    On a lighter note I had a bit of a cold last week which has played on my asthma and left me with a bit of a cough. The little bit of anarchist in me wanted to go into Sainsbury's wearing a sombrero hat and buy loads of mexican food. Just to see what would happened.

    Considering hayfever is making a comeback at the moment, it is going to cause a high demand for people calling the NHS with runny noses etc...

    Some things come to mind though. There have been various reports on grass-roots news sites stating that the Mexican govt are keeping it on the down low. ie. more people are dying than is being reported officially. One doctor said his clinic had seen 100 deaths from it so far. True? I don't know. But it is the sort of thing governments usually do.

    Also, the media are going up and interviewing the people with it over there and in other countries, rather than them being in complete isolation. How is that going to help prevent the spread of it?!
