Lets have a look at what the useless tnuc is up to.

'Sir Tim Berners-Lee gave the Web to the world for free. But keeping it that way comes at a cost.'

You would never get people to pay for HTML, which was just warmed over SGML.

HTTP - hmm.

'The technological, demographic, social and political forces currently reshaping our world are seismic. Over the next 10 years these changes will result in a landscape dramatically different from anything we have seen before.

Drawing from his wealth of experience as a world leader, Gordon Brown feels it not just the familiar change makers – IT, globalisation and medical invention that are driving this shift – but also new forces. Those of global migration, the demands of the new global middle class, a revolution in the way we educate our children, the growth of global pressure groups and the restoration of ethics.'

Can you name a significant medical invention that has occurred in the last 15 years?

'Gordon asks whether and how we can convert a new wave of scientific and medical progress into a more sustainable and widely-shared prosperity which ends avoidable poverty.'

Medical progress. Again! What progress?

Our NHS is a fckingmess - a good 30% of nurses at my local hospital take 40 days sick - just to skive.

Ooooh, get him, he's such a big thinker, statesman and all that. Washed up prat.

EDIT: I see on one of the articles that he lives near the Forth Road Bridge and he hasn't even made use of it.

In the manner that Roberto Calvi 'used' Blackfriars Bridge? One can live in hope.

Growing organs from stem cells is a new development of the last 15 years, and probably a real game changer for a lot of medical conditions (and even natural ageing) as it continues to develop.

A team of scientists has grown human bladder sacs in the laboratory and successfully transplanted them into people.

I just bask in the knowledge that his labour administration as both chancellor and 'leader' has resulted in the destruction of labour in his beloved scotland and it's rejection in the rest of the british isles.

He really is consigned to the dustbin of british political history. I can't see anyone basing their PHD on him in 50 years time.

I can sympathize with the medical thing a bit...i mean, despite billions being thrown at it, the most cutting edge technology to deal with cancers is still to lop bits of you off, something they could have done centuries ago.

If 'beating cancer' is simply removing body parts, Im not sure if that's really 'beating' it.

Turning bad cells back into good cells is how i'd define beating it.

They've grown something that looks like an organ.

I doubt it functions or lasts as long as an organ.

And, as organs go, a bladder is just a piss balloon.

Gordon Broon is a piss balloon, La la la-la-la.

I think the bladder is a useful device to stop you pissing down your leg at meetings.

I was going to say Viagra, but that was 17 years ago now! Damn, I'm getting old!

So will probably be a customer soon :D

Well at least you don't have to bother about controlling your bodily functions, in a work environment, at the moment so every cloud and all that.

I don't have much hope for the other approach, of waddling round a 10K fun run so your coworkers' money can be spent on a better company car for someone that works, in a marketing role, at a breast cancer charity.
