Hi everyone. I've haven't had much time to blog recently - been contemplating the Hoff's demise (see last post) and life in general. Work is busy but still really rewarding.

The NHS/prisons/schools are in crisis, desperate for more resources, so what have the government done to address this? They have spent £450,000 paying someone to design a logo for 2012 that looks like Maggie Simpson buggering a small boy....

Good luck to everyone caught up in the MTAS/MMC whirlpool. For those of you that have been fortunate enough to be offered jobs for August, you should hand in your one month's notice now and get yourself off to a beach somewhere to chill out before then. Let's see how Mrs Hewitt sorts out 3 weeks without any junior doctors in the UK.

£450,000? What's your problem, you've still got enough change from two junior doctors to buy a BMA dinner.


Thanks for the link.

Heard this logo is causing seizures. This true?

Cal said...

dr deb, not the logo in itself, but the promotion video that came with it.

It's totally shite, like something out of the eighties, but there's a particular scene when a diver dives into a pool and the water ripples turn into these jagged shards of various garish neon colours, like something you'd see when you're tripping on acid, and it's that particular bit that caused the seizures.

What an utter disaster.

Anyway, nice to see you back, doc v!

What a load of nonsense. I can't believe they're still defending this crap even after the public outcry. Now the world will have yet another big British joke to laugh at in addition to all the tea and toff jokes.

Sorry, Dr V, I also meant to say welcome back! Hope the MMC fiasco left you unscathed.

I try to come to as many blogs as I use to.
I'm in the midst of studying for another exam!!

Hey thanks for the info, Cal.

Hope you all in the UK are doing well since the recent ugly events. Across the pond, we're thinking of you.

"Maggie Simpson buggering a small boy"
That is the most astute description of the London logo I have ever read!
