    National insurance.

    The announcement today fails to differentiate between the NHS and social care You would have to be an idiot not to support the idea that the NHS needs more money, having just coped with the Covid pandemic and everything that has meant Medical and Nursing care is what the NHS is about There...

    Came downstairs this morning to a burst bottle

    Having taken advice from my "people" m748. I would suggest that you move to a bungalow that doesn't have a cellar and that you clean the mess up that you may have left on the stairs carpet this morning
