Independence Day?

Looks like the political discussion thread is here to stay on this forum. The vote didn't go the way I wanted but there we are, it's a democracy. So we all have to live with the consequences what ever they will bring. 

Found this the other day and thought it was so funny and accurate that I had to share.

I just heard on the radio that there's a bill or proposal abolishing the bursary schemes for student nurses. In it's place will be the student loan route. That's not going to help with recruitment of new British staff. In or out of the EU.
