I'm back, well, almost. I'm out of agony 24/7, at any rate and I now only hurt for part of the day. Back injuries are painful. Still, could have been worse.

You'd have been forgiven for not knowing that Britain's pensioners made the tremendous effort of travelling a great distance to barrack the UK Goverment about the 2 million of their number who are living in poverty over here. Particularly if you watch only the BBC news, which didn't seem to find the event particularly newsworthy. I'm sure this has nothing to do with the contribution made to the peniless-state some now find themselves in, by the BBC's TV license.
