Terrorists were, apparently, planning to kidnap, then behead a British Muslim soldier.
Given that, isn’t the cartoon on The Guardian’s Comment is Free website a little distasteful? It’s caption is Tied Down. Oops.

Today’s Guardian reports that the NHS is planning to “reconfigure” a number of health services in the UK in order to make further cost savings. A&E Departments and Maternity wards are likely to be worst hit.
David Nicholson, the man leading the reforms told the newspaper:
[changes] will be aimed at redesigning the NHS to improve care by concentrating key services in fewer hospitals
When will the NHS realise that in many cases, fewer hospitals means anything but “improved care”? In rural hospitals, many find that treatment is simply unavailable because they cannot travel to the ‘nearest’ hospital department, which thanks to these kind of NHS reforms will be further away than ever before.
Fewer departments might mean ‘cheaper’ care, but I have no idea how it will be ‘improved’ care.
