Poor Old Junior Doctors (NOT)

September 2, 2016

I am really pi**ed off with the attitude of the junior doctors threatening to strike for 5 days at a time on each of the next 4 months, whilst proclaiming it's only "patient care" they  think about.

How on God's earth can striking on so many occasions, for such lengthy durations, be classed as caring about patients in their care ?

Their own Union recommended acceptance of the Government's proposals last May, but the junior doctors have rejected it, preferring to chant on picket lines to caring for patients.

They say it's NOT about money - they're liars, it IS about money because they want more for working Saturdays, using the slogan "Honk if you want to save the NHS" as a smokescreen.

I just hope all their pay & allowances are stopped during their strike absences, & if so, it just shows how much they normally earn if they can afford to lose the equivalent of almost one months' pay ( 4 x 5 days  of strike action) - I would suggest the average working man could ill afford to do so.

I have no sympathy for the junior doctors now, they have degraded themselves by their infantile chanting and utter disregard for the very people they're supposed to look after - Get Back To Work, I say, & the sooner the better.

unlike us ex military John, they did not sign away the right to withdraw their labour, and don't you wonder why they have not come out on strike or threatened to do so for over 40 years, apart from getting well paid for their labours; as an aside we have to remember that the are required to do almost the same hours,  but not quite 2359 hours a day, we however never had to do 2359 a day, except on a war/exercise footing. It is just like armed forces though in that the decision was taken initially by the BMA, in much the same way as the supposed hierarchy in the forces, they who have done their bit are now making the decisions rightly or wrongly for their juniors/subordinates.  Make the wrong decision in the field and you could die.

don't know what is happening here I  suddenly have five post of my post coming up, to try and catch up with the last post,   because of fatigue. Make a wrong decision in a hospital because of fatigue and somebody else dies. I would also say that HUNT having never done the job has no real idea of what he is trying to impose, to me, he has vested interests not only has this man written a book about dismantling the NHS and putting as much as he can out to private tender, as a  multi millionaire he even has the gall to charge the public purse the cost of learning the Chinese language this of course after marrying a Chinese woman. ( At least he is not batting for the other side so to speak ), mind you with a name like HUNT he is one letter out.

I too am really Pissed Off with them all, they swore an oath years ago to become doctors, (do they still do so???) but it seems this present lot are only SELF SELF  SELF all the time. If they do not stop this stupid action now, they will NOT deserve the vast salaries they do get now, and I say this even though one relative of mine is amongst this present bunch of namby pambies. None of them going on strike deserve to keep their jobs from right now....And if one of them gets injured in any way whilst on strike, I hope the Nursing staff refuse to patch them up if these doctors get ill or injured, after creating MORE work for the hard pushed nursing staff, the real winners in all of this, THEY care for the welfare of their patients, unlike the doctors (are they doctors, or parasites??)
