    Lucy Letby - accused baby killer

    back on topic... this is a very strange case indeed. I used to work and live in Cheshire/Greater Manchester area and something feels off about this.

    Lucy Letby - accused baby killer

    yup 900hrs of placement across all disciplines for the Aussie Nurse Student and when they qualify they work where ever (I just had a student on my shift bragging he wasnt too bothered with Forensic Mental health Nursing as he has landed a job in January in "general" Mental health... I then asked him how many mental health placements he has had... he said "one, this one"...how long iI asked "3 weeks" he said! 2300hrs of placement in UK in your chosen speciality (Paediatric, Learning Disability, Mental Health, Adult...am unsure about Midwifery)

    Lucy Letby - accused baby killer

    uhm... the degree also has upwards of 2200hrs of "patient contact time" (placements)...unpaid. A significant percentage of students will also be doing bank/casual shifts as HCAs in the hospitals where they are training or in their allocated trust. I wouldnt be too quick to be critical of the "new" degree nurses.

    The US Presidential Election Predictor

    Oh how wrong I was Good thing I'm not a paid pundit I hope I'm also wrong that if Biden wins we are in for a bit of trouble, first in the states then "trickling down" to the US Allies.

    Just to avoid conflation Me expressing that I believe Trump will win, does not equate to me wanting him to win! I just happen to be a realist, and I am sick and tired of the stupid things politicians do, which have a massive impact on the world

    You have to realise Obama started the whole idea of Trump running for president when he made a fool of Trump and made insults (it was definately funny at the time, and I certainly laughed hard) But that was a terrible mistake now that we realise how much of a narcissist Trump is So Trump made sure that anything Obama did "wrong", he would get right. Jerusalem North Korea ISIS And on a local level, he recognised that whilst Obama is probably more African American than most African Americans, he probably resonated more with the caucasian and immigrant population as opposed to the black population who have faced generations after generations of effects of slavery What else are we missing? Black people feel that Obama didn't do much for Black people, they feel he tried to do too much for everyone (I think he was right, you can't govern by race)... He couldn't even give them a public holiday. So what does Trump do? He says I'm willing to put a dollar figure for us to start talking reparations... the BIGGEST ticket item in any discussion about the black population in politricks (sic). No one, especially the Democrats who should have, has EVER done that. Black men will focus if you talk reparations. Big picture Black women have been brainwashed with this idea that they don't need those black men to stick around for their black sons, despite all research showing that's the perfect recipe for increased crime rates amongst blacks. They vote by emotion and for shiny things dangled at them. They don't even realise that the same game has been played on them...Kamala ain't black as they are... She probably would struggle to even be described as African American... Maybe Afro-Cari-Indian Canadian with a Dash of California. ... And that too, means she doesn't get the effects of slavery. Black people, more than any other election, are going to be the cause for the result. And I will repeat, Trump will win if blacks buy into his "let's start bargaining on reparations" talk... And I think he will actually do it, again, to spite Obama...to say to him, "you made fun of me, and I did more for black people than they ever give you credit for"... Then they vote for him Or... Black people will feel disenfranchised, and abstain, meaning the Democrats won't have the right numbers to win. And that is a big shame. Because they really messed the bed on this one. All the way back in the primarys. They could have just taken this win and I would have been so happy to see Trump go. But they created a monster (Obama insults), tried to push a worse monster to run against him (Hillary 2016), and lost... And now they just appear to not care anymore.

    Too many black people have abstained in Florida already... I'll start the prediction now Florida is going to vote Trump. The democrats have no chance there and the turnout amongst black people thus far for early voting has already proved to be lower than would have been ideal (in terms of shoring up black voters) Don't let the picture in my profile fool you, I know a bit about the black man's struggle in America. And Black men are absolutely tired of the Democrat rhetoric which doesn't do much for them... Bidens disasterous interview with Charmalagne thaGod is an example of Democrats assuming they have the black vote in their pocket... That's when this whole downhill thing started Obama speaking down at black men hasn't been particularly helpful either... And them withholding him until late to step in to validate Joe has probably been bad in terms of the style of voting this year (early voting and mail in ballots) I have no bone to pick in this. Again, if I did have a vested interest, and I could have my way, I would go with. Bernin and Tulsi team and go Independent...but oh wait... Americans are too immature to think of third options. Have a listen to a podcast called "No Agenda" and another one called "Mo Facts with Adam Curry"... Both feature the podfather Adam Curry and are neutral in their analysis of the American political scene

    Trump is going to win. I am not happy about it, but that's just what it is. It is better that Trump wins, particularly for the black population who have been used as pawns by Democrats for years. It is better for America, because Trump has actually down a few things worth noting, amongst many other non-presidential gaffes. Such a sad day, but it's the lesser of two evils. If Biden wins, believe me, it will be fraudulent.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with being on the right .. It depends just how "right" you are whilst on the right and also just how "right" you are about being on the left. It's a pity I can't disclose my true core values as they would offend many here .. both on the right AND on the left... But just because I land slightly right (or slightly left if these tests are correct) shouldn't be a problem for anyone who is respectful and sensible. If we were all talk dark and handsome as I am with 8% body fat, the world would be a boring place...

    What's Your Political Compass Say?

    I'm actually against being on the right, though I know that some of my core values are on the right... That's why I always thought I was centrist with a dash of right... I have no problem being on the left.. 1)My problem with the (slightly further) left is this idea that "if you don't agree with me, then you are immoral/dumb/uneducated/simple" etc... I think that in itself is quite ignorant. There are so many things the left is getting wrong that once you even begin to point it out, they shove their index fingers in their ears and shout "lalalallalala" like kindergarteners In America you have the nonsensical Black Lives Matter as an example... Too many ignorant people didn't do their research and jumped on the bandwagon with hashtags and black squares, not realising what the true agenda of this organisation is. What they stands for, perpetuates more social imbalance and higher rates of crime (by virtue of the types of households the black boys will grow up in)... Try expanding on that and you'll be called a racist. And if you start to make sense you're told "so what about George Floyd?"... I hazard a guess that when his case is tried, thoroughly, we won't hear much about the finer details, about the extra footage of him in the car before the horrid and very wrong incident of Chauvin kneeling on his neck. Brings me to the problem we have with the Left's control of media ... Twitter, the "last bastion" of free speech now censors anything that offends their left bias. 2)My problem with the (slightly further) right is nationalism masquerading as patriotism and the many isms that seem to come from there. In America in particular, I have a problem with their failure to even have a mature conversation about gun control. In Australia, I have a problem with the failure to actually recognise the damage western culture had and continues to have on the Aboriginal people. And also this misunderstanding of the immigrant population make-up, not every person of African/Asian/SouthAsian appearance is here to take from the state... Just in my hospital alone I can tell you without equivocation that the millions of dollars in wages paid out to the staff of that background (African and Asian) would bring a tear to your eyes...those millions equate to a lot of tax money pumped into the economy. For me, the only Australian is an Aboriginal person, everyone else is just an immigrant or descendant of one like me and they should shut up about "our" Australia this, that and the other. I am yet to hear an Aboriginal person make as much noise as descendants of Europeans about Australian borders. 3) I have no time whatsoever for the two extremes (I only mentioned the "slightly furthers" as I believe these two groups should move closer to each other and align as a middle ground instead of pulling or pushing towards the bookends). Complete and utter idiots they are both... Far Right and Extreme Left.

    Hmmmm. I guess I'm not on the right then... Maybe the left has moved further left and dragged the spectrum over?

    What's Your Political Compass Say?

    I was actually starting to suspect that from the results (even my own) because even by my very own estimate I am slightly right of centre... Not left.

    Trump is going to win because of the black male vote. Black Lives Matter is going to be proven to be a sham which goes against the black conservative (in their make up, not political party) Democrats because of its aims of splitting up families and anti-male presence rhetoric... Along with its Marxism Black population is also going to wake up to the new movement of Americans Descendants of Slaves... which Obama and Harris are not. So the Black Americans who are descendants of slaves, who know the true hardship that brings, are going to realise that not all "black" is equal... and they will line up with Trump who has at least offered a dollar value as a start for negotiation towards some type of economic reparation for the slavery atrocity... Akin to the acknowledgement the Jews got from Germany So ...in a strange way... The black vote is going to win Trump a second term... Either by voting for him, or abstaining. And he is right, if the democrats win, it's going to be on the back of dodgy politicking and he would be right to challenge it. This really should have been Bernie with Tulsi Gabbard. She would have won the Republican veteran base by either getting them to abstain or vote for her as a veteran. This would have been my dream team Good thing I'm not a Yank... And I don't have to... Because I really HATE the fact that I too would be voting for Trump over Biden
