Counsel Journal

counselmagazine.jpgThis website has just been mentioned in the Counsel. Counsel is the Journal of the Bar of England and Wales.

Unfortunately the header is titled ‘aurally impaired’ which is a new one. Personally I detest any label relating to impairment, as it has undertones of damaged goods, as opposed to the celebration of diversity. The Press Release that went out was clear that we wanted to be referred to as Deaf. Sometimes I wonder whether people change such language, because they are trying to be politically correct, and having the opposite of the intended effect.

That aside, this is good publicity for this site, and we hope we can attract more members plus interest because of it. If not, at least make a statement that we are out there.
