Do you know what? We should make, like, a NATIONAL gofundme page that everyone can donate to so that people can afford healthcare.

That’d be neat!


#1562

That’s a great idea.

Maybe we could find a way so that people could just donate straight from their wages and avoid having to log on and donating all the time - less hassle!

Then we could think of a name for this national health service. Something short and simple so everyone could remember…


#1563

Sorry mate, someone brought that in 70 years ago.


#1564

Fucking commies. :bellerin:


#1565

This is so hilarious that I don’t know where to start


#1566

Ahh, the famous 123m spire on Salisbury Cathedral. Story checks out, off you go lads.

:unai:


#1567

:joy::joy::joy::joy: got to give it to Russia… they’re truly one of a kind.


#1568

More than anything, that actually now confirms to me that they did do it.

Didn’t even know Salisbury had an impressive cathedral. Of course it makes sense to leave the churches of Russia for that thing :arteta:


#1569

To be fair once you’ve seen the cathedral there’s really no reason to stick around in Salisbury.

Good call avoiding the pile of rocks too, they’d have been very disappointed.


#1570

We know churches. We have the best churches. We have spires like you wouldn’t believe.


#1571

Salisbury Cathedral is quite a major tourist attraction. And it houses one of the four surviving copies of the Magna Carta


#1572

Yeah I just looked it up actually, looks pretty nice tbf.

But do you guys think the Russians would be that big enthusiasts of Anglican church architecture


#1573

Some Russians, yeah sure, why not? Just like any other people from any nation might be.

Those particular Russians? Not a fucking chance haha


#1574

Haha yeah that’s what I meant. I love the story though


#1575

Seems plausible to me :arteta:


#1576

Not news as such but this was an interesting read. I’ve always been somewhat sceptical of this kind of thing.


#1577

It all depends on the type of work you’re doing.


#1578

It does. This article is focuses specifically on an aspect of voluntourism that is often harmful, did you read it?


#1579

Really hope this will help the violent crime in London

The VRU helped a ton in Glasgow over the past 10 or so years.

At least nobody in good faith can criticise Sadiq khan for not doing anything about crime in London.
