My bet is no-one will care, but I'm marrying my fiancee six months today. Who cares, you say. But think about this... Current UK law means you can either be married by an Anglican minister or by a Registrar. Due to ecumenical fun we're getting married in an Anglican Parish Church
with a URC
minister and have to get a registrar to stand in the church. Why the religious difference? Does it matter?
At what point does a government have to stop and wonder if it's judged the mood correctly?
The UK government manages to bribe a rebel
with a cushy job, but not one
, not two
, but three
other MPs walk away from the government in one day.
Are things going wrong in the UK?
Fresh in from the 'perfect timing' department - not even 24 hours after the fire brigade
goes on strike
, the south west of England goes on flood watch
and a Fireworks factory explodes
. For some added fun, the army are banned
from driving the modern fire engines
and instead drive famous 'green godesses
Even ignoring the lack of cover (644 GGs replacing 4,311 normal engines) and lack of equipment
the army fire teams have, should emergency services be able to strike?
