This is more of a public service broadcast than a party political one but as I have been struck with a cold I thought I'd share my research with you.
Cardiff University has a Cold Centre where people volunteer to be infected with the common cold in the aid of research. Very brave people!
I think their website is worth a look. No chance of a vaccine as there are over 200 cold viruses to cover and also the vaccine couldn't have any side-effects (as the cold isn't that bad).
Colds spread through sneezing and best way to avoid a cold developing is to keep your nose warm.
Public service over. Normal service will be resumed.
