    It makes no difference which party is in power.
    They are all at fault at some time.
    Yes they think it is the correct way to go on the advice given.
    But if that advice comes from a source who has a vested interest, and this is often the case, then it may not bode well for the country.

    The one has to ask, why did your local member enter politics?

    WAs it to benefit the community or his pension prospects??

    Vic, Blair was no longer PM in 2008 but never mind, all western governments bear responsibility for the world economic crash more so the USA and the crash of Lehman brothers which wiped 90 billion of the biggest UK companies in a single day.

    But have lessons been learnt since those dark days?

    “There was borrowing on a huge scale to finance what appeared to be a one-way bet on rising property prices. But the boom was ultimately unsustainable because, from around 2005, the gap between incomes and debt began to widen. This was caused by rising energy prices on global markets, leading to an increase in the rate of global inflation.

    Are we not heading down the same road again with the recent easing of banking restrictions by the current UK chancer?

    James, whether he was leader or not he quoted Labour was partly to blame for the financial crisis.

    All western leaders helped to create the problem. Greed . Stop worrying about what happened 14 years ago. I would be concerned about the same thing happening again.

    Look what has happened since 2019 when the virus hit.
    Money became very cheap and the global stock markets bloomed,
    But now inflation has hit home and markets are falling faster than the London snow.

    JSW #23.

    I'm sorry John, I missed this all together. Your question re medical shots upon emigration: no it was easy going to Canada, We just had to show our small pox certificate. The USA was much different. I had to have a doctor's certification free of all communicable diseases. Upon my interview in Winnepeg the US consulate sent me to a clinic for a complete check over including chest x-ray for lung disease (T.B etc.) the results were ready within a couple of hours and all was good and we crossed the border into the USA the same day as the interview.

    Cheers, Rodney

    Hi Rod.
    TB was eradicated in Australia, then we got the influx of Vietnamese refugees, who brought it back in, so I assume nowadays it will be back in the US from all those illegals that are pouring inn.

    Des, saw a note about this from local medical center last year.
    TB was considered to be eradicated, but the figures show there are about 50,000 cases in Europe, most come from African states.

    Leprosy was cured years ago and was all down to a lack of a certain vitamin , forget which one . There should be absolutely no need for any recurrence of this disease. JS As regards TB if you were brought up in its era the chances your lungs will carry the scars and will always be there . After arrival Oz I had to have annual checks for 5 years to check that scar tissue remained static. JS

    TB was non existent in London after all us kids were jabbed for it many years ago, but now London is claimed to be the TB capital of Europe.
