Insensitive Christmas Carols for the Mentally Disturbed
In this season of Christmas festivities, a magazine Marooned (from Cromwell House mental health facility in Eccles, Salford, UK) was to publish 'Christmas carols for the mentally disturbed' with the backing of help of social services department. It is now however been withdrawn due to the offensive humour and the insensitivity towards the psychiatric patients. Miss Camille, from Manchester, said: "I could not believe what I was reading. I was astonished that it could be so insensitive. I was angry that they could belittle people in that manner." A classic case of 'British humour' that has gone too far.
