Yes there was a big outbreak in the 50's or it might have been the 60's caused by Argentinian corned beef. The cause was discovered to be unwashed or rather washed with river water cans. If I remember correctly quite a few people died from the food poisoning. We were much simpler folk then things like Staphylococci and Salmonella were unknown to us.

"Battery power" I wouldn't even know to what you refer, a young innocent like myself.

I have found a document about food safety which mentions something that could be connected.

The related paragraph reads .......
"When the hot cans are cooled after processing, a vacuum is created inside the can which could result in
contamination being sucked in from outside. An outbreak of typhoid fever was caused in just this way
when cans of corned beef were cooled in contaminated river water.
To prevent this from happening, clean chlorinated water should always be used for cooling."

That sounds like the culprit to me, it's funny how some things stick in your mind. Its like the day Kennedy was assassinated. All I remember is what a bummer it was because they closed down the TV that night.

I think we would have to hear God has been assassinated before they would do that today.

I don't mind paying my taxes (really) but my blood boils
With stories such as in todays Beggars Gazette (Bham Mail).
Pub landlady got suspended sentence for 51K benefit fraud.
What was. Anyone doing to get 51000 pounds in the first place.
I would have to work very hard for a very long time to get this much.
I am all for helping where there is a genuine need.
Is it now time for means testing ? SB (Scooge)

It must be very difficult for DHS to investigate the personal circumstances of someone with a full time job, a license to sell alcohol and known in the community.
I suppose the fact that they caught the greedy cow, eventually, is moderately reassuring that there are checks made.
Perhaps a full blown investigation should be launched as soon as any claimant for any benefit reaches a certain figure of say £25,000.
Maybe that is already the case and the figure is £50k.

I don't think it was the same one, but there was a similar case in that program Saints & Scroungers (the bald bloke does irritate me, but was watching this one) where some women was convivted of , I thin k it was, 48000 fraud. With her it was over 10 years and split between council and DHSS benefits. she claimed invalidity for not being able to walk far (and was shown happily walking round town on surveillance), but while investigating her they also saw that her husband, who she claimed had left her years before, was still living there, and seemed to be the main /only person using the car bought and run on the invalidity benefit. I think she got 4 years (reduced to 3 by appeal judge !!), but that means she will only do one and a half.

Gives great faith in the Health Service.
A woman who posed as a dentist has admitted carrying out work on hospital patients despite not being qualified.

Vinisha Sharma, 37, of Willenhall, West Midlands, admitted forging qualifications and earning £230,000 by deception.

She wrongly claimed to have a degree from the Sri Guru Ram Das institute in India, Wolverhampton Crown Court heard.

The case was adjourned for pre-sentence reports but the judge warned her there was a high chance of a prison sentence.

The government today has announced it is to scrap the no touching rule in schools, this means that they can physically restrain a pupil (not hit them) and also comfort them if needed, I can see this opening a whole can of worms.

But do they have to comfort them after they have Battered them or before. I just want to understand the rules. SB
