Reverend Rat still secure in hospital


It looks as if the Reverend Rat's exact state of health is mystifying the NHS, so they are keeping him in hospital for another couple of days.

The much vaunted multi-billion pound NHS "data spine" appears to be reduced to getting the Hospital to phone Rat's General Practioner so that the GP's surgery can fax back the Rat's arthritis and stroke medication details back to the same Hospital which prescribed these medecines in the first place !

The internet access through the WinCE based TV system has currently stopped working (internet gateway out through Torch Communications in Kingston upon Hull)

Rat would welcome a copy of the SUSE 10 Linux distro which is available on the cover of one of this month's Linux magazines, as he wants to be able to watch some DVDs on his laptop computer.

There are machine carbine armed Police guards a few feet from Rat's bed, but he assures us that they are not there because of him.


Last time I had an operation I had armed guards in my room because there was a guy who'd been shot in the middle of a coke deal sharing my room.

I didn't mind except for the fact that they talked all night and their radio kept making a noise.

Trust me - sharing a room with a variety of a number of police-persons for a number of days will give you an unexpected, and maybe unwanted, insight into police-persons and their psychology.

ps: get well soon & have fun with your new found friends

Hi folks,
I`m out, but not at all well, I am going to have to go to Charing Cross twice a day for a drip to finish my treatment...for the next few days...more about why tomorrow as I am not very strong at the moment and am needing a lot of sleep, but I will say that I am so very pissed off with the hospital that I am considering going to the press with what has and is happening :-(

Heh drk your right ;-)
Talking, radios and the fact that they are allowed to use their own, not police issue mobile phones for whatever, and we the patients are not.
Waking up with four H'n'Ks plus eight 9mm Glocks a few feet from you is a little daunting as well.
