MPs’ Expenses Scandal

Just when you had thought the MPs’ expenses scandal had gone away.... well it probably has now. For good: MPs’ expenses: official records from scandal-hit era have been destroyed  :angry:
 
Remind me, what date is it this Wednesday? <_<


UK has most breweries per head of population

11 September 2014 - 03:08 PM

I thought I'd post some good news for a change. According to the latest edition of CAMRA'S Good Beer Guide the UK has the largest number of breweries per head of population in the world. It also points out that real ale is bucking the trend in a declining drinks market taking an ever increasing share year on year. A far cry from my early drinking days back in the late 1970s when a hand pump was a rare thing to see in a pub.

Oh, and my local has made it into the last 16 of their Pub of the Year for this year for the second time running. :)

Interesting blog from an American Doctor who, reluctantly, had to "resort" to using the NHS. http://drjengunter.w...emergency-room/

Some good comments as well.
