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:
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!
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.
