Should be the same

The UK bus transit company mentioned in this story says it is only required to take certain types of wheelchairs on its buses, which doesn't include the type used by Simon Morris, 40, from Tairgwaith near Ammanford.
Made we wonder, do they only allow certain types of shoes as well?
The quotes from Morris in this article are particularly enlightening:

-- "Lots of people like me...are too embarrassed to try because we don't want to be turned away."

-- "My £10 notes are the same as everybody else's £10 notes. It's all got the Queen's head on it, but people look at me and say there's something different about yours because yours is in a wheelchair."

-- "I just want independence - it's not much to ask."
