The Phil & Simon Show
Just in time for Christmas, but Phil and Simon are not yet full of festive cheer. There’s campaigning to be done! Following the general election in the United Kingdom, Phil and Simon set out what would be in their disability manifesto. Simon gets all "Andrew Neil", and Phil becomes a Trade Union Rep! Is Berlin Tegel the most accessible airport if you have mobility difficulties, Simon explains why that might be. Tesco has joined the sunflower lanyard programme, to help non-visibly disabled people but is this the right approach? How is it being positioned?Talking of positioning, perception and reality, International Day of Disabled People was marked on the 3rd of December, and Phil and Simon wonder if it has a more significant impact in parts of the world other than in the UK. Is there an element of tick box? Does everyone make a big deal for a day then go back to as we were?Using a set of wheels when you’re navigating the pavement, is there some kind of etiquette? Why do people keep moving away from their line of travel and aim directly at Simon forcing him to move? Is he a magnet? Are they over overcompensating? Who will chicken out first?We update listeners on TUI and their wheelchair height restrictions plus listeners suggestions for song titles linked to disability. This includes the perennial Choices and Rights and a new song, The Social Model. After our conversation on the last show about Career and Personal Development Courses, a listener asks why aren’t there more of these courses?That is it for 2020. Thank you for listening, thank you for taking part and thank you for contacting us. Have a super Christmas and a wonderful New Year. Sainsburys sunflower lanyard  (https://www.about.sainsburys.co.uk/news/latest-news/2019/07-10-2019-sainsburys-and-argos-announce-national-rollout-of-hidden-disability-lanyard-scheme)Tilly Moses  (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-49911276)The Social Model song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kJe7FNSy_0&list=PLzkk4hYjDKsOl6WZSU2yTCPbGGf2rYmkx&index=3&t=0s)Choices and Rights song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yU8344cQy5g)Jane Campbell on Desert Island Discs  (https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01lh96q)
