David Weir Can’t Get Accessible Council House


Yep this is how national Paralympic heroes get treated – exactly the same as all other disabled people!

Same Difference

Paralympic legacy, anyone?

PARALYMPIC hero David Weir has to drag himself upstairs by his arms to the toilet — because housing chiefs won’t give him a home with a downstairs loo.

 

David, who won four golds at London 2012, believes he did not get a better home over fears of “favouritism”.

 

 

 

Yesterday, the star’s mum Jacqueline said it was a national disgrace the 34-year-old wheelchair-bound athlete — a CBE who has won a total of six golds at London 2012 and Beijing 2008 — is being treated in such a callous way.

 

She added: “He’s a national hero but he can’t find a decent house and the council aren’t helping.

 

 

 

“He’s simply too good to have a nice house. He’s not a jailbird or a junkie so as far as they’re concerned he just has to make do with what he’s got.”
