Re: New doctor training body needed. So they just get one? Now that's what I call a cutback.
Following PM's note on the busiest day for busiest days, can I be the first to predict that in two weeks' time or so, the papers will be reporting on the most depressing day of the year? As defined by a spurious formula devised by a teenager doing work experience for a fame-hungry professor with an inferiority complex who never gets any proper work published, in his lunch-hour down the pub on the back of a fag packet? With, of course, accompanying "How to beat the winter blues" articles, advice on self-diagnosing Seasonal Affective Disorder and price comparisons on light boxes? My prediction is Tuesday 22 January.
Surely it's a bit pointless to have a "listen" button under "DJ Bacon on being silenced by throat op"
