The End Of Fox Hunters

Fox hunting has been one of this country’s long-standing traditions, reinforced by the images on Christmas cards depicting Boxing Day Hunts and the taking of a tipple at a local venue before the off.  But – for as many years as I can remember – the argument against the practice has been strong.

We were alerted this last week by several social media posts about our most local of fox hunting packs – The Duke of Beaufort’s Hunt.

Schools Halt Roll-Out

Under the stewardship of the new Secretary for Education, UK schools have been enrolled in a mass programme to inoculate children at school – currently 12yrs and above – whilst they are obviously separated from their parents.

This strategy is based on an apparent and spurious need – heavily criticised by so many specialists – and appears to be wrapped in a sugar coating, being a strategy said to ensure that education is not disrupted again by future school closures.

For Our Eyes Only

People living in Tetbury are extremely fortunate to be able to have cataract procedures carried out in our local hospital.  
Over the last few months, the hospital has expanded its Ophthalmology service, and it now has seven consultants.

The importance of being able to have cataracts attended to is expressed extremely well by one of our local Consultant Ophthalmologists.  As he puts it: 
“Life isn’t half so much fun if we can’t appreciate the visual.”
How very true.

Good News - Bad News?

How many times have we all been asked this simple question?  What do you want first - the bad news or the good news?
And the answer most of us would like to hear – as I used to tell it occasionally in fun - was this.

The good news is – there is NO bad news.
And I wish I could say that about this story – but I cannot.  
There is both - but what I can say is this.  We have to know the bad news before we can progress.  So, what is that bad news...?

Full Steam Ahead - Again?

In a short but apparently well-argued and well-informed article he wrote in 2017 entitled “Why the steam car must make a comeback”, science writer Sebastian Broady makes a convincing case - in my uninformed view, at least - for why, indeed, it should.

 

I invite readers, in particular those with a research, analytical or engineering bent, to consider what Sebastian Broady has to say and to follow his line of thinking for themselves.

Just Men With Handcuffs

The Times recently published an article by Janice Turner called “We see police now as just men with handcuffs.”  
This article was prompted by the murder of Sarah Everard by Wayne Couzens, a serving police officer who took advantage of his professional role to carry out this horrific criminal act.  

Janice Turner wrote: “Sarah Everard’s killer wasn’t a single bad apple; he was given cover by a profession that is rotten through with misogyny.”
But does our problem go even further than male police officers abusing their power with women?
