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.

Peter Tan in his blog wrote about the inconsiderate drivers in Malaysia who park in bays marked for disabled people. He said its one way for them to catch notoriety and be marked by their behavior and be splattered over different blogs for being shown to be inconsiderate. Shame on them!

Well we think they obviously need disability equality training but here's a twist from Brighton, one would think this s a politically aware city - and on top of that - from a "Coun Theobald, cabinet member for transport, has led a series of campaigns against the abuse of disabled parking badges and said earlier this year it was important to “make sure disabled parking is available for those who really need it”. He was caught to have parked in exactly one of those spaces designated for disabled people.

Tut tut, surely you think he should have known better?
You can read the full story from The Argus

On another note, there is going to be action on the abuse of disabled parking permits here in the UK according to the TimesOnline.
