Why deaf people should avoid at all costs focus group meetings, even international ones despite the option to travel. The sign wasn't there, the access was appaling and the translation gibberish.

A blind-deaf widower is having his guide dog – and also best friend – taken away because it has got too fat. Derek Beal said he will be a “prisoner in his own home” once his “wonderful companion” Paddy is taken away from him. Guide Dogs for the Blind is taking the drastic action over concerns the eight-year-old golden retriever is being overfed as his 82-year-old owner cannot see what he is eating.
Beal insists his best friend’s extra weight is because of passers-by giving him treats and the dog is only “slightly” overweight after taking him to the vet to check. The former catering manager, from Maidstone, Kent, said: “They’ve offered me no help to get around and no replacement if they take him away. “I’m blind and nearly deaf – it’s brutal.”
