A survey has raised concerns about the well-being of those suppose to steer collapsing Britain out of politically-induced chaos. It revealed that depression, distress and other mental conditions are more likely to affect members of the House of Commons than people with other jobs, including high-level ones.
Conservative MP and practicing psychiatrist of the National Health Service Dan Poulter has revealed that the result of his study on British MPs’ well-being “paint a worrying picture” of their mental health.
During the survey, 146 members of the House of Commons, which has 650 lawmakers, were asked about their mental condition and 62 of them (42%) confessed that they had “less than optimal mental ill-health”. Moreover, 34% of them (49) admitted to “probable mental ill-health”. Horrifyingly, Just one in four lawmakers, who filled in the questionnaire in December 2016, agreed that he/she had “no evidence of probable mental ill-health”.
The authors of the study compared MPs’ mental state with the total population as well as corporate managers and high-paid staffers to find out that lawmakers feel worthless, unhappy, and depressed on a larger scale. It is thought that much the same can be said for mainstream editors and journalists who work in close collaboration with politicians.
The researchers disturbingly conclude that lawmakers were losing sleep because of worry, were feeling less useful, were less capable of making decisions and were feeling under constant strain” than people in other groups. Apart from this, a larger proportion of them was “less able to face up to their problems, reported losing confidence in themselves”, the study, published in the journal BMJ Open said.
Poulter also suggested that the existing whip system also damages the MPs’ well-being, blaming the partisan, and occasionally confrontational and aggressive environment for it. At the same time, more than a half of the loopy respondents confessed that they would not discuss their problems with their party leadership, or did not know how to seek assistance in Parliament, although a special service has been set up there to solve such problems.
BEST POLITICAL QUOTE: “A professional politician is a professionally dishonest man. In order to get anywhere near the high office, he has to make so many compromises and submit to so many humiliations that he becomes indistinguishable from a streetwalker.” ~ American Essayist and Educator H. L. Mencken.
