Mental ill-health: asking why

My contribution to the debate on mental health at TUC Disabled Workers' Conference 2017:

I'm speaking in support of all the motions on mental health, but especially the one from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists, as that is the one that acknowledges that workplaces are causing mental distress.

There is now a lot more talking about mental health than there used to be. That is very welcome.

That's a Tory

(To the tune of Dean Martin's That's Amore)

There's a knock at the door

- That's a Tory
With a suit, blue rosette
And a snarl, you can bet
- That's a Tory
When they hurt the disabled
Say they're strong and they're stable
- Some story!
When they tell you to blame the distressed and the lame
- That's a Tory!
