Prime Minister, Theresa May has promised to scrap the UK’s Mental Health Act. She wants us to believe that, despite her anti-rights track record she’s planning to remove the MHA because she champions the rights of people with mentally disordered people. Pull the other one, Theresa!
This proposal would remove peoples’ rights and abandon the most vulnerable at the time when they most need help. But then, Theresa isn’t really interested in rights. This is a cynical ploy to justify 7 consecutive years of tory cuts to mental health services.
This video explains why the Prime Minister’s appalling proposal misses the point of the Mental Health Act and demonstrates just why the conservatives earned the nickname ‘The nasty party’.
