    4000% rise in complaints written about the hospital being private rather than public.

    Or, in a less biased and agenda filled way of writing it they received 215 complaints this year compared to 180 last year.

    Sadly that's a meaningless difference, especially without detail about the complaints.

    Fair enough, numbers are a long way from being my bag =)
    Keep pointing these things out, because there's plenty of genuine shit out there without having to make any up. I'll take a bigger pinch of salt with that guy next time.

    Two blogs I'd like to draw attention to today.

    One by James

    One by SteelRiverBoy

    Both are serving police officers. I've spoken to both a good deal and met one of them in person. They are good men doing a fairly thankless job and like many, many officers, are both extremely worried by how bad things might get for us if the cuts continue.

    I positively encourage you to share the links.

    How does modern China finance their public services so differently then?

    Can someone be Star Magic and Madgod?

    Dunno, but I saw George Clooney having real trouble with his fishing boat just over there.

    It was because he was going to reveal the existence of aliens, everyone knows that.

    Every time this thread pops up I automatically think have they not done this yet? What's taking so long.

    Last I heard, Kennedy was living in a retirement home with Elvis doing battle against an ancient Egyptian mummy.

    Oddly enough Thailand is another country with a reasonable amount of liquid capital rather than debts.

    Not sure I follow what you mean when you distinguish between external debt and domestic debt.

    So 98% of Thailand's government debt is held by Thai citizens?

    I didn't know that although it doesn't surprise me. Not sure how it answers Dodgy's point though as it would still be classed as Government debt though.

    Oh and hello again Madgod.

    I posted a bit about the homeopathy thing in the general politics thread (I think it was there, anyway).

    I think a lot of long-standing ideological chickens are trying to come home to roost. Cameron, for example and the Sheehy report - it failed before, he's trying again. Reality does not, as you say, appear to impact him on the matter.

    It's like the country is in the hands of the worst sort of middle management. They don't understand the work on the floor that they're exercising changes over but they have their own ideas and they're going to run with it. They ignore all advice and warnings from people in the field. They're not listening to doctors, police, fire chiefs, education professionals, military commanders, etc - and they're sure as shit not listening to us.
