    You know, we are constantly bombarded with headlines saying the NHS are making this cutback and that cutback for want of funding... so why the fc*k are there several modern beds in this building just being left to rust beyond redemption? Those beds alone are worth quite a substantial figure... many a mickle macks a muckle as they say... oh the bl**dy hypocrisy of the adminsitration in this country!!!
