I haven't looked on the website for years so I just took a sneak peek and, lo and behold, Andrew Neil has resigned from GB News. To paraphrase the Express:"fans will be gutted". The thought than Neil has 'fans' is disturbing.Online, the Express seems to exist solely by alarmist clickbait. Sentences from quotes presented out of context and worse case scenarios used as headlines etc. I'm still waiting for the Siberian winter they seem to have been forecasting every late Autumn for two decades.

As a child of the last war - my primary school years neatly encompassed the whole of it - I (and everyone else) was exposed to wartime drama which built very close family ties as trips away any distance were a non-event. Ill-health was a given.Now read on, if you dare.
I, along with all others, acquired in sequence:
* whooping cough
* german measles (this left me hard of hearing while another child in our class actually died from it)
* meningitis (this acquired at 11 plus age left me even deafer - and the child who gave it to me died)
* and finally polio.
I did escape scarlet fever.
However as antibiotics were not available I also was riddled with infection and in 1940 sent to a makeshift hospital near the banks of the Thames called Goodmayes where my tonsils and adenoids were removed in one day.
Two days later most of my teeth were removed.
I was there for two months and parents could visit for two hours only on a Sunday, just two people as there was little room.
We were in the midst of fighting a war there and great flashes on the walls which lit up the rooms as the Luftwaffe's bombs dropped.
Strangely, I don't recall anyone being frightened...
