    Teachers and NHS staff exploited? care workers and teaching assistants maybe, but not teachers and nurses.

  4. Do you mean the same teachers and NHS workers who haven't lost a day wage in all this and their pensions have still been paid in full.

    I'm with the teachers and the hard working NHS staff. But we have all suffered. Some alot more than others. I consider myself lucky as my treatment has walked along side the pandemic. It could not have worked any better for me. But I know people who's mental health and finances
    are shot to peices.
     

  5. As was Australia... all I wanted was a better life. But is Australia didn't need skilled qualified plumbers then they would not have let me in.... and right in my opinion.

    All I wanted was to experience a different part of the world at someone else’s expense! Didn’t much like the place or the people so me and Mrs Mottie-to-be slipped off back home halfway through a two year contract.

    They were working.

    Tory bots have not logic, on the one hand they argue for the free market to allocate resources but then decry it when it leads to outcomes of unemployment and lower wages.

    Stick to one point.

    As to mental health provision - who has cut those service to the bone.

    Nurses worked through the pandemic in appalling conditions with inadequate PPE.
    The government cut the pandemic emergency stockpile by 40% over the years.
    Nurses pay fell by 7% over the last decade
    The much promised pay increase offered was 1%
    Both nurses who worked to save BJ resigned in protest

    Over 600 frontline NHS staff including many doctors died. All they got was a round of claps.

  12. Construction industry accounts for Moore death than any other line of work in this country. This same fellas who build hospitals hotels and homes.

    And Johnson thought they deserved a 1% pay rise.

    Less than inflation.

    Interesting you point that out. In fact 1500 health care staff that died - so thats quite signigicantly more than the 34 construction deaths. So at that rate the medical deaths would account for about 44 years.

    But props to your whataboutery.

    Were these construction workers on the frontline dealing with the pandemic?

    Have you ever lived in a country with uncontrolled immigration?

    Where was it?
