Five minutes from home Sabina Nessa walking in the dark,

Was savagely murdered by a complete stranger in a park.

Hidden under a pile of leaves discovered by a dog walker,

Women and girls deserve to feel safe at all times,

7000 steps a day could cut your risk of dying by 70 percent

To walk 7000 steps a day is my intent,

Cuts my risk of dying by 70 percent.

Plans for walking the equivalent of 3 miles a day I have made.

Making it much less likely to die in the next decade.


Taking more than 10000 steps a day did not result in a further risk of dying.

So keeping to a sensible step rate I am constantly trying.

I sometimes think about my sedentary peers,

The funding to create more G.P.'s and nurses is not enough !!

Doctors on a hundred grand a year,

Are being stretched beyond endurance I fear.

A problem lies ahead for the N.H.S.

A third of G.P. 's will quit due to stress.


Verbal abuse due to frustration is the norm,

Being unable to get a face to face appointment will create a storm.

The number of fully qualified G.P's is falling,

A 50% face to face consultation to many  is appalling...

Ban assisted dying and keep us all alive

Positive views on assisted dying is at a high,

A majority of doctors believe we should help the terminally ill to die.

Currently all forms of assisted dying in the U.K. is  a NO.

But a bill through Parliament permitting doctors to kill is soon to go !!!!


Some say there is nothing positive about agony.

But fighting the pain and surviving seems okay to me.

Hardworking,as sharp as a pin,extremely well read.
