Nobody took the bait with my first thread so...
Are the practises used by the Company responsible for distribution of Qi* tickets discriminatory?
*It is appreciated that the company has no direct links with neither the show the production company nor Mr Fry.
It is an unfortunate fact that a very large minority of carers (or significant carer) in this country are not unpaid but under the age of majority.
Would it not be fair to say that to not allow these carees to socialise by participating in audiences for television recordings is discriminatory.
The BBC have stated on a number of occasions that they do not have a problem if a such a responsible person attends their shows recordings.
So why oh why is that embargo still in place.
Any responsible answers?

I'm struggling to understand where you are coming from BLWill.
I've attended many shows and I have a close relationship with the show. Are you suggesting that the "Applause Store" (Distributers) are in anyway biased towards disabled persons and their carers?
If this is the case I'd have to disagree, there have been many occasions where arrangements have been made by staff and security to allow those with different circumstances entry into the show.
Feel free to elaborate on the specifics of your enquiry.

Stephen: "Yes Natalie darling I am, although it's not a coffee cup, it's a teacup..."
*5 minute debate later*
Result: The contents of the cup do not determine the name of the cup. The cup is a cup/mug whether it contains tea/coffee/ribena/hot chocolate or any other beverage.

My significant person is 15 and therefore not entitled under that company's - and others - conditions too attend. I thought they had seen the light last year when they put the wrong age restriction on the emails, but alas no go...
... my point was exactly the opposite of your suggestion :-//
