A Cambridge Hospital....
Many many years ago when Bof was a young man and his libido was quite rampant, in the course of his meanderings, had a tryst with a young lady, whom he was to find out later had also entertained one of his friends.
Said friend duly reported that the week before, he had been required to attend that special place at the local hospital and suggested that Bof do the same.

Off Bof trots to the Urogentical clinic.
The name of the doctor was most appropriate... Dr.Oates.
"Let's have a look at it" he says.
Kacks dropped and the beggar has gone into hiding. (The consulting room was damn cold, I tell you!!!)
The look on his face was one of incredulity... Bof thought he was thinking...could something that small get you into any trouble?

"Just pull it out and let me have a look" - done
"And underneath", as he leant forward to examine the item which by now had resumed normal dimensions.
As Bof lifted his appendage, it slipped from his fingers and *slap* landed in Dr.Oates hand.
The doc shot back and then calmly and slowly went and washed his hands, telling a giggling Bof that he was going to have some swabs taken.

This is where it gets ugly.
The clinician in the white coat clearly didn't like his job or the fact that as he was a scrawny, butt-ugly weed of a man that his clients were getting more jollies that he was... but I digress..
The swab consisted of a piece of wood wrapped up in rough polystryrene foam which was forcibly inserted into my jap's eye.

Dear God..... the pain... The wood felt it was 2x4 and the foam concrete...

Anyway... swabs done, given a prescription, told to lay off booze for 2 weeks and no nooky... (Took the pills but not the advice)

The bastarding tests came back negative... all that discomfort for nowt... Well peace of mind, I guess.

NHS... the service was good.
They have some crappy work situations, but that is not their fault.
Too many administrators, managers and assholes who deprive the medical staff of proper funding and facilities.

this is what the labour government have done...
on one hand they've created so many new jobs, bringing the unemployment rate down to the lowest it's been in ages... but they create jobs which clog up the mechanism of the public service...

then the system breaks and it all goes to balls...

It's estimated that 60% of the workforce are directly and indirectly working for the government (NHS, Councils, etc...).

That leaves the other 40% paying for it.

Surely that can't last long.

Estimated by whom?
The civil service says 19% of the workforce are engaged in the public sector.

Because government employees don't pay tax.
