Podcast - 31 JAN 2006

A new podcast is up today - to listen, click on the 'Podcast' link under Blog Links at right.

This week I touch on two topics:
- today is the final day for filing your UK self-assessment tax form; if you haven't submitted your form by close of business today and paid what is due you will automatically be subject to a GBP100- fine; why give money to this grasping government unnecessarily, eh?
- the NHS is an institution supposedly beloved my most Britons. Whilst even I think it has many positive aspects, overall I think it has become just to big and unwieldy, so I concentrate today on two of this government's current 'initiatives' to highlight this.

If you have comments on today's podcast (clarity, content, etc), do let me know.
