Hard, shallow and crusty with a lack of warmth at the Castle this morn (just like the Piss Poor Policies Millionaires Club Coalition), his Maj has decided that he will wait until spring before he ventures out again and the butler is up to his knees in alcohol soaked, fat teenagers.
La grippe is making me feel a lot hoarse, and I have this urge to kiss people on both cheeks-up or down.
Allegedly the NHS faces a £15.7 billion bill to settle a rising number of clinical negligence claims.
The money has been signed off to pay for the care in future years of tens of thousands of patients who have suffered due to blunders in Britain’s hospitals.
Last year, more than 8,500 clinical negligence claims were received by the NHS, an increase of more than 30 per cent on 2009/10.
This clinical negligence bill is a calculation, based on the number of claims the NHS believes it will not be able to defend, the severity of the claimed errors and how much a victim would be paid out for these mistakes.
It therefore includes an estimate of the cost of mistakes that have not yet been claimed for.
Officials admit that the £15.7 billion compensation bill could be an underestimate if the NHS loses more cases than predicted.
Here’s an idea-why not make the knobhead “doctors” who kill and maim patients because of their errors personally liable....
The Mona Lisa at the Prado in Madrid was thought to be just another copy, with added eyebrows and an odd black background.
But curators at Spain's national art museum yesterday announced that the painting was actually executed by an artist in Leonardo da Vinci's workshop at the same time as the original.
The copy has belonged to the museum at least since the 1666, first as part of the royal collection and then as a state treasure. It was first thought to have been produced by a Flemish hand after da Vinci's death. Then it was believed to be a later Italian copy.
But is it art?
According to The Atlantic, roughly 3,500 females regularly change from their traditional garb to dress the part of high-kicking, wall-climbing, metal star-throwing fighters.
That’ll put the wind up Silly Billy Hague...
A classic Ferrari has become the most expensive car ever sold in Britain - changing hands for £20.2million.
The legendary Ferrari 250 GTO is the world’s most sought-after car, especially as there were only 39 models built between 1962 and 1964.
This 1963 model - number 5095 - is believed to have been sold by British businessman Jon Hunt, who bought it in 2008 for what was then world-record at £15.7million.
When it was launched in the 1960s by Enzo Ferrari, the 250 GTO came with a price-tag of a relatively small £6,000.
The 250 GTO was fitted with a 3-litre V12 engine developing 300bhp - meaning a 0-60mph time of 6.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 174mph.
Wonder how much I could get for the Honda.....
An Israeli geneticist, Avigdor Cahaner, created the world’s first featherless chicken at the genetics faculty at the Rehovot Agronomy Institute near Tel Aviv, Israel. The bare-skinned bird was created by cross breeding a broiler with a species that has a featherless neck.
The idea behind the development of this naked bird is that it will create a more ‘convenient’ and energy efficient chicken which can live in warm countries where feathered chickens don’t do well and cooling systems are too expensive to be commonly affordable. And of course, the bird doesn’t require plucking, saving additional money in processing plants.
Some useless objects.
