FFS (guardian link):

"On Monday, Colin Read, a management consultant, was fined just £2,000 for a catalogue of violence against his wife, Elizabeth Axe. Read became violent soon after the couple married last year, and, in one of the worst attacks, slashed his wife's feet with a knife while she was asleep because she hadn't made his sandwiches for work the next day."

Predictably, after whining on LJ last night I feel completely fine now...

Happy Birthday to innocent_irony. I won't be able to make your birthday celebrations tonight, unfortunately (no money whatsoever, and I have to work a 14 hour day tomorrow!), but I hope you have a great time :).

Also, Nhs reform. Hmmmmm.....

From the article:

Geoff Martin, for London Health Emergency, said: "This is a package of cash-led cuts to local services dressed up as a rational planning process ... If these plans are bundled through, Londoners can expect long journeys through the capital's busy streets in a blue-light ambulance in order to access emergency care."

Note: If people are going to post obnoxious comments on my LJ I shall delete them, no matter how much I like the person who posted them.

Well, university is over. I had my final exam. I think I messed up the second question on that exam quite a bit...oh well. Now, I think I must get drunk!

Coming back to Cambridge soon. Not sure whether to come back straight away or to wait for a few days.

From hippie to yuppie: Guardian article

"Anita Roddick...ran a supposedly right-on business whose attitude to worker representation was summed up by a 1996 edict: "The Company does not formally recognise any Trade Union as representing any of our employees, and has no plans to do so." "

Not sure to what extent I agree with this anymore (I used to make this argument all the time), but I do think that many hippies have a tendency to put the idea of individual change (colourful clothing, yoga etc) above the idea of actually changing economic inequality.
