    Speaking about words which sound funny in another language, I've always found the Vietnamese currency rather hilarious.

    “I have one million dong.” :teehee:

    (The fact that it's so hyper-inflated only adds insult to injury.)

    Slightly older news, but both Ebola nurses were taken to the Royal Free

    Ah, that is likely while it passed me by when you mentioned it, I mentioned the nurses as well when defending my statement in the subforum, if you would like I can ask Ray to edit in a joint statement, asking them to be taken to the Royal Free instead, if the House agrees this is the best course of action, joint statement of course as it was your suggestion.

    I am interested in That Bearded Man's view as a, training(?), doctor on which is more suitable, not in his position on the CC, if he feels that is possible in this situation

    Do you find it hilarious because it's £30?

    Especially if you imagine it in a native person's Chinese/ Vietnamese accent

    Fair point. PPP is what really matters to be honest. Big Mac Index ftw.

    No, it's the thing that should be between your legs unless you forgot to tell us something important.

    It was specified in the crisis, I'd suggest having a read of the final paragraph of it, I'm afraid I can't better reply right now, unlike George Brown, Labour Minister 1964-1968 and also Labour Deputy Leader at the same time, I do not work better when drinking

    Royal Free is plausible, I have no issue with choosing Royal Free instead of London. I honestly don't know which is the hub, so give credit to JD if that's the case, the choice of moving him or staying in Belfast remains.

    In this case if Jammy is sure about Royal Free over London I am willing to change this, and willing to credit Jammy Duel, although I would like to discuss this briefly first if that is okay with the House

    Royal Free is in London, Hampstead to be precise, and is the only place in the UK to have a high level isolation unit that is equipped to treat highly infectious diseases such as ebola and other diseases that in terms of research and the likes require Bio-safety level 4 facilities, although I imagine hospitals work on a slightly different rating, particularly given practicality given that at the higher ends of the rating you're looking at isolated buildings and the likes, hence why cases of things such as ebola and Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever are treated there and I assume are always transferred there if it is safe and practical to do so.

    Well, yes, this is the debatable part of this - I want to know, amongst other things, whether AB is considered serious enough to justify transfer there.

    In the morning once the drink was worn off I'll take the House's view on this issue between the two and see what I shall do, I hope you are okay with this course of action Jammy
