    A Sad Day For All Cristina Vido Detained

    You had a referendum on that in 1999 and came to the conclusion that having the British monarch as Head of State was the worst possible option - apart from all the others. Apart from Switzerland, who seem to do referendums rather well and use them as a tool of government, all the recent...

    Advance Care Directive

For those who don't know, it's a legal framework to ensure clinicians do - or most probably don't do - what you intend when your...
