No room on the plane.

Ryanair have caused a storm by refusing to allow disabled passengers onto a flight. Disability group Scope have subsequently called for a boycott of the sirline. It will interesting to see if Ryanair's claim that their policy is line with other airline's is true. Personally I see this as a sad reflection of our current society where the euro/pound/dollar is king and the rights of others are trampled on if it is convenient to do so. Such a backward view on those with disbilities belongs firmly in the last century.
