Could this type of thing possibly work in the UK?

In the current political environment, definitely not. It wouldn't? happen.

It was trialled in the Netherlands and by most standards could be regarded as successful - but the scheme was discontinued after 4 years because...either I can't remember or I couldn't hear the rest - perils of listening whilst out on a bike.

Correction - it was in Canada in the 70s, discontinued after 4 years by a conservative govt, and there was no funding to analyse the results.

When someone did look at the results 30 years later they found that people didn't stop working. didn't spend all the money on drugs, crime went down, hospital admissions went down, mental health problems went down etc etc

Some people are already conducting personal trials. They've been to the doctors and told them they have fibromyalgia.
