Nearly two weeks ago now, we had a pigeon in our chimney, in the bedroom. It took ages to come down, bringing years worth of chimney shite with it. The fireplace has one of LB’s bus pictures in front of it and once it landed, the pigeon just calmly poked it’s head round the side of it. Rich was ready with a cloth to catch it and release it out of the window. It did a massive loop around the houses then flew away.
Ten minutes later, the Health and Safety Executive rang. They said they will be prosecuting Sloven under Section 3 of the Health and Safety Act. Tears. The following day, Fran rang. She had been at a meeting with Oxford Health and commissioners where it was confirmed that, after quite a battle, the Slade House site would remain with Oxford Health. She said there were tears. More tears.
Jim Mackey, NHS Improvement, told Andrew Smith, MP:
“Southern Health will not receive a cash consideration and will record a non-operating ‘loss’ item in its accounts.”
I think that’s pretty much it now. Other than a shindig at the Oxford Magistrates court when the prosecution is held.
Thank you. I think we all did a bloody good job, as Connor would totally expect.
