Mental health issues

EVERYONE, no matter their political hue must hope that Iris Robinson recovers from her current mental health issues.

It has, however, raised the issue of MPs with mental health problems. Under current legislation an MP with a mental illness can be booted out.

Various charities have rightly pointed this out as wrong. Not only is it discriminatory towards a swathe of the population, but any competent psychiatrist looking at the behaviour of out MPs might decide that the booing, hear, hear shouting lot should be sectioned.
