:blink: I've always thought most of the MPs were mentally ill anyway. :unsure:

 

Just a thought. Will an MP suffering dissociative identity disorder (multiple personalities) get to speak/vote several times on any given topic?

Will he shout himself down when speaking in the commons? :unsure:

Will he be able to stand against himself at election time? :unsure:

Will he be able to put in several claims for the same expenses? :unsure:

What do they class as having been 'mentally ill' Wolfie?

 

I’ve not seen whatever you are referring to but 'Mental illness' is a global term these days and it comes in many forms and has many names and can happen to anyone for a wide variety of reasons.

 

Stress, depression, anxiety, nervous breakdown blah blah blah all come under the 'mental illness' category and many of these can be triggered by all sorts of things.

 

Depending on the cause and the type of the 'mental illness' there is no reason WHY just because it’s on someone's medical records show that they have suffered from some form of ‘metal heath problem’ that it should ever make a difference to what they do as long as the person has overcome it of course or is in the process of doing so.

 

Obviously there are the more severe sorts of 'Mental Illness' though.

 

I was going to make light of it and say that many people on here seem to suffer from a form of mental illness at times but then I thought better of it :oops:<_<

A course of iron pills should fix it, or maybe it's a zinc deficiency. How about a copper jab in the rr's....? That will work wonders! Or is there too much gold content in the toenails? :wink::lol::lol::lol:

Would your board an aircraft Florence knowing that the captain had previously suffered from a 'mental health problem'. :unsure:

No, I wouldn't, simply because I have decided that my flying days are over. I got so fed up with the long waits in airports. No patience for it now. :wink::lol:

Anyway, me ould diggler, I was just having a laugh at Dizzy's typographical error. :roll::lol:

Would all depend on what the "mental health " problem was and how it affected him.

 

if it was OCD then he would probably be one of the best pilots to fly with as you would be certain that all the safety and pre-flight checks had been carried out meticulously. If it was one who was obsessed with air craft crashing then probably not a good idea.

 

Many years back I had the misfortune of suffering an almost complete breakdown due to stress. For the first 12 months it was like I was a zombie and I felt as if my brain had gone on holiday without me. I had extreme mood swings (non violent I must add) and severe panic attacks at the slightest things such as the phone ringing. I was very wary of anybody that i did not know and would often stay in the house rather than even attempt to go to the local shop.

 

Fortunately all that is behind me due to a loving wife and the support of friends and family. Since than I have had a job as a shop assistant (which I was very good at to my own surprise) and more recently as a passenger escort on disabled buses,something that during my illness I would have gone almost catatonic just thinking about.

 

What has come out of it for me is that I am now very laid back in my approach to just about everything and very little seems to annoy me. (if I was any more laid back i would be standing on my head). anyhow a mental illness does not exclude one from holding down a job, even a responsible job,have to stop now as the straps need tightening on teh straightjacket as they are catching on the keyboard and making it difficult to type.

 

On a side note I may stand at the next election for the innit for the money party. :blink:
