What happened to Mandy Nolans’ column? It used to be outrageously funny and I’d be rolling on the floor laughing. Now (when I don’t flick past it) it’s just bad puns full of scorn.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
