Why would a father who isn't prepared to admit paternity take a DNA test to deny it through an expensive injunction? Doesn't compute.

Oh what joy, the spivs are trying to take full control.
I'm guessing the red meat was produced in an unhygienic manner and briefly washed in chlorine.

On the plus side, NHS workers get 20% off their bill at Nando's.

Yes, it's still a thing, and burping delightedly for all to hear, after a surfeit of raw meat delivered by the new keepers.

No, it's someone you've heard of because you've got the internet.

Is that some TV celebrity that I have never heard of due to not having a TV for many years ?

So now down to the big issue.
One of my colleagues went to a conference last month and a speaker made a presentation explaining what is likely to happen over the next ten years. We know that there is becoming a shortage of GPs as the work is relentless and many are retiring early due to the stress.
Also we have many doctors and nurses from other countries propping up the NHS because we can't get enough UK born doctors trained.
Well what is now on the horizon is many emerging counties are setting up free Health services for their citizens similar to the European model, but the issue with this is that they will need thousands extra doctors and nurses.

The work has been done with the likely statistics and basically there is going to be a massive worldwide shortage of medical staff in the future and this is going
to hit the UK NHS very hard.
So even if we have a different government that starts to fund the NHS more adequately, there is still going to be a medical staff crisis.
