Scrapping health bill could save 6,000 nursing posts, says Labour
Scrapping the bill could save 6000 nursing posts!! This is the asinine world of political soundbite statistics, we could build x number of hospitals etc., etc. In 1974 I had been nursing for 11 years, the Tories back then had made 'absolutely unchangeable inroads into the destruction of the NHS' Each change of government has whittled away the principle of patients first and free at the point of delivery. It's a bit late for Labour to wax lyrical when you consider what occurred on the 13 years of their watch.
We all know by now that most politicians are hypocritical self serving pigs! were they not we wouldn't be trying to secure our pensions and a future pay rise whilst they inflate theirs and enjoy expenses that make our £11 evening meal allowance away from home look like a mean tip on one of their meal allowances. We might also consider the lifestyles enjoyed by our Union leaders paid for by our subscriptions. Truly, gravity is a myth, the world sucks.
We should save some of our contempt for the 'leaders' from all areas who have led us to the unholy mess that is today. After 49 years in nursing I have finally pulled e plug, the only downside of retirement is the thought that I might end up in hospital, a thought that might cause me lack of sleep.
One of nursings greatest leaders, Trevor Clay once said that "nurses have always been politically aware, it is their misfortune as a profession that they have never acquired political astuteness" Never more true than today.
