  • i do know some nurse`s ect do make comments that patients may not live much longer, but to predict a time and for it to happen at that time still concerns me. i have never heard of a nurse, doctor or consultant being able to predict an exact hour of death,even for patients who are critical/pallative. to predict this for a stable patient is even more unheard of. i was also concerned with the very high levels of insulin in the patient. on this case alone these 2 issues are very concerning.

  • @thetruth8720

    Prof Vincent Marks - a leading expert on insulin poisoning - said the jury at Norris's trial was led to believe by experts that a cluster of hypoglycaemic episodes, among people who were not diabetic, was sinister.

    The professor said international medical studies carried out in the years since the 35-year-old Glaswegian was convicted told a different story.

    "Looking at all the evidence, all I can say is I think Colin Norris's conviction is unsafe," Prof Marks said.

  • one thing that made me think he was guilty was his own words. something he has admitted and matched the report of the nurse he said it to. at the start of his shift he told a nurse that a certain patient would die at a certain time.not only did he predict correctly that a death would happen that night, he also predicted the correct patient and he predicted the correct time. to predict the death of a stable patient is very rare, to predict a time too, is unheard of, concerns me.

  • @thetruth8720 i wonder how many nurses / careworkers have said the same over the years , i know my mum would come hame and say such and such wont make it through the night, to spend years in jail for a simple phrase is so so wrong the evidence on the other hand has been proved to be wrong what about the evidence the police held back etc etc , love and light

  • other things concerned me. in his interview he stated that he didnt like how old people smell, especially women. that is not a very caring and is judegmental + discrimative. this goes against all of the ethics and roles of a nurse. and during his interview concerning the death/murder of a patient he took time to point out/joke that he did most of the work that night. i found that comment chilling, very cold. his defense about predicting ethels death was his sense of humour, shocking.

  • @thetruth8720 i have no connection to Colin or his falily but the more i read aboot thye case etc the more i know there is doubt and i believe the guy to be innocent . The police had him guilty from the strat and twisted so much of the evidence in their favour the hundreds of hours of tape with him being interviewed and they choose to show only what suits them .

  • @dafthermit we all handle pressure in different ways black humor being a well known case. to be innocent and put under the constant pressure by the police the press and the media . in the last few years we have seen cases that have fallen doon after everyone had had the person guilty hung drawn and quartered. i dont trust the press as a whole . love and light

  • @dafthermit sorry aboot the spelling but the wee hovel is being hit by a storm and it ius rocking,so hard to type

  • grouping all the cases together is dangerous + wrong, but on the one case where colin predicted the death + the time, was the last nurse with the patient + was the last person to use the insulin fridge, insulin was then missing, the patient was not diabetic and was found to have insulin levels at over 1000 units! on this case prof vincent marks did state that for levels this high the patient had either recieved insulin or a medication that prevents patients making glucose. she was on neither.

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
