Disabled people overload on TV!?

Nearly choked on my lion bar when a short statured teacher popped up on Eastenders last night and then on top of that there's a blind person and someone with Albinism on Big Brother!

Not sure if the EE character will be a regular but at least the Big Brother inmates might last for a few weeks and provide some sort of enlightenment. All good stuff I hope.

Indeed! It's just that disabled people don't make it onto British TV that often. If only they did perhaps the general public would realise that we are part of the human race!
