I presume that applicants would be vetted with the police but the non requirement of any medical expertise is ridiculous.

It is ridiculous, as most of the people would be the elderely who have no family left, and after a stay in hospital would no doubt have either wounds, medication to take etc.  So how can lay people act as nurses all of a sudden and look after them, it is utter madness.  It certainly leaves it open to people abusing the system and only doing it for the money and not looking after their 'lodger' properly.  I just cannot imagine who could think of such a stupid idea. 

How would it work, would the 'carers' have to be in all day, or would they work, if so what would be the point.  Even if in all day, they would need to go out occasionally and leave the person, so what happens in the case of an accident, a fall or something, could they then be sued for not giving proper care?  It would seem to be a minefield of problems imo.

Wouldn't work. But the benefit to the Government would be massive. In Hospital if a major problem occurs a DR. would attend within 3 minutes to preserve life. In somebodies spare room an Ambulance (if one was available) would take on average of about 7 minutes to attend. In a none breathing/heart stopped patient brain death starts after 3 minutes. Euthanasia but in a different name. Pensioners are a big drain on the Economy. The kids today will have to work until they are 80 ( Working Class).

I have heard of this rare phenomenon before but not in circumstances like this involving surrogacy.

More information here as to why the differences between the babies were obvious!

An unusual case here - normally people have a shock on learning that they were adopted and that their mother is not their biological one; this is the other way round.

I take her remark about being homeless as a joke but I have to say that it does seem a little hypocritical of her not to have let her flat to refugees!

The carousel did start up at 2 a m apparently and Granny had to hop off quickly!

Excluding McCann stories, this has to be one of the silliest of the year.

Wonder what that headmistress would do with a kid going through chemotherapy causing hair to fall out.
