    that our new Health Secretary Thérése Coffey has her priorities right in that she’s advised all NHS staff to refrain from using “the Oxford comma” Therese Coffey 'tells NHS staff to stop using Oxford comma' New Health Secretary issues guidance telling staff of her 'working preferences' Therese Coffey has told workers in the Department of Health and Social Care to stop using the Oxford comma in their communications, it has been claimed. The Health Secretary reportedly issued guidance to staff to advise them on her working preferences after she was appointed to the role earlier this month. The instructions, which the Financial Times said had been emailed to staff and published on the department’s intranet, also told workers to “be positive”. The ban on the Oxford comma - a punctuation mark that some people place before the last item on a list - has sparked a backlash, with some health workers viewing the instruction as “patronising”. The email to staff was sent last Thursday and also advised workers to steer clear of using “jargon”. The guidance was reportedly given the title of “new secretary of state ways of working preferences”. The Financial Times said that the guidance had been sent to workers in Ms Coffey’s department but it had also been forwarded to staff at the UK Health Security Agency. 'Extremely patronising' The guidance advised workers to “be positive - if we have done something good, let us say so and avoid double negatives”. One official described the email as “super patronising” while another said the instruction on the use of Oxford commas would be seen by staff as “extremely patronising”.

    Is the 10th anniversary of the publication of “Brittania Unchained” a right wing book extolling the virtues of outrageous right wing dogma. Co written by-Elizabeth Truss Kwasi Kwarteng Priti Patel Dominic Raab Chris Skidmore Four of the five authors became part of Johnson’s cabinet, with Truss becoming PM on 6th September. David Cameron was strongly advised to put as much distance as was possible between himself and the controversial book.

    The UKs supposedly elite aerobatics team are nothing more than misogynistic drunks. This from The Times Members of the Red Arrows have been accused of bullying, misogyny, assault, sexual harassment and drunkenness in the biggest scandal in the team’s 60-year history, The Times can reveal. More than 40 personnel, several of them young female recruits, have provided 250 hours of evidence to a long-running inquiry into the “toxic pocket” of the RAF. Alleged victims are said to have been told for months that if they spoke up they would be sent home or kicked out of the air force as senior leaders “swept complaints under the carpet” for years to protect the reputations of people considered “untouchable”. I can’t provide a link as it’s a “subscription” story.

    A friend of a friend informed me of this fire in Dagenham on Saturday.

Cause? A lithium ion battery in a bin apparently. https://www.barkinganddagenhampost.co.uk/news/keppel-road-dagenham-house-fire-9224626

    The FBU have warned that with the amount of possible fires (and fires already taken place) in the next heatwave, there isn’t enough manpower to relieve the firefighters already on a prolonged “shout”. Their numbers have been cut to the bone over the last 12 years with fire stations sold off cutting the amount of fire appliances too. We could be in dire straits if multiple major fires break out simultaneously. https://inews.co.uk/news/firefighters-stretched-limit-braces-uk-heatwave-1784412
