The union strike cannot be justified – and must result in a total ban on strikes for emergency services

strike shame

Risking lives can never be a legitimate tactic in a strike.

But that’s exactly what ambulance teams from Unison, Unite and GMB will be doing today.

The rapid care provided by 999 emergency services is literally life and death for some of the affected patients

We understand the immense stress faced by many NHS staff, particularly since two years of Covid brought the system to its knees. But that’s not what this argument is about. It’s cash.

And 999 crews are not like regular workers, not even most other healthcare workers.

Their quick presence is literally life and death for some affected patients.

Striking nurses have at least agreed to an emergency occupation. Emergency responders will only intervene when death is imminent.

Some people who suffer a heart attack or stroke today therefore have to find their own way to the hospital. There is no doubt that some will die for lack of a medic.

What a shocking state Britain has fallen into. What a disgusting decision by hard left unions waging a political war.

The government has had to absurdly issue Covid-style health warnings – against exercising, running or “unnecessary” driving. It’s staying home, saving yourself, protecting the NHS from militants.

The aim of the unions is to overthrow the government. They will blame Rishi Sunak for every death they cause – and hope the public will too.

We suspect millions will instead consider the salary offer to these NHS workers – independently assessed by Government – to be fair, especially when our economy is on its knees. They will view with utter disgust the threat to the lives of their families in order to extract even more money.

Not least because emergency workers with overtime and other extras are already getting an average of £47,000 a year plus a potentially 20 per cent pension splurge.

The union strike cannot be justified – and must result in a total ban on strikes for emergency services.

We greet you

OUR troops are not well paid. Still, they’ve stepped up to save Christmas.

That must not remain unrewarded. That’s why we’re resorting to giving a daily border manning and ambulance driving bonus to hundreds of heroes of our armed forces.

Yes, we know money is tight.

But it’s a drop in the bucket compared to what the strikers are demanding.

Don’t be propellants

A 12p per liter increase in fuel economy would be insane.

Pump prices are only now beginning to recover from their stunning and ruinous summer high.

We understand that Rishi Sunak does not want to hobble his chancellor ahead of next March’s budget by now vowing to uphold the freeze hard won by The Sun and others over many years.

But come on PM. A monstrous pump price hike fueling inflation?

That must be a non-runner.
