I think it's time for this fool to be dismissed as Health Secretary.

Top stroke doctors accuse Hunt of manipulation

I was admitted during a weekday but spent all week in. Saw the same doctors & nurses on duty as I did during the week.

Think DC needs one of his dyno rods for his health secretary.

I'm quoting my own post...."just my famous irony" at play here, or am I really that stupid in thinking politicians really know what they're doing?

Hunt "informing the UK that he is a top medical practioner"

Too late for Dyno Rod.

I always said this would be the way ahead, but if "Call Me Dave" has his wicked way, we'll be stuck in the EU which has only the one aim Ein volk, ein reich ein fuhrer & that means one currency as well...

Welsh banknotes for equal status :-)

...So what's the point as we'll have the Euro!

How long has these European threads being going?

It's about time those sitting on their ivory chairs wake up & realise that the citizens are not that dumb after all...

What took you so long?

Thank you, but it wasn't meant as an update on my life but one that shows that all technolgy even a pen & paper still have their uses, regardless of who uses it.

@Rob. Thanks :-)

Not to take anything away from the thread but it has highlighted one important fact - Airline staff.

Not quite sure of the year, but I believe it was within the last 3. Several British Airways staff were prosecuted for divulging personal details to their cronies who were burgling the properties of those going on holiday.

The next step would have been what has occured in Egypt.

One can only go so far with security!

And for me, I'd rather see if I can find ways to keep people around if they're willing or able to stay.

Part of my Luddite ways have to do with not wanting to discard old technology that still works.

Oh absolutely & the best I've found to be the most useful is a pen & paper.

Since leaving hospital, I have been logging everything that could assist the medics etc. Halfway through that I recalled the moment the paramedics arrived. They knew instantly I'd had a stroke so put me in a wheelchair & put me in the ambulance.

One paramedic said "you may want this" & grabbed my phone & usb cable. Didn't think much about that, & understandly why :-)

New year's eve phone went dead. Fortunately the bedside tv had a usb socket so wasn't too long before phone back in use.

Using just ONE App & just the one message, within an hour 31 people were aware of my situation & location - now if that had been a dumb phone instead of a smartphone?

Now back to the pen & paper: - Copied everything from computer to diary all the way from the 29th Dec to this morning. Several serious issues has arising from that stroke with one giving cause to call the emergency services this morning. On arrival, wasn't in a postion to boot up so passed the diary to a paramedic.

She got on the radio & a fast response ambulance turned up with a doctor on board. He read the diary & then gave an injection. This afternoon the relief was immense.

This is a good thread, it would be nice if it doesn't turn into a personal blog.

Oh & an expense dongle connected to a laptop? I've done that for numerous trips to London & back, total cost £0.00.

Just what the hell is wrong with this country?

Think it's time to have those in authority pull their fingers out of their rectum...

Drones near misses

"The government is leading efforts with international bodies to develop a stringent regulatory framework focusing on safety. There will be a public consultation before a government strategy is published in 2016."

...the public have no need to be consulted, this is a major breach of safety, so WHERE are the health & safety nazi's?

The torch is flaring up well, how long before it hits the the touch paper...

Germany to tighten up ayslum policies

...bit late closing the stable door Merkel, the horse has bolted.

...in other news today, DC comics made all the funny pages...

DC says "long way to go"

..Simple DC, tighten up on immigration in the same way that Europe is beginning to tighten up on ayslum control...

..but you haven't the guts have you?

How much are your rich buddies paying you to allow more cheap labour into the country?

All those lovely votes to keep your party in power.

How many directorships have you been promised the moment you step down?

Again If I hadn't seen or heard it...

It really is time the country got rid of this POS

...& on such a day? Are current politicians really that dumb & not aware of history? Today is Holocaust Memorial Day.

Or will they hold hands with the Middle East muppets & deny it ever happened?

I encourage the use of these words in any Intelligent Discussion. Only disagreeing with their correctness.

Ah, but whose version of correctness? & which version is in fact correct?

Here's a question: What do the stats say? Men or teenagers have killed the most?

I'd say men.

Well no spoilers from me, but so far, unless Episode 2 improves, I feel there is something missing compared to the original series...

..Mulder & Scully's zippiness, if that's the right word to use, I know something is missing & I have all 9 seasons on DVD.
