Just for the record, here's the questions Nanny will be asking you before she deigns to dole out your rationed treatment:
- Has anybody hurt or threatened you?
- Have you ever felt controlled or always criticised?
- Have you been asked to do anything sexual that you didn't want to do?
UPDATE 1: Has anyone else noticed the presumption of guilt inherent in this -- the reversal of the presumption of innocence, which is the proper role of the state when it comes to justice?
UPDATE 2: Peter McC answers all three questions in the positive, and provides plenty of evidence for his abuse [hat tip DPF]. Shocking reading. Reminds me of this You Tube ad. Shocking watching.
UPDATE 3: Stephen Franks offers hope rather than advice, but the thought is just as pointed:
I hope hospital staff are “abused” in the original sense of that word, by women who tell them to mind their own business. All involved should revolt against being used. This policy inflicts indignity on everyone rather than face the failure of 40 years of social policy... Surely we must be reaching a nadir of some sort. Only two generations ago we were noted for stoic self reliance. Now every one in “the community” must bear the guilt and responsibility for individual viciousness. The collectivists will twist in any direction rather than enforce personal responsibility.Superb commentary well worth reading in full, not least for the link he highlights between welfare, racism and abuse.
