Is it another one of those Mason like gestures?

The new one is much easier:

Place thumb on tip of nose with hand in vertical position.
Extend fingers upwards.
Waggle fingers whilst sticking your tongue out.

*optional is the addition of a 'raspberry' noise

hope this helps

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

The Civil war in the Tory party is about to get a lot worse it seems..

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45468544

https://news.sky.com/story/80-tory-m...baker-11494310

Quote:
As many as 80 Conservative MPs are prepared to vote against the prime minister's Chequers plan, a former Brexit minister has warned.
Quote:
In the interview, Mr Baker said: "If we come out of conference with her hoping to get Chequers through on the back of Labour votes, I think the EU negotiators would probably understand that if that were done, the Tory Party would suffer the catastrophic split which thus far we have managed to avoid."
Quote:
He added: "We are reaching the point now where it is extremely difficult to see how we can rescue the Conservative Party from a catastrophic split if the Chequers proposals are carried forward.

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

To add insult to injury May has just appointed Lord Brompton (a NHS Privatiser) as Chairman of the NHS.

Be very worried by the things that are slipping under the radar whist Brexit is the main subject in the news.

One of his famous comments from a few years ago has really come home to roost as myself being very much a regular to hospitals these past few years you get a fairly good handle on things Angua and my observations are that "the standards of care" have got considerably worse IMO.

Yet without staff, competition is meaningless.

A couple of nurses and a health care assistant certainly ain't enough for over 30 patients where quite a few of these patients have multiple comorbidities.

This is the huge issue. Staff are stretched to breaking point, whilst the fact they care is abused by TPTB with shifts that are overlong, few if any breaks and more responsibility than they are equipped for.

As with anybody who is working when one is stretched to breaking point mistakes generally get made but in a medical setting where patients are ill any mistakes can be life threatening to the patient and imagine how that affects their families and relatives as well as any of us on here could easily be affected in one way or another by something like that one day.

Conservatives attacked by Jewish and Muslim leaders over their support for the right-wing party in Humgary
Quote:
President [of The Board of Deputies] Marie van der Zyl, said: “As we have stated previously, we are very alarmed by the messages at the heart of Orban’s election campaign, including his comments about ‘Muslim invaders’, calling migrants poison, and the vivid antisemitism in the relentless campaign against Jewish philanthropist George Soros.”
