Scrapping health bill could save 6,000 nursing posts, says Labour


tinkerbell | 7-Feb-2012 12:00 pm sadly it is only a very tiny, thin voice which not many will listen to as there is no money to be made from such ideas. My idealism doesn't seem to be the same as Cameron's, like chalk and cheese! Perhaps all the comments we wish to draw to his attention to we should mark at the top with FOR THE ATTENTION OF MR. CAMERON It would be good if NT would continue to publish some of the most pertinent comments to present to him as I do appreciate he cannot possibly read them all. By the way it is Carnival in Switzerland and yesterday my fitness teacher said her four year old daughter is going as none other than 'TINKERBELL' and in previous years she has won several prizes for her costumes. Mum hires them rather than making them herself. They have processions in the streets on two different days, one for the kids and another for everybody with all the floats, so hopefully it won't be too icy cold. They also play Guggenmusik which is an extremely loud cacophony of brass and throw sweets and confetti (which one finds in ones apartment up to six months later!). A great excuse for all the local alcoholics as well. I wanted to tell my teacher about your Tinkerbell as well but thought it would be too complicated to try and explain in German and especially as even some of the young know nothing about commenting and blogging and I don't think she would be too interested in the NT and all our political problems anyway - they are more fascinated by our Queen which makes me puff up with British pride (at least there is still a little left to still to believe in!). Besides you know what is like trying to explain something and then wishing you had never started. The other day I tried to explain the game of Jacks to her which I discovered later on the Internet is unknown here and in German speaking countries which surprised me as we have nearly everything else under the sun in common despite our different languages.
