  1. The link leads to a very short article, and a proprietary BBC media player which doesn’t like the computer I’m using. So I take it, that in England, “sanctioned mental patients” are further “sanctioned” with loss of some benefits if they’re “non-compliant”. Or some such ridiculous non-sense. The whole English “mental health system” seems to be imploding under the weight of the LIES of the pseudoscience drug racket and means of social control known as psychiatry, – 21st Century Phrenology with potent neuro-toxins. I’m sorry that folks are being so abused by the system, but it seems to be an inevitable stage of collapse to a system built on greed and ignorance.
