This is a MUST-READ story from the BBC.

via BBC News – Call for national dementia database.

Personally, I would have thought that the BBC could write more effectively about dementia and the growing economic and social crisis, with some real options for effective reform of policy?

Any thoughts?

  1. Don Wreford makes a different but interesting point which illustrates that many of our rulers are essentially insane or possibly something worse.

    The BBC’s call for a dementia database is as a result of an instruction they have received which is to play down the extent of the problem, to prove to the public that it is under control,that the NHS is keen to solve it and that the medical profession is working hard towards a cure.

    We will be told that there needs to be “more research” and that we need not worry.

    The reality is that many of the causes are known already, and the NHS, plus the UK medical profession with the connivance of the drug companies, are kicking the can down the road because the politicians see a time-bomb, which they do not wish to defuse and the BBC wants to retain the licence fee and justify its existence.

    Dr Alf has hit the nail squarely on the head with his pungent analysis but leopards do not change their spots, and the BBC like the NHS, is another UK institution which is useless and beyond reform that needs to “experience the smell of napalm in the morning” to the sound of Richard Wagner played at 150 decibels.

  2. The line between insanity of say the individual and institutional corporate insanity is difficult to ascertain. As an example, if the individuals that are of middle eastern origin, as coming from a country like say Afghanistan, who are suspects in blowing up the Twin Towers, and the twenty or thirty are alleged individuals being the culprits, would it be insane to declare war on a country to pay for this crime? As a punishment of these individuals, I suggest this would be a contemporary example of insanity, instituted on a grand scale that is a form of insanity.
