It has been a very busy day. Sorting a Aussie friend out this morning to see the way clear. We all come to cross roads and we have to see the right path. I hope he has seen things clearly and can travel onwards.
I had the local Radio phone up for my views on the 100% won on the Mesothelioma Bill.
Chris Knighton had a nice piece in her local Paper.
Asbestos widow Chris Knighton has welcomed new rules for asbestos compensation.
The government has announced that asbestos-related cancer suffers are to receive up to £54,000 extra in compensation.
Under new rules for the government’s Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme, compensation will rise to match 100 per cent of average civil claims, up from the current 80 per cent, which could mean an increase of up to £54,000 a person, according to Ministers.
The change has been welcomed by Chris, who has dedicated her life to campaigning to help those affected by the deadly condition since her husband Mick died from the asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma in 2001.

Then my local radio phoned me up again and wanted to do another write up in our weekly rag. So that was a longer interview and she is going to get in touch with the Royal Marsden as she wants to know more about my trial and to be honest I would rather they told her as I don’t know how far I can report about the trial yet. I said also to talk to Prof Fennel as he knows me and my case. She said Everyone knows you Mavis —Oh dear !!!
I broke off for lunch and snoozed for a while and didn’t even know Ray had taken Louis for a walk. came back to my computer and there was a Request from Saatchi Bill.
We need your help they said.
Right now we need to ensure the Lib Dems know that patients up and down the country want this Bill.
If they don’t agree to allow debating time the Bill is dead.
