Meanwhile, back in the UK…

The residents of Cosham are bitching about the possibility of having their evening television viewing interrupted by the air ambulance. Yes, that’s right, some of the residents who choose to live next to a massive hospital are complaining about not being to watch Big Brother uninterrupted. Oh and apparently the downdraught knocks over their patio furniture too. Boo fucking hoo.

Currently, the air ambulance can only operate between 8am-6pm and a planning application has been sent in to make the service 24 hour, but some local residents regard their television viewing as more important than saving lives.

I’m assuming that in registering their complaints that they are also registering their ineligibility for airlift in the event of a serious illness or injury? Of course not.

If you live in the Portsmouth area and want to let the council know your opinion, the planning application can be found here or on the Portsmouth City Council website under Planning, and search for “helipad”.

Without wishing to labour the point too much, in countries like Nepal, if you are seriously injured and cannot afford the bus fare to hospital or don’t have anyone who can take you, you will die.  If you’re lucky enough to get back to your home, you will die there, if not, it’ll be an agonising, public death with no medical attention whatsoever.

Come on England, get your fucking act together.
