Well just a big shout out to the NHS - burnt my hand when camping. In and out and treated in 15 mins with a letter for the referral in Bromley for Friday.

Bloody brilliant.

Oh and don't pour boiling water on your hands. It really hurts.

Easily solved. Don't go camping.

What with all this Covid review talk, I thought I’d see the current status of the review in Wales.

Their Govt has refused to have one.

Royal has just been to the hospital with his old man. Walked in on him having a stroke today! Ambulance was there within 30 mins and he was in the stroke unit at Salford within 40 mins of them turning up. He’s currently got plenty of nurses fussing over him which he’s happy about. Well done the NHS.

Has anyone ever met or known a civil servant? 

I don't think I have 

I'm not even sure what they do

My ex wife was a civil servant- grade A, just below a SCS.

They do an awful lot.

CS look after our tax money on the markets, comms, law, pr, admin, reception.

They make sure the cogs of our government run.

They are there to tell the truth as well.

Which can be a real pain. 🥰

You really believe that eh? FFS, we have no hope. Pull the fucking plug now and let the whole place sink.

Cheers all for the wishes. Luckily it looks like it was only a minor stroke. He was sat up last night when I went to see him. His speech was still slurred but a massive improvement from when I first found him at home. Again big well done to the NHS staff.

If they are in London in all the government offices.

My ex was head of internal comms at tge DCMS and their office was on cockspur st just off trafalgar Square. But the government sold it so its now the Candadian Embassy building.

Basically all those massive buildings around Westminster.
