    I think it needs to be mentioned for all to see the hassle the student encountered. She is a PhD student who had reached out to people on Scooploop for help in a simple questionnaire for which I duly completed for her. Yesterday, she left Scooploop completely because of negative and quite frankly,unacceptable comments aimed at her. It has since come to my attention that she has made comments on a Facebook forum of how nasty Scooploop is. Not a great look for Scooploop.

    lady that asked for help in her quest to complete her PhD has sadly left the site having been harassed by negative comments in her thread. I hope the person who made the negative and surly comments is proud of himself. Thread below. https://www.scooploop.com/thread/participants-needed

    So, Bojo is taking the retrograde step of reverting back to imperial measurements. What next I wonder? Stone tablets for children in the classroom? The majority of the planet uses the metric system of measurements. He talks of trade deals with countries that use the metric system. Imagine the paperwork confusion at custom borders converting metric tonnes to imperial tons and vice versa. Utter madness. Let’s hope he doesn’t have any plans to revert to pounds, shillings and pence. Furthermore, the younger generation, the future of this country, who have been brought up and taught the metric system will have been failed if this stupidity goes ahead.

    Is hosting the COP26 UN climate change summit in Glasgow commencing on 31st October. The Government did sign up to all of its principles. But, hold on, to broker a trade deal with Australia, the government have given in to two of the Aussies’ demands and are going to renege on those principles. So much for the government’s commitment to fighting global warming. Hypocrites. https://news.sky.com/story/government-accused-of-reneging-on-key-climate-promises-after-dropping-commitments-for-uk-australia-trade-deal-12402327

    our Home Secretary is at it again. Having had to resign as International Development Secretary in 2017 for holding “private meetings” with Israeli officials. She was branded a serial offender last night over a secret “lobbying” meeting she brokered between a billionaire Tory donor and British Airways. In an alleged breach of the ministerial code Ms Patel arranged high level talks at Heathrow Airport’s Hilton Garden Inn without a Home Office official present – as rules dictate. The hotel is part of a chain owned by Ms Patel’s friend Surinder Arora. Only weeks earlier he declared he needed “all the help we can get from government” after Covid led to a 90% fall in bookings. And he has ambitions of building and running a third Heathrow runway. A huge conflict of interest here.

    Southern Water was recently fined £90 million for dumping untreated sewage and chemicals into rivers and the sea. Now, companies have been given carte blanche to do just that because of lack of chemicals for the treatment works. https://www.independent.co.uk/climate-change/brexit-raw-sewerage-water-treatment-b1915765.html

    Strimming our lawn edge merrily away when all of a sudden there was a flash and a bang that emanated from the handle of the strimmer. I dropped it like a hot potato. I nearly had kittens. Husband’s checking it now.

    If anyone is interested, there is a webinar taking place at 6:30 this evening to discuss the Health and Care Bill that is in the process of going through the Westminster parliament. With the second reading of this Bill just weeks away, it is vital that our members understand what it means and what we can do about it. The Health and Social Care Act of 2012 proved disastrous for our NHS, and this webinar will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about what the new Bill offers. If you are worried what is happening and going to happen to our NHS, register for a place in the discussion, click on this link. https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYtc-qoqjspHN0uEAkgLSQr1SStzMrfa6SD

    Since joining Scooploop yesterday, I’ve joined a few groups but I notice that there are some that are classed as limited. Can anyone advise what that means please? Thank you.
