Brexit y los Jóvenes Británicos

NIGEL FARAGE   La mayoría de jóvenes británicos quiere que la UE sea parte de su futuro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxnqgqOsyJk La salida del Reino Unido de la UE tendrá consecuencias para este país, especialmente para los jóvenes. Explica de qué manera crees que afectará a los jóvenes y al país en general. En tu opinión: ¿por qué crees que la gente votó a favor del Brexit?   Brexit es la decisión del publico británico que ha votado sobre el tema en un referéndum que el país abandona la Unión Europea, su unión aduanera, su libre circulación de personas y sus normas comerciales. Es una decisión muy polémica y no necesariamente ha sido un voto justo porque los jóvenes que votaron abrumadoramente “permanecer” en Europa. Fue la generación antigua de la población y los habitantes de las zonas rurales que votaron a favor de “dejar” y la población joven y urbana estaba a favor de la UE. Hay consecuencias previsibles para los jóvenes, ya que ya no hay viajar libremente por toda Europa en pasaportes británicos ni vivir y trabajar tan fácilmente en el extranjero. Además, tal vez el programa de intercambio Erasmus para la educación universitaria puede verse afectado, aunque se está haciendo mucho para garantizar que Erasmus no se vea afectado por el resultado del referéndum. Creo que en general la gente del Reino Unido sufrirá a través de Brexit. El costo de la vida aumentará. Habrá una notable falta de habitantes multiculturales de Europa que viven en el Reino Unido, lo que conduce a un déficit cultural. Y, lo que es más sorprendente, el voto puede llevar a más votos y la decisión de salir de Europa podría preceder a una ruptura más ominosa del Reino Unido con Escocia, Irlanda del Norte y Gales declarando la independencia. Pienso que la gente decidió por una serie de factores. La campaña de políticos polémicos como Nigel Farage fue muy astuta. El pueblo británico, especialmente a la luz del terrorismo actual, tiene un temor natural a la inmigración. A la gente se le dijo que el dinero ahorrado se gastan en hospitales, aunque sea ha sido expuesto como una mentira. Había mucha confusión sobre Europa y muchas personas no eran realmente conscientes de los efectos de Brexit. Incluso hoy nadie es consciente de lo que realmente resultará de la ruptura definitiva que se produjera cuando finalmente se invocan el artículo 50 del Tratado…

Brexit and Mental Health

brexit

Brexit, like it or not is a reality. 54% of the public voted in a referendum for us to leave the EU. I watched with despair as events unfolded and was almost praying for us to stay in as I feared that a Brexit decision could really send my End Of Terror situation spiralling out of control. Post-Brexit, if I believed in restricting people’s liberties for thought crime and nowt else and I had the power as a psychiatrist, then maybe I’d be sentencing 54% of the population for section detainment in mental hospitals for making a completely irrational decision in voting, a decision I believe that long term will make the entire UK suffer, economically, politically and more importantly, to End Of Terror, within the mental health system. Why the big fear, you may ask? Firstly, one of the core components of EU membership is that EU citizens have access to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. This court, although I’ve never used it personally, acts as a safeguard for human rights. I’ve always dreamed of getting over to Strasbourg and felt that it would be one of the only places in which to get justice for End Of Terror. I will never realise that goal. But,many good things have come from Strasbourg over the years and indirectly it has safeguarded all those unnecessarily under the cosh, detained in UK mental health institutions. One piece of legislation that has been delivered through the presence of the EU Human Rights Court, is our own country’s Human Rights Act (1998). This Act came into being under the supervision of the Tony Blair government and basically enshrined EU Human Rights legislation into British Law. I have always felt that the Human Rights Act is incompatible with the Mental Health Act. The fundamental freedoms it enshrines are usurped once the Mental Health Act is invoked. I have constantly tried to argue a Human Rights case for myself, even in the Mental Health Tribunal Courts, quoting the United Nations Universal Declaration on Human Rights and referring to Strasbourg and indeed the Human Rights Act. Most debate, however, falls on deaf ears, and the tribunal courts tend to favour the misplaced incorrect mindset of Mental Health Workers who generally claim that the Mental Health Act is more important than any human rights legislation and overrides it. Treatment against consent is my main bugbear…

Immigrant Doctors on the NHS: A Good Thing or Bad Thing?

nigel farage

Not wanting to sound the horn or anything, but: PEOPLE, THERE IS A GENERAL ELECTION COMING UP! Come May unless you adhere to Russell Brand’s non-voting strategy, then you could well be heading to the polling booth. We heard of ‘weaponising the NHS in the buildup and it looks like a weird old forthcoming election with the rise of UKIP and some pretty unsettling times here in the UK and indeed in the wider world. I put a picture of Farage on this post as I have heard time and time again people citing immigration as a key issue. I am very pro-European in essence. As a Translation student and a man with a passion for foreign languages, I embrace the ‘otherness’ of cultures from abroad. I think that in expelling immigrants and abandoning the European we would instantly be cats back into the stone age. Immigration brings us a net benefit in terms of capital, cultural diversity and skills in the workplace, plus it would be rather difficult to study foreign languages in the education sector if all foreigners are thrown out à la Farage. But, politics aside, immigration is a real issue. We hear of how our NHS is full of nurses and doctors from abroad. In fact, I believe that I am correct in saying that proportionally, the NHS employs more foreign workers than the average organisation. I think that in healthcare, some of my pro-immigration views do distort. I can especially remember when my dying grandmother was in hospital. She came from a pre 1960s immigration boom generation. She was supporting an RAF pilot during WW2 and part of the incredible effort made by home soil women during that conflict. Her values and ideas were very old-fashioned and quite a bit different from my own. I felt a bit ashamed when she was openly cursing foreign NHS workers during her treatment. I found it a little rude, but, who am I to judge? I come from a more tolerant generation whose values have been shaped by a different set of problems and I live in a more or less totally globalised world. I wonder though, how the older, often politically silent generation feel about their healthcare needs being attended to by foreigners. We are constantly told how our education and especially higher education system is among the best in the world. If that is the case,…
