But that is of course nonsense. The governmebnt has clearly stated that
(a) education education education is where its at
(b) thrown huge amounts of money at teh system
(c) made teh exams so easy that everyone is now super intelligent.
(d) told us we cannot be allowed to take responsibility for our own actions
Therefore it is clear that becisuse Big Tone sez it, we are both the
most well educated and sophisticated people we have ever been, bar none
and at the same time completely irresponsible about our own and others
So obviously education cannot be the answer.
I suspect this will be the way it will be spun shortly.
"Education no use to 99% of people"
"Money better spent on thermo valves for elderly, and more thought police"
Don't be silly. Being awake and alert negates the need for government
and makes advertising redundant. The buggers who control our lives would
be out of a job.
Ther have always been tow reactions to Life and its Dangers.
I was taught that stepping in front of trains was stupid, and would get
Today its a question of Making Our Railways Safe for Children To Play
on. And restricting trains to less than 15mph in biuilt up areas to cope
with the pedestrian crossings.
Mor(t)ally you can take your pick. In terms of economic
cost-to-the-nation, its pretty obvious which costs more.
Except to IMM and the Loony Left.
This is big news. It was a topic of interest on the BBC Jeremy Vines
radio programme. Everyone appeared to think it a very good move. Vines
tried to play devils advocate with not much success.
I think it is a very good thing to have these fitted. They are already
in schools, hospitals and old people’s homes. I hate scalding
water too. I have nearly been scalded in many hotels; they have the
water far too hot to avoid Legionnaires disease. I thought it was
mandatory for hotels to have thermostatic blending valves.

That's because "everyone" rarely thinks. Some people do think - but
they are barred from being politicians because of it.
And one of the biggest complaints in the latter two is that you can't
have a decent hot bath because the damn valves limit the temperature
such that by the time the bath is full the water is cold.
Ever tried having a shave in the tepid water hospitals consider as
However if the Phony Blur has decreed it is a "good thing" and will
saveachillun who are we to argue in the face of the evidence he will
no doubt concoct.
Not sure where these hotels these are, but can I have their details. I hate
the ones which restrict the water temperature or flow as first thing I want
after a long drive or flight is a good long VERY HOT soak.
Has anyone actually put any thought into the fact that these
temperature sensors can actually go wrong? If the householder gets
used to the idea that they can just turn everything on max to fill
their bath, knowing that the sensor will get the temperature just
right, then one day they start lowering their arse into the bath which
has been filled with scalding water.....ouch!
Secondly, I can't speak for others but as a child I very quickly got
the message that really hot water hurts like billy-o. So with these
new arrangements we won't be teaching our kids a lesson in life. The
first time they find out about scalding water may well be too late.
