Laura Booth Quote

Disability is not inability. Laura Booth

Laura Booth is the mayor of Stockport, who has recently been mocked and criticised for her ‘choice’ of footwear, despite being an amputee.

Although absolutely not in the same realm as this ignorant behaviour, I was once chastised for wearing ‘trainers’ in my place of work despite actually wearing suede boat shoes that were clean and smart in appearance. My choice of footwear is because they are great for driving in, something I do an awful lot of.

I was so upset at the comment about my choice of footwear at the time, I cannot even imagine how someone in Mayor Booth’s position must be feeling. How disgraceful. How shameful of those people.
