This is not how it was meant to be, Disability Discrimination Act

You have not even applied for the job.
They call you because they have found your CV under a rock and think you look good.
You do look good.
They invite you to interview.
You accept.
During the course of the acceptance, you mention you are disabled.
They call you back the next day and check you really do want to come for interview because you have said you are disabled and they think you should know the job is Very Physical.
You say that is fine, all your jobs are very physical.
They say, "I don't understand how it would work."
You threaten to stab them with knives*
They call back an hour later and cancel the interview for 'unavoidable' reasons.
They promise they will call back.
You do not hold your breath.


*You don't really

Fuck them. Some people are ignorant and have poor judgement. Unfortunately, no amount of legislation can change that.

I'm sorry you have to experience it first hand.
