What's New

Gerry Williams replied to richard jnw's discussion Do we need a hybrid payment system for the NHS to survive?
"The NHS is just like your first car.  Remember that you brought it and for a while it ran well.  Then something went wrong and it cost you quite a few bob to put it right.  Sometime later, something else went wrong and that cost a…"

"An excellent post Gerry - one that I can totally agree with.  Let's hope that 2013 instills some common sense - and a huge kick in the backside to those charged with managing these aspects for us. Happy New Year everyone."

This may surprise you....................

There may be some readers of this blog who are unaware that I am, in fact, a committed Christian and have been for some years now [Yeah! Hardly seems credible does it?].Anyway, some years ago, during the invasion of Iraq, we experienced a number of incidents concerning the deaths of westerners in Iraq at the hands of Islamic fundamentalists similar to recent events including the murder of the American…See More

I should have known better...............

Just to set out the basics: if you are reading this, I can safely assume that you are savvy with the Internet even if it is only to browse the millions of pages available.  It may well be that you are an experienced hand with the technology and have been using computers for over 30 years like me.  You can send emails, you might have spoken to [and seen] your grandchildren in Australia usingSkype; you probably have looked at…See More

"I'm with you Gerry - "Mission Creep" and the abysmal inability of any government to handle data make this, like the ID card fiasco, a non-starter.  Governments of all complexions appear to have a total inability to control ANY IT…"

A Lie Told Often Enough....................

"A lie told often enough becomes truth."  This quotation is attributed to both Lenin and Joseph Goebbels and nowhere is this truer today than in the repeated mantra of the Labour Government in respect of the proposed DNA database for all our UK citizens.  The lie in this case is, “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.”  The truth is that we all potentially have something to hide. The discovery of the DNA genome has led to significant medical advances over the last decade and…See More

Free at last..............

Today’s the day!  My last day as a wage slave and henceforward, I get to choose which jobs I want to take on and what I want to do – pretty much. I have now entered semi-retirement, resigning from my paid employment not least because the thought of getting up at 5:30 am every morning this coming winter in more than flesh and blood can stand; getting up at the crack of sparrow-squeak will become a thing of the past although I expect it will take a few weeks to get used to it. By freeing myself…See More

Notice the difference.................

Like most of the rest of the country I have been watching the Olympics; perhaps "watching" is not quite the right word - I've been dipping in and out of the various events as my interest takes me and while I generally have only a passing interest in sport, I have observed something rather spectacular in all of the events that I have witnessed.In spite of being disqualified in one race, Victoria Pendleton picked herself…See More

Our Time in The Sun.............

It would seem, if BBC News reports are to believed [are they?], that huge numbers of people throughout the country are bemoaning government policies concerning welfare payments including housing benefit, Jobseekers Allowance and various other “benefits.”  The question is why this should be the case.

The British electorate were happy enough to dump Brown and his cronies when the full reality of the country’s…

Starbucks, Amazon & Google.......

And so it is that we drift, inevitably, towards the end of 2012 and the time has come to look back on the last year to see what has been learnt.

On that aspect alone, I would suggest that the answer is quite simply – Nothing.  There is an ancient quotation that goes, “Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.”  This has, wrongly, be attributed to Euripides but the…
