Mid Staffs

78 days ago

In the face of the Covid emergency the NHS (envy of the world) deals with really matters: pronouns

The NHS, the envy of the world please do not mention Mid Staffs, is – as we are always told – underfunded and staffed by heroes. But as I have noted before, it does employ some folk to tweet the most almighty piffle out into the wider world. Today, the envy of the world addresses the BIG issue we all grapple with: misgendering. I present the tweet below, with no need for additional comment.

Jon Snow and Little Matt at Channel 4 Fake News cream themselves as Naomi Klein spouts golden liberal shit to plug her new book

She has a book to plug so best selling harpie Naomi Klein is doing the rounds of the liberal media to talk about what a complete bastard Donald Trump is. Okay she is Canadian but the accent is good enough, she is THE expert one needs to talk US politics. On Channel 4 Fake News, where they make up quotes by Donald Trump to show what a racist he is, Jon, "I hate the fucking Tories" Snow was asking the soft questions. Purring from the sidelines was Matt Frei who likes to accuse black vicars of being racist for supporting Trump.

How much is your greedy, overpaid GP swindling you out of?

No you can't say that Mr Winnifrith, please remember that all the doctors are saints. Okay GP's earn £100,000 on average and are in the top 1% of wage earners and even the junior greedy bastards, when not on strike, are in the top 21% as they do their apprenticeship but doctors are not in it for the cash. They do it because they are all fecking saints.

As such, please do not mention that a survey published today shows that a good number of NHS surgeries are still getting their mug customers ( sorry patients) to call them on premium rate phone lines costing up to 41p a minute. 

Hmmm Mrs Jones,

Junior Doctors Strike, the hard data which shows how greedy the bastards are

Once again the middle class kids serving a very well paid apprenticeship before qualifying to join one of the best paid closed shops in Britain, with guaranteed job security, are on strike again. Don't bash the doctors they, are all saints who just care about patients and the NHS say the lefties - if you criticise them who are a fascist who is on ther side of cancer, they add. Of course the hard data says otherwise.

The Junior Doctors serve an apprenticeship for an average of 8 or 9 years starting aged 22-24. So the average junior doctor is in his or her late twenties on an average salary of £35,000. Put another way they are better paid that 79% of the population - source HERE. Compared to their age group peers they are doing even better. And then once you qualify the real gravy train kicks in.
