I recommend that ALLe green taxes be abolished. The economy would then become more efficient, buoyant and profitable for all of us.

Actually, I'm not convinced that the NHS is short of money. The NHS is heavily weighed down with a lot of very expensive non-productive management and political correctness. For example; there is money for sex changes and similar trivia, whilst cancer suffers are left out in the cold. There is money for unnecessary vaccinations, that can, and do cause a lot damage to healthy people, resulting in expensive problems, such as autism, to be catered for; special schools etc. Then there is the massive expense of funding Common Purpose courses for NHS staff, courses that are designed to produce a “million change agents” intended to destroy the NHS. There is always money for political change, but ... they never consult the electorate with any degree of honest public debate. Any 'debate' is always a one-sided monologue of meaningless soundbites at 'election time', that are put back in the cupboard when the results are all in.

I agree, too much management.

They moan about a shortage of nurses. I'm not surprised, take Hillingdon. Who decided to demolish the nurses subsidised accommodation and sell it off for private housing ?

Also, why do nurses need to be Uni educated ? Reasonable education and a caring nature, like it was when the NHS worked.

We now have 'healthcare assistants' many of which struggle with English and have no interest in patient care, just to earn money to send home.

Totally agree with you.

So, so TRUE! Nurses DO NOT need a degree. Degrees only encourage so-called nurses to view nursing as a career path to upper management in order to enhance their income.

A nursing degree will cost the under graduate a uni fee of £9,000 per annum for three years; a minimum debt of £27,000 over three years. As an under-graduate 'nurse' they will each spend the vast majority of their 'uni days' actually working on-site in an NHS hospital; unpaid labour. The actual time in uni lectures is very small indeed. This unpaid nursing training is costing under-graduates £9,000 per year for uni fees, plus accommodation and living expenses. Small wonder that the universities are failing to attract would-be nurses today.

A similar situation applies to training teachers, they pay £9,000 per year in uni fees, whilst spending the vast majority of their time working for nothing in schools.

I'm surprised there hasn't been a class action taking the government, and universities, to court for fraud.

Again, I can't help but fully agree with you. But all this political insanity does provide us all with an insight into the minds of the political class and the establishment. An insight that ought have all of us asking very serious questions of the political class.

Do Uni's provide the only pathway to well-paid professional jobs? No. It's absolute nonsense to suggest a nurse needs a degree, what they actually need is compassion, good training, reasonable pay and a dedication to providing excellent patient care.
