    Guess this only applies to UK.

    What's wrong with UK hospitals?

    They are closing down alot of hospitals due to funding also stopping a load of treatments.

    Sorry for the rant but my Grandmother was very ill recently and we took her to the local hospital.

    We had to wait for 17 hours for her to see a doctor all because they closed down another hospital due to cost.


    The NHS is a mess

    Fuck the olympics in the UK. I swear I was the only one keeping my fingers crossed and hoping we wouldnt get it, yet none of my friends remember me saying it. It made no sense at all for us to host them. We're at war, our government is in a mess, we got an ancient transport system that cant cope with that shit, and I fucking knew it would be budgets blown and deadlines not met! The thing that gets me is we have over 3 million unemployed, they said it would generate jobs yet it's Polish a Lithuanian companies that were commissioned to build it so they flew in all their staff from their home lands.
    Mark my words that afterwards the olympics village will be a white elephant!

    It's a fucking joke!

    Our country has already siphoned off our arts funding for the 2010 Olympics.

    I have made a conscious effort to stay out of Vancouver for the next year!
