irony. Despite the fact that he apparently has mobility problems himself, I think that the term Cripples is politically incorrect and could be offensive to some folk with disabilities. Quite right though, because of the mindless few, these barriers will also keep out the folk with mobility scooters, prams etc. What's the solution?
There's a few people misunderstood on here!
Steve's comment at 09:31 made me laugh, classic case of a keyboard warrior missing the irony and jumping in feet first with a threat.
With respect to the term Cripple it's not PC but I think I understand Ron's use of the word as a disabled man himself is justified.
Much like the way ethic minorities use the 'N' word when referring to each other.
A good example would be the song Spasticus Autisticus by Ian Dury a man who was himself disabled
No apology from Steve, yet.?????
How can anyone who does not know that Ron D is disabled, handicapped, crippled, or whatever other term is politically correct to describe his condition, be expected to understand the irony of his comment?? I didn't have a clue until reading these comments that Ron uses a mobility scooter and I suspect that Steve and many others who read these comments didn't either.
Agree Hugh, Ron might like to call himself a cripple, but beleive me the soldiers who have lost limbs, and are still raising money for charity's, don't like to called that.
Ken, apology for what????????????
Turners flash Correct name for black waters
It does't matter weather you say cripple ,disabled person, or distressed hero, political proceed-ya will still keep you out.
