    Interesting film.

    (Unfortunately, ‘legal corruption’ seems par for the course for our political class.)

    Yeah that’s a good video, politicians involved in setting up ‘independent’ think tanks has always seemed a tad strange to me.

    And which political leader warned that “secret corporate lobbying, like the expenses scandal, goes to the heart of why people are so fed up with politics”? Ed Milliband? No. David Cameron, so maybe the present government are alive to it dangers.

    The British Medical Association has weighed in on Prime Minister David Cameron’s health care proposals for 2011.                   

    The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.                                     

    The Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but the neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.   

    The Obstetricians felt they were all labouring under a misconception.

    Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.

    Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the Paediatricians said, “Oh, Grow up!”                                             

    The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.                           

    Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing. The ENT specialists wouldn’t hear of it.                                   

    The pharmacists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, “This puts a whole new face on the matter….”

    The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.                               

    The Anaesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.                         

    In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the arseholes in London .                                 

    Since then the Vasectomy surgeons have expressed concerns that the cuts would affect men in a very sensitive area – but the other surgeons thought they were talking bollocks

     
    I thank you. I’m here all week. Try the veal.
