You couldn't make it up.......

On the other hand if it does help them understand the phenomenon and perhaps move towards helping these unfortunate people to stop it may well be a good thing.

Whilst that is a quite different question it is an interesting point, does the trcik cyclist, like the pet owner becomes like the pet, become like the patient.

well it does seem that the lunatics have eventually taken over the asylum,but what do they call self harm,someone with a cutthroat razor by their neck?

I've worked in a few help centres in my time and I know that depriving people of their coping mechanism, which self-hamr can be interpretted as, by making them go cold turkey often does do more harm than good.

What the NHS now needs to address is why self harm is on the rise and start making parents, guardians and kids more aware of it so all the misconceptions can be chucked out of the window.

I'm amazed that nothing's been done before now. After all there used to be kids in Ganges who self harmed because they couldn't cope: swallowing toxic substances like cleaning fluid, open safety pins, cutting themselves with razor blades. Did the andrew take any notice? Well it did if they ran away: it harmed them by giving them the dreaded cuts. Perhaps it should have tried finding out WHY they went on the Run in the first place? Well done NHS!
 
Before they invented trick cyclists nobody had any problems.




As for the NHS and the BBC ditty what a load of ballocks.



Reminds me of the take away the guns and nobody will kill each other super idea followers.

The old ignorance is bliss arguement.

Just wait til you or some one you know suffers from some mental problem, then you may well see the benefit in having a trick cyclist.

Which is fair enough on civvie street but when these tossers are doing it 3 times a year to get out of sea drafts they should be kicked out. Duty of care my arse.

So what happens if one of these patients is successful and tops themselves and their relatives seek redress.? Who would be liable ? Lack of Duty of Care would surely come into play then

Ah that is a wholly diferent question, but back in the 'good old days' that didn't happen, so I can't really give any advice.
