    I know ot ain't much, but i cut and paste that as a FB status with"merely a sample " as prefix. People are sharing. I think it would be befitting for others to do likewise

    Sorry, I didn't know how to do that and wasn't sure the originator would want his/her details known, hope that's ok.

    I see no indicator of the originator.

    Surely it s public domain info and collated for a reason?

    Hmm, there might be a lot of reasons why somebody kills him- or herself, but there shouldn't be - and there are a lot of things shoulnt be that way.

    The blog is full of stuff like that. It's based on the writers experience of doing a demo every week outside the first job centre in the country to run Universal Clusterfuck.

    She also has this column, and is a general green party hack.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Now we just need to calculate the "normal" death rate for the same demographic spread, and see where the lumps and bumps are.
    Then we can start making informed guesses about how deaths can be attributed.

    Best if we do this on the other thread and leave this for the RIP.

    Hi. A few months back, I'm sure on Urban (maybe even on this thread, but I have had a quick scan and cant see it) there was a one stop list of suicides, with a paragraph each and a substantiating link.

    Anyone know where I might find it? I want to print it off to hand out to those attending Tory conference. Ta.
