Well, scotty, the boy is in UK now, thanks to the hypnotherapis Russell Hemmings, who hypnotised the boy in the plane and managed to bring him home.

That has got to be one of the most ridiculous stories that I have ever read.

I agree with VS. That's simply ludicrous. How much do sleeping pills cost, for heaven's sake? Mountain out of molehill.

Increasingly in Ukania, children tell adults what to do. These are surely the End Times !

Utter nonsense! Mind you it's getting pretty cold back home, so stay put till spring.

The parents are insane! The boy looks very healthy to me- plus he seems to enjoy going off to the malls, being on Facebook, etc, etc.

Intriguing question- what's happening with his schooling? Or he is going to be another one on the 'dole queue' when he finally gets back?

Or cheaper…how about a swift punch in the face!

There! I said it.

The situation has reached an expensive impasse for Mr Thompson, 63, who risks bankruptcy as he tries to reconcile his son’s condition with his responsibility to his distraught wife Pauline, 49, and daughter Chloe, 17, who are back at the family home in Weston-super-Mare.


Shocked Ridiculousness.
