    I have been working on that for the last few days. It’s now finished ! Other sizes and media types are on my site.

    Just a bit of background as to what inspired me. I have long been aware of a lack of common sense comparisons to what abusive psychiatry gets up to. I already made a comparison to the airline industry regulation, regulation that is lacking or non-existent in the psychiatric industry. Then I started reading Whitaker’s book Anatomy of an Epidemic. I’d put this off for a long time as I knew I would find it hard going simply because anything that so precisely proves that scandal here can make me angry. I also live in an area where there is a local Lifeboat Station. I have been interested in the work of Life Guards on the beach here in the summer. So I started thinking, why not get fundamental about this ? Why do we teach children to cross the road ? Why do people put their life’s in danger to rescue swimmers in distress or a ship going down in a storm ? I think everyone knows the answer to that one, but the truth of that has completely escaped the psychiatric profession for decades.

    So I think anything that can draw attention to the problems here with humour is helpful !
