I'm a Cross Between the Milk Tray Man and Gandhi

We definitely need more disabled people in adverts, on TV and in movies. But hey, it's a start.
Scope research says some 90% of disabled people believe that having more disabled people in the media would improve attitudes to disability. For me, the Paralympics changed everything.
Disability in Australia was seen quite differently after the 2000 Paralympics and I think a similar thing happened here in the UK. I think the games made disability not only okay, but wonderful. But unfortunately in Britain there's a real stigma attached to benefits and I think somehow that has become associated with disability.
