A big thanks to Dr Crippen for writing about what I was going to post about today. It means I can go back to sleep.
The short version is that there are some pillocks that don't want to have to look at the injured servicemen coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan.
It was drawn to my attention on one of the ambulance forums, partly because we have a fair number of ex-forces people in the ambulance service and partly because, while some of us may disagree with the purpose behind the wars, we do respect and honour the people on the ground actually doing the fighting for our political masters.
the other thing to post about is that, as you are probably aware, there is wide flooding around the UK at the moment. The British Red Cross have set up an appeal fund. If you have a spare couple of quid please head over there and donate to that or one of their other causes.
(…and now I head over to PC World to get something for my brother, then to Homebase to get a tonne of stone for my mother. Then I shall collapse back to sleep).
