Tomorrow will be the first time I'll be watching "rugby" sevens and actually be able to remove the quotation marks as PNG will be there representing rugby league.  The PNG v Samoa game will be a bit of a cracker I think.

A good night of watching the games.  First, the netball with Scotland playing was a delight to watch then I really enjoyed watching the women's squash.  The game between Laura Massaro of England and Nicolette Fernandes of Guyana was particularly easy on the eye.


In Topic: The Lib Dems and self-congratulation

The thing that really winds me up is that they're doing things way beyond that that had the nation up in arms in Thatcher's time.  For example, in our area nearly 20% of mental health beds have been cut in two years (Norfolk and Suffolk mental health trust had 600 beds in 2012 but cut this to 481 by 2014) yet no-one seems to care, it's austerity after all and we need to save our pennies.

 

The Coalition have been lucky with the very low interest rates meaning that there's a big old rump of people who are quite comfortable now and aren't feeling the pinch anywhere near the way those impacted by the sharpest cuts have been.  If we had even scratching the interest rates of the early 1990s then we'd be seeing far more dissatisfaction...

Ahhh, a reminiscing look at the army when it was about having a paid adventure training lifestyle rather than having to actually go shoot people and be shot at.

 

 

And that's when we had flying tanks...
