    And how many days per year is the wind fast enough for them to be taken offline?
    Well it's not just the wind being too strong but also too weak. Wind power isn't a great source of power.

    It's more than 3 times now isn't it? The Times seemed to think he'd predicted wrongly four times before this (couple times in the 80's and another couple in the 90's).

    AFAIK 1994 was his first, then this one. Could be wrong though.

    Ah, just checked, 1988 as well.

    I feel sorry for the children and vulnerable relatives of these people who are stupid enough to have given away all their possessions.

    Interesting article.

    I don't think it is being very fair though. Just because a country doesn't operate a wholly nationalised system doesn't mean it operates the American model.

    I agree with the article in that the American model has done a lot of damage to a lot of people. The idea that those on lower incomes should lose their home to pay for medical bills is unbelievably unfair, however, many European countries have hybrid systems involving, to some large degree, the private sector.

    The French were ranked as first in the world for healthcare some years ago by the World Health Organisation.

    So, We have the RL government introducing a new kind of ID card, and now we have the highest borrowing that the month of April has ever seen (so much for reducing the deficit eh Osborne?). Add in things like the NHS not being protected and the university fees situation and one has to ask, are any major policies or promises going to be kept?

    We should all have realised by now that going into coalition gave the government the perfect excuse to do away with anything they didn't really like. How many times have we heard ministers answer questions about policies by saying "we're in a coalition, so we had to compromise"...
    And the ONS pulled the usual trick of releasing the news on the same day as Obama arrives and Volcano II kicks off.

    But the dispersal of the foreign aid is questionable.
    I've been meaning to write a bill on this for a few days now but I haven't had the time.
    I would like to see a fairer and better dispersal, and a more responsible and humanitarian dispersal of said funds.

    Apparently people are kicking up a stink over a lib dem leafletter taking a labour party leaflet out of a letter box and putting his own in.

    Surely that's just standard practice? It's what I was told to do and did.

    Anyone else who has gone leafletting have any input?
