[access-uk] Re: RNIB

Talk about access then not about retail practice.  They charge what they like 
and you have a choice to buy or not.

It seems to me it's any excuse to bash the RNIB with some.

There not always right but some will have a go at anything they do just because 
it's them.

I'm not saying you are here but with some it just helps them cling on to the 
poor blind me bit that they go through life so desperately holding on to.

If there so bad stop griping about it and start a charity of your own and do it 
another way.

Still I'll be saying no more on it as I still think it's off topic for this 
list as I said in the first place.

  Ta Scott.

Because the RNIB sell access equipment for blind people and this is an 
access list.
