stuck in the royal borough of kensington and chelsea, Could my neighbors in Westminster go and check on the queen to see if she is O.k. seeing as the tax on having bedrooms you don't use come into force today, I don't want to see a old lady with hundred of spare bedrooms in Buckingham place, suffering. please make sure she is warm and well, or at least go to another of her palaces, with even more empty bedrooms. She is a old lady and we need to make sure that she survives this cold spell as she will be broke because of the tax on bedrooms she is not using.

As Winston Churchill said...that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried. It is now falling victim to what made Communism crumble...the fallacy that everyone is willing to share equally. Doctors come out with high debts but want to live a certain life style. Drug companies have investors to answer too. Patients want the best care available but don't want to pay for it. There is also a reluctance to shift from a care to prevention based medicine. All factors that make the present health-care system in all countries in trouble.
