    'They blow up policemen,
    Or so I have heard,
    And blame it on Cromwell,
    Or William the Third!"

    On the subject of PC, I was at the zoo the other day and said, "Look, there's a mongoose" and I got told off. "Special Needs Goose" you've got to say now apparently...

    AM I STILL ALIVE?

    Just checking.......



    Yes I am.......





    I have never been so bored in my life until yesterday where we got the works charts facts and safety films. This miserable old cow was banging on about the dangers of this and that, we are adults not children! Get a load of this, if you cut yourself while clearing a fowled stapler you run the risk of blood poisoning! :eek: But when asked how many people had blood poisoning the answer was zero reported due there work in telling people the dangers. :rolleyes:

    You get the picture we were all bored to death with this crap. And we had to fill out a questionnaire and if you got under 70% you would have to resit the course again, no bloody thank you.

    Another one next week, which sounds less silly than this awful one was. How to avoid RSI & Back problems.

    I stopped getting asked to these type of courses at one job....I was on a leadership course, the anger management was fully booked apparantly.

    Me leadership.....Acting sgt RMP, what more could they need?

    Given crib sheet at beginning, with examples of great leaders...all in politics I might add, and asked to chose a leader I could aquaint with...obviously my choice to be discected later by some phsyoannalyst to see if I'm worth promoting...Ill state again, acting sgt RMP, what more do they need....I asked why no military examples on their own sheets....
    That would be antagonistic to some she said....
    What, And Gorbachov isnt then?
    I put Julian Thompson down...they said who? Chose again, I said cmdo bgd Falklands initial landing....
    No war related leaders allowed...
    OK...
    Santa....
    Santa, be serious.
    I am, he works to schedule, always gets job done, keeps workforce of elves and reindeers happy, global reach of a successful company.
    He isnt real.
    Neithers this course.
    We both avoided each other for rest of day. She sulked. I got put on list for anger management again. But I was sgt RMP, what anger?

    I think this has come about as employees are advised to take legal action over the most silly thing that has happen to them. So these courses are on the increase covering issues which look plain bonkers.

    I think the government should bring in a new pice of legislation known as the 'grow the hell up' law. It's fairly simple, if you try to take someone to court over something before the case begins it is read by a person known as an 'intelligent human being,' if at any point they laugh or refer to you as 'a moron' it shall be judged that the incident was caused by you being what is technically known as 'an idiot' and the case dismissed with you paying any costs.

    Who's behind me?

    From the very man who has Chancellor took away the Banking regulations back in 97/98 and now regrets that decision. The current government is to far busy throwing our money away on hair brain ideas to save the country.

    Meanwhile back at Super Browns place Super Brown works on his next remark on how he Super Brown saved the world. :rolleyes:

    As mentioned briefly in the article this Nurse has a history and was warned earlier about her actions. She was aware of the risks.
    Personaly I don't think it much of a problem but does that mean Muslim Nurses are to be allowed to push their faith whilst on the job?
    One of the reasons why religion should be kept out of areas where it isn't needed.
    The complaints came in from the people who were offered the prayers so it must have upset someone.

    Why the heck was she suspended, not as if she is a phantom poisoner. Once again the PC loons use a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

    Hasnt the British way always been in past, for someone to say....I'll pray for you....and the rest of us just to get on and ignore it.

    Unless she had a crucifix and holy water and was marching around the room shouting out, be gone Beelzibub and wetting me carptet, she can pray for me if she feels fit, I'd rather her not do it in the house though...Got the witches covern to think about..

    If she was Muslim and told me she would offer a prayer to Allah on my behalf, I'd accept that too..thanks very much...peace be upon you. But dont get your prayer mat out here please, its not Friday, oh it is..ok well if you cant get anywhere then I'll be in next room...cup of tea?

    Unless someones trying to convert me they can ask me by all means to join in prayer of whatever faith they personally belong to...Its my right though to say no thanks but you go ahead, maybe not in my living room at moment though...I'm expecting Pizza.

    Damn, that knock...its not the pizza man, its Jehovas Witness..I'm popular, everyone wants to pray for me....

    Just for the sake of clarification, the patient didn't complain, she mentioned it to another member of staff who reported it resulting in the nurses suspension. Part of the reason for the suspension seems to be that they weren't sure whether the patient objected or not and wanted to make sure no problems were caused whilst they worked it out.

    Still rather daft, I mean the nurse probably shouldn't have said it but there still aren't grounds for suspension there.
