We did this one a while ago.

At that time I made a sensible contribution regarding an unpaid Hindu chaplain whom I know.

I will not repeat myself, so here is an old non pc joke.

A Jewish bloke walks across a road, and is struck by a lorry. He is obviously dying. An RC Priest walks over, kneels next to him and asks "Do you believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost"?

The Jewish bloke replies "What? I'm lying here dying, and you ask me riddles?"

It's 23.5 million not 235 million.............More NSS hyperbole.

Don't think so - as the article linked to states 23.5 million. Isn't it more likely that the link was just mistyped somewhere along the line - and that a . was missed out.

A miniscule amount in NHS budget terms though.

A minuscule amount that brings some patients a lot of comfort when they are afraid.

Indeed, that was what I was thinking, if not managing to imply it.
