    As a Canadian I was shocked to hear of the mistreatment of physically disabled passengers on London buses! That kind of behaviour would be unacceptable in our drivers, indeed the other passengers would not let such behaviour go. That is not to say that there have not been some incidents…of course there have. But an incident of the kind described would happen once and all hell would break loose! I have a soft spot for Britain, and hope this may be a lack of humanism only found in London. It makes me even more proud to be Canadian.

      Quite right, T – disgraceful. I get to Canada now and again, and yup, passengers would certainly speak out. We could use some of that. Let’s hope a combination of TFL’s shame and the Paralympics will help to recalibrate attitudes on this one right away.
