I have been sitting here for quite a while now, waiting for “inspiration”. I’ve looked at all the newspaper websites, trawled the “ether” looking for something interesting, and so far; nothing.

There are the usual stories, unemployment expected to be over two million, but that is not a surprise, just a damming comment on the government.

The usual bullying from the “health experts”-lose weight, don’t smoke, don’t drink, don’t breathe, don’t enjoy yourself, become a vegan, don’t use electricity or gas, don’t drive your car, but the good news is that eggs are good for you.

Apparently we are running out of water due to the increase of world population and growing demand Solution for the world's water woes , so it seems that sex will be the next thing we are told to stop doing.

But dear old Boris Johnson doesn’t give a crap about the environment because he has quashed the congestion charge of £25 for high polluting vehicles.

It also seems that there was an “Energy Saving Day” back in 2008, never heard about it, and it seems that no one else had because there was no difference in energy consumption.

The “British jobs for British workers” debacle is still going on Fresh protest over foreign labour Unite and GMB are claiming 850 jobs on contracts at the Nottinghamshire site in Staythorpe will be denied to local workers, while in Kent, 450 jobs will be similarly affected.

Tube workers are up in arms over job losses Tube staff protest over job cuts

RMT general secretary Bob Crow said there is "no way" that job losses on the scale planned by TfL can be implemented without affecting services.

"It is scandalous that loyal Tube workers doing their best to provide a service to the public should have to pay with their jobs for a financial crisis that is none of their making."

Join the club Bob.

Managing director of Birmingham City Karren Brady has apparently been re-arrested over a corruption inquiry. Brady denies involvement in fraud

So you see there is not a lot to write about today, still, the sun is shining, the birds are coughing and I think I will go for a walk and see if inspiration strikes.
But if you are still interested take a look at the Angus blogs on NHS Behind the headlines you never know.

“Scientists announced today that they have discovered a cure for apathy. However, they claim no one has shown the slightest interest in it”. George Carlin
