    BBC Ten o'clock News tonight

    What a relief. A news bulletin containing real news, interesting news, without the usual BBC/British obsession about the NHS. For days and weeks it's been NHS this and NHS that as though nothing else of importance is happening in the country or the world. Every country has to deal with flu outbreaks, with hospital overcrowding, with increasingly elderly populations ... but do they all give their health service problems headline news coverage day after day after day. I don't believe so. This country is obsessed by the NHS. There is other news. Please lets hear some of it.

      You’re fed up of all the talk about the NHS, so you start a thread about...

      Don't get old or pick up a serious condition, because then you will find out why people are obsessed by the NHS.

      I was thinking the NHS was pretty important. Especially at this time of year.

      Better than talking about that impotent prune across the pond.

      As we’re talking about the NHS, it would appear that the government is letting it fail so more and more of it can be handed over to the private sector.

      If the government lets the NHS fail it will cease to be the government.

      Really? All they talked about was Trump calling countries shitholes. How is that real news?

      Only blessing is they didn’t mention Brexit once.

      One of the complaints about the BBC is that they often run stories about politicians, ones that are of very little interest to the general public outside the Westminster bubble. Journalists, the complaint goes, (and there's some justification for it) should be covering stories that are of real interest to the population as a whole, things that people are talking about.

      So, when the BBC does do this, people are still moaning ...

      They did mention a doctor who branded his patients livers with his initials.....does that count as the obligatory NHS news?
