I was visiting someone in Limerick Regional Hospital yesterday. Going in the main door I had to wade through what seemed like hundreds of cigarette butts and associated litter.
The patient I was visiting was telling me about the previous day when fallen cutlery was replaced by the catering staff on another patients plate. The toilets were overflowing with paper waste and the towel rail was long gone. >
What worries me is that this is the dirt we can see - what happens that we can't see ?
On the way out the front entrance was just as dirty...looks like nothing has changed in a year..

Leaving aside the fact that stopping me bringing a bottle of water through security isn't going to prevent the other 37 people on board from cmbining all their little bottles into one big one..
What is beginning to get to me is the insistence (like in Dublin and Frankfurt last week) that I put my passport as well as my wallet through the x-ray machine. So whilst I'm going through the metal detector my only proof of identity is out of my reach and control. In a busy queue what's to stop some langball from whipping my stuff ?
