Delays returning sexual health test results as Isle of Wight sees spike in demand for testing


Sounds about right for the Island...


At least DNA testing is easy on the Isle of Wight.

A letter in the local newspaper about protecting red squirrels on the Isle of Wight:

From Steve Shaw, Havenstreet:

If, like me, you were brought up on the Island, you will have been taught the red squirrel is a protected creature, and any sightings of their grey rivals should be treated with great caution. As a child I found this confusing. I loved all animals when I was younger.

During a trip to the pub last Friday, my colleague and I discussed the red squirrel situation on the Island. The main takeaway from our conversation is something we both agree on: if the grey variant is the superior, stronger breed, why must we protect red squirrels?

In all my adult years, I have not heard a reasonable argument for this. This seems like nothing more than protecting a creature for the sake of it. Would Robin Hill lose all custom if they disappeared? No. Would Island resources be better spent elsewhere? Arguably.

People suggest grey squirrels are violent — are they? I used to live in Suffolk and my ex-wife and I would come across them regularly on our countryside walks, and they are beautiful creatures — near radiant.

If their violence is purely towards the red breed, then why are we protecting the inferior animal?

Especially with Brexit approaching (or so we are led to believe), we have to learn to protect our strengths rather than defend our weaknesses. It’s what won us the referendum in the first place.

I am yet to hear any concrete argument for this squirrel madness.

If there is one then I would love to hear it but this Island’s enforced protection of red squirrels continues to baffle me.

It's so easy to type "reasons to protect red squirrels" into Google before making yourself seem like an ignorant twat in the newspaper, but then I suppose if Brexiteers could do basic independent research we wouldn't be in this mess.

I don't think I have ever actually seen a red squirrel, it's all been evil immigrant grey squirrels in my experience. Send them back where they came from!

If they are in the UK I genuinely think there'd be calls to start hunting the by the UKIP lot. "Can't kill a black man! Kill a black squirrel instead!" Maybe the slogan would be bang on the nose as that though.

Important pole news!

https://www.gloucestershirelive.co.uk/n ... GIdzFKSb5o

Why is this pole at Gloucester Docks bent over?

Image

A spotlight pole by the Gloucester Docks is leaning on its side this afternoon after apparently getting a dent at the base.

The tall structure is one of several at Orchard Square by the Gloucester Docks.

Citizens have been enjoying the Easter weekend soaking up the sun in the square, seemingly unperturbed by the development.

The pole appears to have a large dent at the base, causing it to point slightly diagonally.

It has left restaurant managers and members of the public scratching their heads as to what happened.

There's a dog on the Isle of Wight called Archie and his owners have the surname Harrison. The new Royal Baby has been named Archie Harrison.

Image

https://www.countypress.co.uk/news/1762 ... -harrison/

Meet the Isle of Wight's Archie Harrison.

Archie, a wire-haired fox terrier, shares his name with the newest royal baby, born to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex this week.

The Island's Archie, seven, lives in East Cowes with owners Robin, Sue and Mike Harrison.

Robin said: "Whe we saw the news we laughed ourselves silly because we couldn't believe it.

"Our Archie does have delusions of grandeur. He controls the household and taps his bowl for his dinner and acts like he is royalty."
