NHS HE­ROES DE­SERVE 3.9% RISE

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

LAST week on the bus home I had to help an old lady who slipped try­ing to get on board. She hit her head on the pave­ment and got a nasty cut that bled pro­fusely.

I got her to a seat and stopped the blood with my hanky. The bus driver called an am­bu­lance and pas­sen­gers dis­em­barked. Two won­der­ful paramedics gave her treat­ment be­fore tak­ing her to hos­pi­tal. But some NHS staff have seen 14 per cent real-term pay cuts un­der the Tories. That’s why these every­day he­roes need a 3.9 per cent pay rise – they de­serve every last penny. nurse in the coun­try. Then she spent an ex­tra £1bil­lion of your money buy­ing off the DUP to cling to power.

This week May rigged Par­lia­ment by en­sur­ing she has a Tory ma­jor­ity on all se­lect com­mit­tees that scru­ti­nise her, and sweep­ing pow­ers that will en­able her to change laws with­out Par­lia­ment’s ap­proval.

This is some­one who lost her govern­ment ma­jor­ity, lost the con­fi­dence of her party and lost cred­i­bil­ity among the pub­lic.

Now, af­ter she faced de­feat in a Labour op­po­si­tion day de­bate when the DUP said they’d back us, she’s come up with an­other cun­ning plan. Tory MPs won’t vote in op­po­si­tion day mo­tions.

She’s al­ready made sure there’s no Queen’s Speech next year be­cause she’s wor­ried about be­ing de­feated again.

This re­ally is a zom­bie govern­ment, stag­ger­ing on with no lead­er­ship, no sup­port and no clue how to run Bri­tain.
