    Code red or code brown?

    Taking all things in to account you're screwed at every turn. I'm just going to sit back and watch the inevitable train smash. Good luck - you're going to need it.

    Private medical care terminated at Noble's!

    Does your government want to attract competent medical staff and keep them? Very uncertain pensions, now no room for private medicine and all the benefits that brings to medical staff and patients alike? Crazy.

    Time To Change The Law On Drugs?

    I would hardly call the use of drugs under such circumstances recreational.

    A thing doesn't need to have directly affected someone for them to loath and detest it and those immoral fools attempting to justify it. The recreational use of psychoactive substances is indicative of selfishness, hedonism and weak will in the drug abusers quite apart from criminality. I simply can understand why anyone would want anything to do with such people let alone enter into a relationship with such fools.

    Some prices must be paid especially when the benefit outweighs the cost. I deplore and detest weak and hedonistic people who their actions weaken society. I have a number of properties that I rent and while I will turn a blind eye to some small evidence of drink I always evict on the spot for any evidence of drug use or involvement AND inform the police. For me the best outcome is to see users and dealers quite literally on the street with nowhere to go. I don't do empathy or sympathy. Filth belong in the gutter.

    My POINT is based on decent morals and decent clean living. In any case being born in a swamp of immorality where decency exists only in rare patches is hardly lucky.

    Because we provide everything for free to supposed asylum seekers and assorted low life. Very few of these burglars are genuine asylum seekers, most are scum.

    Interestingly over here there is a growing grass roots opposition to drug use and even more so drug dealers even in the less decent parts of major towns. Drug dealers being shopped to the police by members of the public are on the rise in addition to the young people who are also kicking back against the drug scene dobbing them in. On the down side the scum in London are trying to set up hubs outside the scum parts of London but increasingly they're failing as decent people are identifying them as they crop up especially as an increase in the numbers of the users are low life and assorted immigrants. So there IS hope that decency will overcome stupid hedonists, criminals, and low life scum. Encouraging this will help big time, ignoring it or acquiesce to the criminality will not.

    The repercussions of drug use are even worse. Could it happen here? One can but hope.

    Only in his approach to drugs.

    It does work in countries that play real hard ball. The regime imposed by Duterte in The Philippines is proving it.

    Very true but their customer base would be significantly reduced by installing raw fear of the consequences of being discovered in the customers. And I do mean fear. Hardtime in hard prison, long term consequences of being discovered, exclusion from certain employment, cancellation of driving licenses, confiscation of property up to and including houses - and more. Not time to get soft with drug CRIMINALS but to get incredibly HARD.

    Persecute both. They rely on each other. Make dealing AND using drugs create a raw fear of the consequences. And I do mean persecute.

    Then jail them for years or even decades in hard no frills prisons. If they can afford the crap which they loosen themselves then they have the cash to pay fines.

    Toilet Tax - this year's changes

    FWIW our water rates (unmetered) when added to our waste rates amount to around £800 per year. It galls me that our waste water charges include a surcharge for having a large garden.
