swine flu bad taste...

Tsk... Such bad taste. Swine flu seems a bit of a damp squib so far. Apparently there were flu epidemics in 1958 and 1967 that killed about 50,000 people apiece in the UK alone. No-one got very worked up.

I'm more concerned about that appalling virus called 'Big Brother' which is currently sweeping the nation.

It makes you want to plead for an early death!

I agree with what Sir James B'Stard KCMG BT said... how can this once sceptred isle... this green and drunken land.... have so many morons to make it profitable for Channel 4 to make Big Brother...

It is worrying... but what is more worrying... is that these same people, because of democracy, can VOTE.. even though they haven't a bloody clue what they are voting for...

I could go on... but the doctor has arrived with a dart gun.... BANG..... zzzzzzz

Jimmy... you OK for that 'Research' trip to Spearmint Rhino next week?

We must do our best for young people... as I am likely to to accept a position as Britain's Enterprise Tsar when Sir Alan finally gets tired of reporters who ask him 'nasty and impertinent' questions.

Trouble with Moguls... they are used to giving orders... and having people saying YES, Sir Alan to them on telly... they go orf their heads when faced with the slavering, ravening horde of the fourth estate.

I won't, of course... cos shark don't eat shark.

White Rabbit... you are running a most hospitable joint here.... I like the @No TRTAINERS' policy... speak soon. perhaps you would like to join Sir James and me... to provide a consultative approach... to our research?

Earlier this year I heard that the regular flu kills more people every year than this thing. It made me wonder why all the hoopla.

People with regular exposure to pigs are at increased risk of swine flu. More than 1100 people worldwide have died from swine flu since it emerged in Mexico and the US in April, according to the latest figures from the World.
