Epic Failure. Extra strength for those special times when your best isn’t good enough and nobody else cares. This week can seriously go fuck itself.
The Council Against Medical Schemes has won. While another year like 2016 will finally put it out of its misery, the medical schemes industry is dead. Sure, it’s still walking and talking as if it’s business as usual, but it has begin to smell bad and bits keep dropping off. Some are still holding out… Continue reading I wonder what this blog will mean now it’s done
