Topic: Sorry.


Didn't think of the Economy.Sorry.I suppose it is implicit in areas like employment and social security,but I ought to have put it, in the choices. You get so mersmerised by the news stories of the day in the vast array of newspapers of every type, kind and persuasion, that you start to forget things. Must be old age.
Today the headlines are still on the health service and immigration.We are very affected by the former(rubbish hospitals with lovely staff... poor things).But not affected greatly by the latter,as long as the paperwork is top notch. (In my part of the country we need people to fill vacancies in certain jobs, where we do not have the trained people.)Does that lead us neatly into the realms of Education?Possibly.


Keep posting and voting BRITS AND EX PATS.

For me it has to be National Security. And immigration goes along with this. But i think there are so many important issues on going at the moment and its hard to put one in front of others. But if we are threaten with being swampt with immigrants or attacked by terrorists then the other issues take second place.

I voted for Crime and Anti-Social behaviour, but National Security is a close second along with more vigilant immigration procedures.

If you mean the current round of merges and amalgamations, i wounder what peoples views are on this. Personally i think its the best thing they could have done. I don't know if this has been discussed on here, if not i'm sure it could take a whole thread of its own.

Why, whats so special about the Black Watch. Every current English Regiment is made up of varies old Regiments, many have been hit twice. While the Scottish Regiments have got away with it. Now its their turn. My own Regiment is also going, but we don't hear the same out cry as with the Scottish regiments.
