PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

WHO KILLED COCK ROBIN ?

NOT THE TOM CAT ?

BRITAIN CANNOT EVEN PROTECT ITS “NATIONAL TREASURES”
IT’S A LACK OF GOVERNMENT & COUNCIL SUPPORT 

HOW DID TOM GET INFECTED ?-
JUST SO OTHERS CAN AVOID A DOSE-
AND WHO FAILED TO PROTECT HIM FROM COVID CONTACT –
100 NOT OUT ? JUST

HOW SAD BUT WATCH THE ADULATION ON THE TV

Captain Sir Tom Moore dies at 100 after testing positive for Covid
Fundraiser and second world war veteran was knighted after raising £38.9m for the NHS

Captain Sir Tom Moore, the second world war veteran who raised almost £39m for NHS charities during the first coronavirus lockdown in spring 2020, has died aged 100 after testing positive for coronavirus.

His daughters, Hannah and Lucy, confirmed Moore’s death in a statement.

Moore was admitted to Bedford hospital on Sunday after being treated for pneumonia for some time and testing positive for Covid-19 last week.

In a statement posted on the veteran’s Twitter page that same day, his family said he had been treated at home until Sunday when he needed additional help with his breathing.

Hannah Ingram-Moore said her father had not needed to be taken to an intensive care unit.


A spokesperson for Moore’s family told the BBC at the time that he had not received a Covid-19 vaccine because of the medication he had been taking for pneumonia.

Moore’s fundraising efforts during the first national lockdown in April last year raised £38.9m for NHS charities after his pledge to walk 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday captured the imagination of fans from around the world.

Boris Johnson said Moore’s “heroic efforts have lifted the spirits of the entire nation”, while the Duke of Cambridge praised him as a “one-man fundraising machine”.

The indomitable spirit he embodied inspired the nation, and he went on to break two Guinness World Records – becoming the oldest person to get a No 1 single in the UK charts and raising the most money for doing a solo charity walk.

Born in Keighley, West Yorkshire, in April 1920, Moore completed an apprenticeship as a civil engineer after finishing school and then joined the army. In 1940, he was selected for officer training and rose to the rank of captain, later being posted to the ninth battalion of the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment in India.

He served and fought in the Arakan in western Burma, since renamed Rakhine State, and went with his regiment to Sumatra after the Japanese surrender.

After the war, he returned to the UK and worked as an instructor at the Armoured Fighting Vehicle School in Bovington, Dorset. He lived in Kent for many years before moving to Bedfordshire in 2007 to be with his family.
