  1. When it comes to tinder, you're better filling it in yourself.
  2. If its serious they will see you straight away, IME. I've never gone to hospital by ambulance, always got there under my own steam and always been seen ASAP.
  3. Indeed, most doctors were apposed to the NHS at it's inception. Bevin said he had to "stuff their mouths with gold" to get them onboard.
  4. I can never understand the way people equate privatising of parts of the NHS with privatising the railways, water, gas, post office etc? I don't ever recall not being charged for a rail ticket, water, gas, post etc, etc...... Surely the important principle regarding the NHS is that its free at the point of delivery. I really don't care who's providing the care, so long as its good. Much of the NHS has aways been provided by private contractors, most doctors are not employed by the NHS, they are self-employed and run their own Co's, contracted to the NHS. I think any government will have great difficulty trying to charge people for their health care, other than through taxation. Most folk just won't have it, IMHO.
  5. I have only ever had excellent service from the NHS. I've had 3 operations over 24 years due to work accidents. On each occasion I was seen immediately and operated on the following day. The aftercare has aways been excellent. My 4 children were all delivered by the NHS and again excellent care was given. I have on virtually every occasion I have interacted with the NHS I have seen lazy, often obese staff doing very little. And members of the public not doing as asked or having unrealistic expectations.

    Pretty sure that’s Pop, probably just a cunning plan to get shut😂
  7. Yeah, tend to have very poor unions with included bark, need to take care when climbing them, its very easy to accidentally snap off quite large limbs, which can tear down the stem badly.
  8. He also wants a 'reserve' chipper.
  9. He compared the UK to the Hulk, not himself. The BBC were miss quoting this most of the day yesterday, until later in the day when they finally gave the correct quote. Having to make things up suggests a lack of genuine substance to the remoaners arguments, IMO.
  10. 30 pieces of silver................... Sorry, couldn't resist, I did try, honest.🙂
  11. When rules or the law become ridiculous people begin to ignore them, this then leads to zero respect for the rules/law, which then leads people ignoring the rules or laws they used to follow. Because you're already breaking the rules, as you "may as well be hung for asheep as a lamb". So something designed to increase safety could well have the opposite affect, IMO.
  12. Whats really sad is you constantly following him round, have a go at him. You don't like him, we get that, your not alone. But please.............
  13. Do you really not see that their showing such lack of confidence in themselves will sow seeds of doubt in the minds of the voters? I think their limited success last time was mostly down to their immense self belief, well thats well and truly gone now.
  14. Not a chance, IMO, IRATA has 0 domestic market. Mrs Muggins don’t get rope access lads in to paint her house. Our industries have virtually nothing in common, IMO.
