Fathers 4 Justice
Perch on the Foreign Office building in Whitehall today, the four demonstrators (Batman, Robin and Captain America) was a sight to be seen, especially in this cold.I am not sure if I agree with their approach to the issue but one cannot help but admire them for their determination. All the talk and dialogue has been going on for years with no result so it seems that it is the only way to get their message across to the general public.It is certainly the action of desperate men who want to have access to their children.
Schizophrenic - pleas for help!
It is obvious that care in the community is not working. The issue of patient’s rights is also compounding the matter when it comes to the treatment of the mentally ill.
Paranoid schizophrenia is treatable but only if the patient takes medicine on a long-term basis. What happens when a patient does not accept that he or she is ill and refuses to take their medicine? They get sick, start hearing voices and in their own paranoid world end up doing things, which affect the safety of the public.
Where do newspapers columnists find this stuff? Things you didn’t know but something to ponder! * Four out of 10 people who come to a party in your home will look in your bathroom cabinet. * Whoopi Goldberg acquired her first name because she had a problem with flatulence. * Millions of trees are accidentally planted by squirrels that bury nuts and then forget where they hid them. * A crocodile can run at 11mph. * Men born with low birth rates are less likely to get married.
Local resident and Chair of Hounslow Liberal Democrats Harjinder Singh Khalsa is spending the next fortnight in India doing his bit for the Tsunami relief effort. Harjinder is in the Cuddalore district of India where he will be overseeing the repair of a nursery school.
In addition to his work as Sikh Chaplain at Heathrow, Harjinder is a long standing volunteer with the Sikh charity Khalsa Aid. The repair of the nursery school will involve making an asbestos roof safe with the installation of a false ceiling, as well as ensuring the purchase of new books and toys. Harjinder's primary responsibility is to monitor the successful delivery of the aid.
Speaking at Heathrow before his departure, Harjinder said:
"With every pound we spend we can make a significant difference to the lives of others. We are a small charity and this means we can ensure at least ninety percent of the money we raise goes to aid, rather than administration. Anyone that would like to help us make a difference should visit: Khalso Aid"
Ken’s big mouth!
Why does Ken Livingston always get away with being so rude to people? Speaking one’s mind or saying it as it is, is one thing but he goes too far and doesn’t seem to care.
It's about time he is put in his place.
I had my dose of Ken's mouth after last year’s Annual Meet the Mayor debate. He was so annoyed at being challenged on the TV about the state of the London buses that he turned on me quite unexpectedly later at the reception.
Not able to come up with any real answers to the questions, he just attacked me by saying ‘it was a Lib Dem plot against his plan for the buses’. Then before I could even respond he continued that I should look at my clothes because I look like a Lib Dem.
I must say I was quite taken back. Political debate is one thing but comments about a woman's clothes is another. A bit below the belt.
We live to meet again…………I'm not going to forget.
