Blind Ambition

‘DISCRIMANATION against the handicapped is a terrible thing. But strides have been made in bringing about equality between able bodied and disabled people.

And now, Alin Popescu, a blind 24-year-old Romanian, has done his bit to level out the playing field – by proving that he can be every bit as big an idiot as an able bodied lad.

“I just wanted to prove to myself that I could do anything I wanted despite my handicap,” says Popescu, who is now helping police with their enquires.

The local upholders of law and order want to know how Popescu happened to break into a car, start the ignition with a screwdriver and then set off down a busy road.

Less mysterious is how he came to career straight into a tree.

“I only crashed because I was not sure of the way home,” said the fearless campaigner.’
