       Read over the whole thing...Very good suggestions, IMHO. However, I so 
strongly doubt any of them will actually be listened to (Okay, I am a bit 
cynical), that I'm not going to hold my breath. The internet suggestions 
seemed rather obvious. However, I was incredibly amused by the suggestions 
for MPs, MSPs, etc. Good suggestions, but why the necessity of a reporter in 
tow? Makes the whole effort seem incredibly insincere on the part of the 
relevant legislator: "Hey, look! I'm letting a disabled person shadow me! 
*shove aside said person, grab camera* VOTE FOR ME!" Bit of an exaggeration, 
but it did hit my mind immediately.
