Want to earn £60,000 in just one weekend from the grateful taxpayer - become a Welsh GP!

Naturally, the media love this stakhanovite hero of the NHS. Dr Eilir Hughes works in rural Wales as a GP, a profession where the average pay is already £100,700. Natch,Dr Hughes reckons that the NHS is massively underfunded by the Evil Tories and needs far more cash,not least for inflation busting pay rises all round. But before you consider crowdfunding for the poor lamb…

The Government is paying GPs £15 per booster job administered.  Natch this has prompted some of the lazy Shipman’s to abandon at least one round of golf a week to come an administer a jab which appears not to offer very complete protection for very long and which has unknown side effects. But some Shipmans go further than others. Citing his duty to protect the community, the noble Dr Hughes set himself a target of 4,000 jabs in one weekend.  That would net his practice £60,000.

Ah well, for lavatory cleaners on £25,000 and already facing a marginal tax rate of 33.25%, it will be some consolation to know their hard earned is going to such a deserving cause. A knighthood surely beckons for Dr Hughes. Let’s all go into the street to bang pots and pans in his honour. and anyone suggesting that he is just another greedy, self-serving, bastard must surely be guilty of some sort of hate crime.
