Veterinary woes

Last week my favorite podcast in the whole wide world ("More or Less") reported a rather shocking statistic last week regarding the employment situation of British vets.

It would seem that the veterinary community have fallen foul of troubling economic times. Believe it or not the number of unemployed vets claiming welfare have risen by 350%. So as of this week there are now 45 unemployed vets claiming welfare in England, yes that right... 45, not 45 thousand, or 45 hundred... just 45 - but seeing as the base number was a whopping TEN, it seems like an astronomical increase when you consider it in percentage terms.

I'd check out that podcast if I were you.
