Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

Following my complaint to Hastings bus company  about my being unable to get on their low access buses, I recieved this e-mail from the manager:

Dear Ms....

I have checked all the vehicles and everyone works. All are manual ramps. I have seen the driver who told you his ramp did not work, I have taken him to the vehicle concerned and pressed the button and pulled out the ramp. Clearly the issue was not one of a defective ramp but a driver who either didn't understand how to operate it or didn't want to operate it. Either way I have instigated a retraining programme for staff and will take disciplinary action against anyone who fails to comply with the rules.

Hooray! I guess he realised the implications of  DDA non compliance - this is still great that he has taken action.
