Strait jackets...

Amazon are currently allowing strait jackets to be sold for use on dementia patients. How can there be such rationale for them still to be the for sale?
The change campaign can be found at...

It's a prep. for when the Tories sell OUR NHS to Mr Trump and his asset strippers.

(Ex) "Doctor" Andrew Wakefield will be made CEO of what is left of THEIR NHS with a remit to dismantle Acute hospitals and replace them with mobile treatment facilities (Caravans) placed in Pay to Park carparks.
Fees will be Cash only, payable in advance of the consultation.
That minimum "Deposit" will be £2 000 with any excess held in a Slush fund pending the patient's next consultation.
Homoeopathic cures, herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, exercise, cupping and dietary therapy will be the only treatments available to NHS patients.

On a serious note brisinger I agree with you. It sounds a dangerous practise for those medically untrained to be even contemplating such action although I don’t know much about restraining patients and the reasons why.
I do know it is something impossible to stop now we have the internet. Even if a law was passed they would just call it something else and continue to sell them.

Probably a market for them in the sex dungeons. They must get them from somewhere.

1.0 Have you read Dean JONATHAN SWIFT's :
"A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People from Being a Burthen to their Parents, or the Country, and for Making them Beneficial to the Publick." ?

2.0 Also on a serious note:
2.1 (Ex) 'Dr' Wakefield did set up caravans in car parks in UK to administer, for a fee, single, separate shots of the NICE & BMC approved combined MMR vax.
2.2 Those few parents who realized that a second set of Vaxx was needed found that they couldn't find the roving caravans again.
Because Mr W had done a runner to the US/A to make an even larger fortune than he'd started in UK.

3.0 NHS England (NHSE) is handing £75 bn/a to the GP run, privatized CCGs who are outsourcing work, that was cross-subsidizing very expensive work in NHS Acute hospitals, to their cut-price, no-ICU, chums in the private sector.
3.1 That means that NHS hospitals are having to close vital sections or amalgamate with another Trust and close down to remain financially viable = major travel disruption to Consultants etc, and Patients and visitors.

Perhaps my 'omage, in a modest way, to Dean Swift, isn't all that far from the on-coming reality grinding its grizzly way towards us.

Trolls? Que?!

At the time of the OP Amazon Marketplace were selling these products. However, after pressure they released a statement saying that they would be removing them, which to their credit they subsequently did.

I was appalled when I saw the stuff on sale and signed the petition. Restraint techniques such as respect have to be learned and used properly.

Congratulations on your steady progress to your version of a Final Solution for the now unwanted burden on people such as yourself
1.0 Identify "The Other"
2.0 Stigmatize them - Untermenschen is widely accepted by your Far-Right comrades
3.0 Refer to them as Animals
4.0 Call them Vermin - cockroaches is a popular term.
5.0 To protect Humans, corral these vermin with 450 V wire-fences and armed guards

Good for you brisinger and well done. It shows the ordinary person can make a difference if they behave intelligently and are willing to do the work.

Yes well done bris.

I'll give Beach the benefit of the doubt he mis-posted otherwise it would make him a classic definition of a psychopath. Someone who lacks empathy and remorse, feel emotion only shallowly with egotistical traits.
