BBC Scotland, advertising their timid wee pals at Disclosure, tell us:
Scots with learning disabilities and autism have been locked in secure hospitals and psychiatric wards for decades, a BBC investigation has found. They remain unable to get out despite [Labour] Scottish ministers saying 22 years ago that they should be living independently in the community.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-62477095
They find 40, interview 4, 0.0026% of the estimated 150 000 living in Scotland with learning difficulties or autism
I know, 99.9% isn’t 100% and I recognise that even one wrongly kept in those conditions is a personal tragedy but, in a system of such size, can a less than 0.1% failure rate really be national news?
