From the G liveblog:

Quote:
A&E attendances at hospitals in England were down 42% last month compared with a year ago, new figures show. A total of 1.3m attendances were recorded in May 2020, down from 2.2m in May 2019.

NHS England, which published the figures, said the fall was “likely to be a result of the Covid-19 response” - an indication that people have continued to stay away from A&E departments because of the coronavirus outbreak.


Shame we can't get more detail on this. I know there's concern that attendance at A&E has gone down because people are worried about Covid-19 but at least some of this drop in attendance will be due to people not having accidents because they're in lockdown. Fewer people out in cars means fewer car accidents, trampoline parks shut means fewer broken bones falling off trampolines and so on and it would be very interesting to know how much of the drop in attendance is due to genuine reduced demand rather than delay in seeking treatment.

I mistakenly put paprika in my oatmeal this morning instead of nutmeg.
My error wasn't caught until after it was cooked through.
I've eaten most of it.

I knew I'd likely made an ingredient error after the first taste. I usually add honey, light or dark muscovado and a tiny bit of maple syrup in my oatmeal. That helped. Paprika lingers on the palate. I'll be tasting the spice in my mouth all day, if not tomorrow too.

Once made some blackcurrant jam, but added a significant quantity of salt (rather than sugar) before realising the mistake. Remarkably, it was still edible :)

Dislocations, fractures, amputations followed by gastrointestinal conditions seem to pop up a lot in the results from an internet search for most common A&E diagnoses.

Nice typo there, reminds me of when we were kids and went to the beach where there were dangerous currents in the sea nearby.

Sister shouted out to me "don't go in there, the berries will get you!".

Not a surprise.

Probation services to return to public control after Grayling disasters

https://www.theguardian.com/society/202 ... -disasters

Quote:
The Ministry of Justice previously announced that all offender management, about 80% of all probation work, would be brought under the state-run NPS.

The remaining services, such as rehabilitation and the provision of unpaid work, will no longer be offered up for private tender, the justice secretary said, marking the complete return of probation services to the public sector.

About 2,000 workers at the private providers, known as community rehabilitation companies (CRCs), are to be brought over to HM Prison and Probation Service.


Excellent. More like this please.

Sources at LBC tell me Farage’s show was brought to an end amid widespread anger among BAME staff and others at the station about his comments comparing Black Lives Matters protesters to the Taliban.
