It’s time for the government to expose the bluff of the spoiled public school left who are spearheading dangerous doctor’s strikes
THE young doctors have gone on strike to pursue their unions’ perfectly reasonable demand for a 35 percent pay rise.
One of the highest paying jobs in the country.
And they’re asking for a raise about seven times what the nurses were expecting.
I bet there will be some chilly exchanges on the wards.
You may have seen the junior docs on the picket lines with their various Socialist Workers Party posters. Demanding “Kick The Tories Out”.
Undoubtedly, this strike is not just aimed at getting more money.
Her ultimate goal is to bring down the Conservatives by wreaking even more havoc on our deranged National Health Service.
One guy you haven’t seen on the picket line is Dr. Robert Laurenson.
dr Robert is 28 years old.
He is the Head of the Junior Doctor’s Branch of the British Medical Association.
He’s the man behind the ridiculous 35 percent salary demand.
So why wasn’t he out there shouting insults at the Tory scum in his exciting pink glasses?
Because he decided to take a vacation instead.
He went to a friend’s wedding.
Leaving the people he demanded had to strike in the cold.
They will lose a lot of wages because they are not at work.
dr Robert not because he took annual leave.
So, as usual, he’ll be picking up his paycheck while toasting the happy couple.
It’s a great case of hypocrisy.
Almost – but not quite – unbelievable.
But dr Robert doesn’t really fit the cliché of a strike leader.
He fits very well into another very recognizable stereotype.
That of the spoiled left-wing public school activist.
Yes, my favorite person.
dr Robert attended one of the finest boarding schools in the country.
And he sits on the board of directors of his family’s multi-million dollar investment firm.
So I assume he doesn’t take the problem of losing money while he’s hitting very seriously.
The wage claim is of course an absurdity.
Especially at a time when the government is doing its best to control inflation.
As Health Secretary Steve Barclay put it, “A militant group appears to have taken over the Registrar’s Committee.”
Barclay commented on the young doctors’ refusal to negotiate and their advertising campaigns aimed at young people.
But Barclay knows that Dr. Robert’s campaign is less about money and more about causing as much trouble and disruption as possible to harm the government.
That’s the not-so-secret agenda.
As is the case with teachers.
Your main union just elected a real moron, a man named Daniel Kebede, to be their leader.
Here is what he said about the strikes called by his members.
It is about “taking back control of an education system from a brutally racist state. . . It’s about much more than the question of pay, it’s about reorganizing society in which we are free from racism and free from oppression.”
That was from a speech he gave. . . the Socialist Workers Party, an organization that wants to overthrow the state by force.
It’s time the government denounced the bluff of these tinny, rapacious Marxist ideologues.
Refuse to negotiate until the claims approach a reasonable amount, no matter how long it takes.
RESEARCHERS have just uncovered a new chapter of the Bible.
It was hidden for thousands of years.
What if it is actually the FIRST chapter of the Bible?
And begins by saying, “All characters and events depicted in this book are entirely fictional and are intended to bear no resemblance to real people, living or dead”?
Eggs a shell shock
WENT to Sainsbury’s to buy some cream eggs like you do.
It was Tuesday evening, the day after Easter Monday.
They didn’t have any.
The stands, from which they had waved me over since about Boxing Day, disappeared.
Erased all existence of these delicious confectionery.
I had the notion that if I had asked any of the staff where their omelettes were, they would say, ‘omelettes, sir? Eggs with cream in them? I dont know what you are talking about. Not in this store.
“Are you unwell, sir? Can I get you medical help?”
So nine months until we can eat them again.
I can’t believe that Jesus would have been content with this condition.
Keir’s ads are a mistake
SIR Keir Starmer intensifies his below-the-belt attacks on the Prime Minister.
I think this is a mistake.
The Labor leader has changed his position on so many issues that he is a sitting duck ready for a truly nasty counterattack.
I mean, we still don’t know if Sir Keir is absolutely clear what the word “woman” means.
And how many votes will Labor lose in those red wall seats if the Tories show this photo of Starmer on one knee?
All, you would guess.
You reap what you sow, Sir Keir.
Game Show Boobies
I WAS WATCHING a TV quiz show with the wife – pointless as it happens.
And the thought came to us: why do people go on quiz shows when they seem to know absolutely everything about everything?
Is it to give friends and family a chance to laugh at how fat they are?
Last episode in the kingdom
MORNING night – phones on silent, bottle of wine on ice and maybe a shot glass of mead.
It’s the premiere of the Seven Kings Must Die movie on Netflix, a conclusion to The Last Kingdom series.
It’s been so long since I’ve enjoyed a TV series, you know — and I’d still watch this one even if the house were burning down around me.
The key to success? Overall a very good cast who clearly really enjoyed doing the five series.
If Uhtred is alive – and I suspect he is, although brilliant star Alexander Dreymon wouldn’t tell me for sure – they should have a follow-up.
Uhtred will be around 70 years old and living in a retirement home where he has to beat some Danes at cribbage.
Remember destiny is everything.
Truth of the abominable thugs
THE extremist Islamist thugs who lead the Palestinian terror group Hamas have delivered their verdict on the murder of a British-Israeli woman and two of her children.
Lucy Dee and her daughters Maia and Rina were in a car when the terrorist struck.
This tall brave man shot the girls in the back as they tried to run away.
Lucy was also shot and later died in hospital.
According to Hamas, all of this was entirely justified and to be expected.
What an absolutely despicable organization.
The only good thing is that it might be an eye opener for some Brits who are foolishly pushing the Hamas cause.
They’re the people who support you, you muggles.
SLIGHTLY odd guy, the Dalai Lama, don’t you think?
If the Pope had asked a small child to suck his tongue, you would probably be looking at his mugshot right now.
And the dissolution of the Roman Catholic Church.
Honestly, one wonders if the Chinese were right about the old bugger all along.
Ban is right
RESPECT to the beautiful actress Sophie Winkleman.
She got her kids from a posh school.
Because every student was given an iPad.
From the age of 6.
She rightly disagreed. “The internet is a toxic wilderness that we leave children vulnerable to stumbling through,” she said.
Quite like that.
The less time kids have on their silly devices, the better.
I know we can’t isolate them from the dimwitted cybersphere forever.
But the later they catch it, the better.
