Yeah, I did that. I just got out of the power armour and floated up though. The Dunwich Borers was quite spooky and disturbing, clearly a homage to Lovecraft and the Dunwich Building from Fallout 3. Level 31, just joined the Railroad. Also, got to romance Piper. The game gives you extra XP after getting laid, which is kind of hilarious
I'm two episodes behind, but yeah, I'm loving the atmosphere and some of the story revelations have been interesting, but the overall plot is kind of spinning its wheels. And I'm not enjoying the idea of a two-year wait for the final season either.
It has been for years. We have private health care in the UK, it just exists alongside but separately to the NHS. The private sector is much smaller but it pays much better, so NHS-trained nurses/doctors etc will sometimes jump ship. It's not a massive problem because the private sector has far fewer jobs, so it's not like everyone working for the NHS can swap over. However, quite a few UK doctors and nurses are leaving the country altogether and going places like Australia, where there is much better pay for fewer hours. The government itself is addressing the problem by completely ignoring it.
Only if by "advancing" you mean "abandoning", sure. New Labour was "left of the Tories", not a left-wing party. New New Labour has been trying to figure itself out, and based on the leadership election the membership wants to actually get back more to their actual left-wing roots. A lot of the MPs are in denial about this and still trying to carry on like it's the Blair heyday (presumably why so many of them want to start bombing civilians for no militarily explicable reason). There's certainly a tension there which needs to be addressed, and sooner rather than later. Whether a left-wing Labour Party can win an election is a different question, and will depend a lot on to what degree the Tories have successfully sold off the country by 2020.
I think it's more the case that the PLP's position, or the position of those who still think in terms of New Labour, is untenable. The leader was elected by the popular wish of the party, so the PLP MPs now have to choose to reflect those wishes or not, and if the answer is not, risk de-selection or resigning. A weakness of New Labour was that it changed its position to allow a whole bunch of wannbe-lightweight Tories into the party, but now the party has moved away from a situation where that is sustainable. Like it or not, the party has moved to the left and its members have to move with it or make the argument that moving to the left was a bad idea. They had the chance to do the latter during the leadership election and were soundly defeated.
Yeah, in the UK you'd have to be a person of extremely selfless and socially-minded conscience - or a nutcase - to go and work in the NHS as a nurse. The private sector, sure, but in the national service the pay is utterly appalling for the hours you do. It's why the service is losing nurses and doctors hand over fist either to the private sector or to immigrants. The teaching sector is starting to get into the same state as well.
This is a pretty important issue and given Cameron's utter failure to answer the question of why 8 UK Tornados are going to be any more successful than hundreds of American, French, Syrian and Russian aircraft in helping topple ISIS, not to mention growing signs that allies like Turkey and Saudi Arabia are being more hindrance than help in this situation, it is clear that the vote should be against the UK joining military action in Syria. Corbyn should slam his authority down and get a consensus vote along those lines from the PLP. Allowing a free vote could weaken his leadership further. In fact, given recent successes on the ground in Iraq, there is a very strong argument that we should keep our focus there. If other NATO forces can bring more firepower to bear on ISIS in Syria and if they can get some ground momentum there going, great, but spreading our meagre forces over two countries (they're not getting any more, our forces currently attacking targets in Iraq are simply going to be spread more thinly than they are now) isn't really going to help anyone.
Watching B7 today is very, very rough going. The production values are astonishingly awful but the acting (mostly) and the viciously amoral storyline are all still pretty damn good. And the ending is horrendous, far darker than almost any other show I've seen (including BB). Walter does push her on her side by accident, which cases her to start choking. It's quite possible that would have happened anyway if he'd not been there, but in that moment he did do it and failed to do anything to resolve the situation. And yeah, Jane was blackmailing Walter but that's after she clocked how dangerous and amoral he was in the first place.
WHAT. WHAT. WHAT. That was unexpectedly great. Do the most experimental thing they've done in ten years, but then avert any possible pretension/wankery problems by folding the story into the one thing fans have been waiting for for ten years. And yes, I think it is time to do it. Whether it's a permanent return or just a one-off adventure and they get sealed away again, but it's important that the Doctor gets to go home after what happened to Clara (and I think it's more likely now she is dead permanently, but they may still timey wimey it). Is the Doctor now canonically 2,000,002,000 years old?
Jane? He didn't set out to murder her, but after he accidentally caused her death he deliberately didn't do anything to save her. Gale was involved in the criminal enterprise, but he certainly didn't deserve to die. He was basically killed solely to save Walter's own skin. And whilst he wasn't an innocent, Mike's death was completely unnecessary, as Walter realised himself whilst Mike lay dying.
I'm still not sure why they got a pretty big actor (relatively) to play that role. Very weird. Either he somehow survives the Canterbury's destruction or maybe he gets some flashbacks later on? Otherwise, seems a weird choice to fly him up to Canada to appear in the show for five seconds when they could have called in some other grizzled white-haired dude who lives much closer to home (although due to Canadianisms I'm hoping he'll show up in another, more substantial role later on).
