'Victorian morals & standards of care'
This episode was recorded on 7th December 2018 and it was researched earlier than this, unfortunately, due to serious health issues this episode took us a very long time to complete. Charlie is suffering from.
The episode covers:
Tory hypocrisy over medical cannabis and second sources of income.
Can we trust Matt Hancock (Secretary of State for Health and Social Care) and the tories do to anything about the inhuman treatment of people in ATU’s? (Assessment Treatment Centres).
Something positive section - A new UK print magazine celebrating disabled artists, activists, and influencers. Check out their website: https://outlnd.co.uk/
Confirming some of the facts we weren’t sure on at the time of recording:
The CQC is the care quality commission for all health and care in England, including, care homes, hospitals, GP services, and dental services.
British Sugar: colonial? We don’t think so.
There are only 5 countries free of external debt: Brunei, Liechtenstein, Niue, Palau, The British Virgin Islands.
We can confirm if a local council goes into debt it gets taken over by central government.
The Tate Modern in London is the 9th most visited museum in the world, no the most of the 6th.
