    I once had a gerbil with a condition.

    The poor things manly bits swelled up so much that they dragged on the floor.

    I had to keep holding him down on ice to sort it. He was not happy.

    Lets hope for a quick recovery!

    If thats what labour manage during the good times i dont think we need them in power for the hard times ahead.

    Theres the article i was trying to find; 2.4 trillion spent by the UK on the recession. Just slightly beats the 3.5bn that the tories lost

    I think this chart sums it up! If we all pay 31,250 in extra tax next year we will be fine!

    My point exactly

    Im not saying we didnt need to pay... if we hadnt we'd be even more screwed as somewhere around 80% of our GDP comes from the finance sector, where as countries like the US actually do have some manufacturing industries left.

    Not very good I'm afraid - just got back from the vet in which he agreed with my prognosis - which is a scent gland tumour - I've just bought some Silver Nitrate - [ 30 quid !! ] to put on the surrounding area when it starts to bleed but as Gerbil's are their own worst enemy - [ scratching ] then it will be a minor miracle if it clears up. I'll give it a few weeks but even at the moment he is rather not with it.
    He's back in his cage now looking rather sorry for himself.
    Thanks for asking though - I was going to PM you but there is no need now !!

    Gerby is still hanging in there - not as strong as last week but the last two days there has been a little improvement. I am not having to feed him by hand now although he does struggle up the ladder sometimes. Certainly not as active but boy, is he a fighter......
    Amazing little creature.......
