    ....or any other interesting articles we may come across. Nothing too political, we all have different thoughts and feelings towards Brexit, Donald Trump and the NHS.

    Actor criticised for Martin Luther King tweet

    If you hadn't noticed, I am mixed race; Caucasian mother African father so stories and issues like this are close to my heart. But Rob Schneider is a fucking idiot.

    Sadly I think the next four years will be very devisive in America, politics everywhere is an act of walking carefully over eggshells. Trump thinks he can just storm through kicking them all to one side. When you consider recent events in America especially to do with race issues think I should think there will be riots in less than a year. Trump's attitude will be that he is not worried after all he and his family and friends won't be in the riots he won't give a damn about the poor Souls killed black or white.

    I fully agree hun and for me the worry of our NHS, I have a sick parent and the last ambulance call we made we were on there for 2hours waiting to go into A&E, where are we going? How many lives are going to be lost because of lack of funds and resources?

    The new story at the moment that makes me cringe is Nicola Sturgeon. A typical example of a politician whose whole policy is based around being anti someone else. Now it's the brexit thing that she's using as a lever to try and get what she wants. Agreed it's not just her decision and there are plenty of Scots people who don't want to leave the EU, but I just chuckle at the idea that she is saying that Scotland should be independent from England because Scott nationalists do not want English people making decisions upon how they live their lives. Instead they want another referendum so they can become independent (we will keep having them until you vote the right way) so that they can stay in the EU...... and have all the people of Europe tell them how to live their lives.....

    I'm an independent and Vote wherever my heart thinks I should go, one of the Labour politicians this week commented that the Torry plan is to make the National Health Service work so badly by underfunding and rule changes so that when you get angry you will agree that it should all be privatised. If that's so how dare they treat sick people as pawns in political plans.

    The Politics of England and America have always been very similar. They just voted in someone who whole heartedly believes that caring for your fellow citizens is bad and shouldn't be allowed instead he's thrown them back to the good old days of if you no money go away and die.... I'm a trained first aider for me not caring for everyone equally is a bit like me saying thats the first thing I should ask when I get called to give assistance to a heart attack victim is " have you paid for my services?".

    Just heard that one man has been handed a 7 year sentence and another man 5 years for that tipper crash in Bath that killed four people. Including a four year old. :(
    Good enough for them too. They knew the truck was in serious condition yet still used it.

    Apparently despite having a huge business Empire Donald Trump keeps losing money it's only that he has so much money to lose the keeps them afloat. You would be forgiven for wondering how or why he loses so much money? and also why he doesn't publish his tax returns? Maybe both are explained by this morning's revelation. He's going to make the Mexicans pay for the wall by taxing Mexican imports. So let me get this right... for every $100 of produce the Mexican sell he's going to add 20% tax. Making the American public pay $120 for it. $100 goes to the Mexicans and $20 goes to build the wall.... so Mr trump who's paying for the wall? Maybe he doesn't publish his tax returns because he doesn't know how to fill one in....
