    The Russian government is addressing the issue of too many road accidents by 'tightening medical controls' on who can drive. People barred from driving now include:

    People with 'sex disorders'
    People with 'pathological' gambling problems or problems with compulsive stealing.

    "The Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights called the new law "discriminatory". It said it would demand clarifications from the Russian Constitutional Court and seek support from international human rights organisations.

    But the Professional Drivers Union supported the move. "We have too many deaths on the road, and I believe toughening medical requirements for applicants is fully justified," said the union's head Alexander Kotov."

    "Fetishism, exhibitionism and voyeurism are also included as "mental disorders" now barring people from driving."

    Sad, but not unexpected. Perhaps someone can correct me but are Transgender people not considered mentally ill in this country? would that not have an impact on their ability to obtain a licence?

    he does, he's ****ing over the NHS, covering up his pedophile buddies in parliament, going ahead with fracking and covering up the data about how bad it is for the environment, mass surveillance of its population and continuation of war in iraq and afghanistan as well as drone strikes elsewhere.
    By my books, he deserves to rot in a cell.

    Due to the fact we are a very civilized country, not the most civilized in the world, I'll readily admit, but we are far from the worst!
