I remember a doctor explaining how tiny bone fragments, following Dad's head injury, were periodically causing parts of his brain to 'short out', forming temporary connections where there shouldn't be any, and sometimes shutting down ones which should be. He called it 'mechanical epilepsy'.
He said trying to get them out would definitely cause more damage than leaving them in place and living with the occasional side effects.
I am currently smiling to myself at the mental image of our Mayor and the Council ceremonially kneeling down en-masse and paying homage to the 'bin lorries', rather like Arabs facing Mecca.
Why? One of those ambiguous sentences which can be read in more than one way. My italics.
We are currently experiencing a high number of staff absentees due to sickness and holidays. In addition, there is the ongoing challenge of recruiting staff who are qualified to safely drive and load the refuse collection vehicles which many Councils are facing.
