Just discovered another ‘employee blog’, opera singer Geraldine McGreevy. It’s just one part of her personal website, although for some reason the blog isn’t linked from the larger site. I mention this partly because I know absolutely nothing about opera, and partly because she name-checked me on the UK bloggers social mailing list.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned the Factcheck website before – it is something that the political blogges should be doing, but instead is part of the Channel 4 news website. They check all the claims that the political parties make during the election. I wonder if they’ll continue doing this after the election…
If not – I sense an opening for a new blog.
Here is their analysis of the ‘MRSA’ crisis, pretty much correct as I see it, although they don’t mention that MRSA is epidemic in the community, and that ‘Modern Matrons’ tend to be busy doing paperwork rather than making sure the wards are clean.
My solution? Automatic maximum sentencing for people who assault the Emergency services. I’m sure that “Bystander” could comment on this (If you live in England and haven’t seen this site yet, go there now).
I have been reliably informed that there is a place in East London that you can take injured animals. It’s the “Goddards Veterinary Group” in Wanstead, phone number of 0208 989 7744. I did think of this, on the night, but when I mentioned it to the RSPCA, they’d not heard of it – so I thought it had been closed down.
Update:'Bystander' has answered my question. While I might not agree 100%, I can see his point of view.
