Tuvalu


In the island nation of Tuvalu, overcrowding in the country’s mental institutions has resulted in bouncy castles being employed as padded cells. ‘Is almost a therapy,’ Dr Ompah told AAP. ‘They mad and you put them in bouncy castle maybe a week and then they not mad any more, almost.’ Madness is rife in Tuvalu. The country’s prime minister, William Telavi, told AAP last week, ‘Everyone mad here. Mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad. All mad. Quite mad. Mad, mad, mad, mad.’
