Here we go again. Didn't take long for the wagons to be circled this time. Why would anyone disagree with the guy, who obviously wasn't treated well, as freely admitted by the TOC, who have quite rightly apologised.
But heaven forbid that any member of rail staff, on any occasion, should be held have acted wrongly in any way. In the real world, one guy acting wrongly doesn't subtract anything from the excellent service provided by the majority of staff - so why the knee-jerk defence every time?
Because the passenger would never make up information to cast himself in a better light would he? :roll:
Passengers can be arseholes just as much, if not more, than staff.
The TOC has not apologised for the incident (my bold).
A Stagecoach Group spokesperson said: "We are absolutely horrified at the events Mr Holt has described.
"We welcome electric wheelchairs on our services and it is very important to us that all of our passengers feel welcome on our network.
"We are taking this matter very seriously and have already launched an investigation."
As usual there is no effort taken by the media to ascertain the facts as it looks like they've rewritten his blog. Do you deny that it's plausible that the accuser is blowing all things out of proportion?

It's like Senator McCarthy writing about communism, ludicrously one sided yet people swallow it as truth because, well, pick your reason:
- He's disabled and we all know the sun shines out of their ass
- He has an MBE
- Reinforcing stereotypes about poor TOCs
- And their staff by extension
