Now what's he going to do - take expensive and more dangerous pharmaceutical pills often with unpleasant side-effects?
Seems to me that the Government favours those big companies over individuals, their rights, and plant remedies.
Human Rights include the Right to a Private Life: we can do whatever we want in our Private lives and the only justice that the authorities have - even the police - for interfering with that right is clearly written in the Act: that is if there is a risk to public health, public order, national security or the Rights of others - that it is against the law is itself not a justifiable reason.
Therefore the invasion of this man's private life is itself illegal, under Human Rights law - and it's about time that the judges took that into account.
