    As it was the chief exec of the RCN talking about this issue and how the country can meet the need for more nurses I would expect it to be UK or at leat those that can work here regardless of this new visa rule.

    Not a Tory voter but that article states “Thirty-seven-thousand potential nursing students were turned away last year, so there are people out there who want to embark on a nursing career.” so it's not like ther isn't the potential workforce, just the willingness to spend and train them that's the problem.

    Well no matter how bad it goes there always seems to be an elite that gets a DNF and we beat them.
    Luckily most of the negatives fade with the aches and pains.

    Oh and the Run Dem crew were pretty amazing, big groups like that were a massive bonus.

    Not too sound like an arsehole but so glad to read someone else's tale of woe, everyone else i know has amazing stories. Being fat and slow 5hrs was my aim but about half way an old injury flared up and meant the second half was spent repeating the mantra "i can finish this, I will not get a DNF" with a lot of swearing. Think without the crowds I might not have made it round.

    Still I beat bare foot jesus and his cross.

    I lost big toenail running (well fair bit of walking) Athens Marathon after having no problems during training. Since then I have notice the toe sits up a little higher at the front than the other, meaning the nail would have been hitting the top of the shoe rather than the front of the toe taking the impact (of course being a fat git and taking 6 hours might have played a part).

    Thinking that lighter shoes with a sock like top might be better to reduce impact (using Asics at the moment).

    Only 2! Are you forgetting about the Icelandic Bankers that still own a part share?

    It's hardly making the headlines you'd expect in Nigeria either and their President has said more about the attacks in France that the latest attacks in his own country (an election coming up so doesn't want to admit to problems probably). The Nigerian Army is now claiming only 150 deaths including members of Boko Haram, which shows how little anyone know about what is going on.
