Bad stuff

Police pepper-spray seated protesters

When I woke up after eleven hours sleep and in hardly any pain, I thought this was going to be a good day. How wrong can I be? This is the news today:

GPs should ‘not sign off long-term sick’ [BBC]

A report not only says that an independant board should be responsible for signing people off work, but also that people who are signed off should go on Job Seekers Allowance and look for work. I’ve written a response in Sick? No you’re not!

Ken Clarke hopeful of deal on European human rights laws [BBC]

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke says he is close to reaching a deal which would allow British judges to overrule European human rights legislation.

Human rights legislation appears to be the only thing holding the Tories back. This is bad.

Things aren’t going well in Egypt either. The military are still in control despite promises of elections, and they don’t like protests so much now.

Then there is this video of police using pepper spray on seated, compliant protesters at UC Davis in California.

And I have a flu jab in two hours time.

The world is broken and I can't fix it because I am broken. I can, however, rant about it all and this is where I do that when I can get my thoughts together. Most of the time you'll find my words on Twitter rather than here though. I sometimes write for Where's The Benefit too.

  1. Lovely. Just what I needed to make a high pain day better. In other words, Britain wants to seal itself off from the rest of the world and go back to a feudal society; the USA is becoming a f*cking police state; and the disabled should curl up somewhere on the street and “hurry up and die” to use my father’s choice wording to me from regular emails. Cheers.

      1. Under the sea is a bad idea. Climate change, y’know. I’m already planning to move to Mars with my two girlfriends and my current boy-toy. Any #spoonies, their familes and SOs, and supporters are welcome to come along. Politicians are banned. We WILL be checking political backgrounds. 😉 Please remember to pack cats, electronics, and personal libraries.
