    Couldn't you lump all your anti brexit/tories/stoke anti goverment sentiment into one post? Then those who agree wont have to troll the many posts reading the many attempts for such supporters to to speak on them.Like ladies you can all dance around your handbags or man bags for men.Transgenders can use what ever type of bag they want.
    The rest of use then can get one with the boring or less dramatic things posted.

    One in five European NHS doctors plans to quit UK, survey reveals
    BMA report raises fears of Brexit medical brain drain as half of European Economic Area medics also consider leaving


    Almost one in five of the NHS’s European doctors have made plans to quit Britain, according to research that has raised fresh fears of a Brexit-induced medical brain drain.

    And almost half of the health service’s 12,000 medics from the European Economic Area (EEA) are considering moving abroad, the British Medical Association survey of 1,720 of them found.

    The findings come amid growing evidence that Brexit may exacerbate problems of understaffing in the NHS by making both retention and recruitment of EU staff more difficult. In September NHS figures showed that more than 10,000 staff from EU countries had quit since the Brexit vote. And the number of EU nurses coming to Britain has dropped by 89% in the last year, Nursing and Midwifery Council figures released this month showed.

    Government drops M20 lorry park at Stanford


    The government has dropped plans for a huge lorry park off the M20.

    In a massive U-turn, the government says it will no longer be going ahead with the plans for a £250 million park near Hythe just days after saying it was still "fully committed".

    The proposed solution to Operation Stack will be going back to the drawing board after the government announced it would not be defending an upcoming judicial review.

    Earlier this month the Department for Transport denied the scheme had been pulled when contacted by KentOnline.

    But it has today told the High Court it will no longer be defending the review and has scrapped the plans entirely.

    The DfT said it had been trying to bring in the lorry park as quickly as possible and meet "environmental obligations" but found this was not possible.

    New plans for a solution to Operation Stack will now have to be designed and this has been handed over to Highways England to carry out.

    Roads Minister Jesse Norman said: “We know how seriously the lives of Kent residents and the prospects of businesses were affected when Operation Stack was implemented in 2015 and we remain fully committed to a permanent solution.

    “However, we need to go through the proper procedures to ensure our plans, which include a lorry park, best fit the needs of Kent and the freight industry.

    “In the meantime we are developing an interim measure to keep the M20 open to traffic in both directions if Operation Stack is implemented – ensuring disruption is kept to a minimum."

    It must have made a hell of a big hole.

    How big a box would you need on an insurance form to explain that one.

    Does anyone really believe they have even the remotest idea of how to go about this?

    I thought Jeremy Hunt announced that he was, back in early July.
