A few years ago Colin Barnes and myself were asked to write a discussion paper on what was happening to the disabled people’s movement in Britain for Coalition, the journal of the Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People (GMCDP) (2006). This we did, but it did not generate the kind of debate that Coalition had hoped for. Sometime later, I met Vic Finkelstein when we were both in hospital and he told me he had written a detailed response, but that the Manchester Coalition were having difficulties publishing it. He sent us both copies and it was posted on the Disability Archive at the University of Leeds. I also suggested to him that it would be good to include it in the second edition of this book and he agreed.
