So you are saying that you want Boris to raise your taxes in order to pay for better hospital care or do you have another solution that raises more money to spend on healthcare?

I thought you were out because the Dr doesn't look British enough?

Whats an Arabic language expression got to do with anything???!!!

I've given you the facts, what your coming away with just sounds racist now.

I'm saying i want Boris tax the rich to pay for proper hospital care.

But chance would be a fine thing indeed.

He closes Hospitals and Fire Departments down a hell of a lot better than he opens them, that's a given.

I think we can assume the Hospital was full or the child would have been on a bed or gurney rather than a seat or the floor.

Tell you one thing, Hospital floors are not the cleanest of places no matter how many times they are gone over.

No matter how full the place was, putting a wean there on the floor, covered in coats, or allowing the child to remain there is not the best of situations.

I find it unreasonable nevermind nonsensical given the amount of Norovirus doing the rounds nevermind who knows what else is on that floor.

I agree the floor is the worst, but the mom chose to put him there and not keep him in the chair. Now I fault the staff for at least not giving him a blanket. But if the alternative is sitting at home with a freaked out parent in a kid you think may be in trouble, better to be in the hospital one way or another

Why the just the rich? Do they get sick more often than the non rich? And what ievel of income separates the rich from the poor?

Also if it is something you are passionate about why don't you think you should contribute more of your own money to help solve the problem?

The alternative should have been a bed.

NHS trust has released a statement on the matter and offered their apologies.

So obviously the fault is theirs or they would not be apologizing.

But it's down to lack of funding and closures that's just a plain fact of reality im afraid.

Peace be upon you also.

Why would that be?

This has not the slightest thing to do with race.

Only you seem to think so because apparently the Dr is the wrong shade of midnight for your liking.


That's just sad, because the fact of the matter, rather a few Doctors who work in our beloved NHS are of colour or from other places rather the just here.

Thank you for tying to explain how these situations can occur, and how they are actually handled.

Many of these articles are short on facts and are just attempts to create drama and trigger folks emotions.

Yes it can get hectic. Just last week as a Forensic Nurse, and a first responder, I had to wait six hours before my patient could be seen in the ER. I didn't make her lie on the floor, or on the ground, while we waited. Though a six hour wait on a gurney, is way less than ideal.

I wonder if the dude would be British enough for your liking if he was saving your life?

Thanks for the Christmas sentiment, the same to yourself. x

1) Maybe the kid wouldn't have to sleep on the floor if you didn't import a bunch of Pakistanis.

2) People want someone to blame.

3) The media is driving this.

That's right the Pakistanis are responsible.


I thought Alf Garnett was dead ffs. LoL

Seems i was wrong.

Just a thought.

But plenty of those ""imported"" Pakistani nurses and doctors save people's lives every minute of the day and night, no matter there ethnicity, and so do many, many others.

This is not about race or ethnicity, its about politics and lack of funding.

This genius is still going on about lack of funding even though we can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the funding is on a rocket ship to the moon. I'ts unsustainable but hey...let's not blame immigration because you know...that's just racist.

Are you referring to our 4,659 (as of June 2018) Pakistani-trained NHS doctors?

Like the Pakistanis?

Shows your proof then beyond a shadow of a doubt?

I told you Google is your friend.

Your the one with the imagination that alludes to Doctors not being British enough.

What's your problem their genius pray tell, and please be specific? x
