    Goldie every day I check out news and every day there is a story of what the EU is doing wrong. How dare people refer to the U.K. as insular or isolationists. They need to have a quick look at their beloved Brussels commission? What they tried to do to us and what they are doing to Canada and Australia is just another example of how they work.
    As you know they are stalling on a deal for our services so they can try and steal business. It’s another cheap trick by a mafia run organisation. It’s good news they were are cutting the strings daily and dealing with new partners.

    Vont der liein seems even worse than the drunkard, Junckers. She was useless as a German minister too. This is the concern. Someone senior fails in their own government and gets booted to Brussels as a consolation. Brussels won't get the most talented because individual member states want to keep them!

    Just listening to business news and they are hailing Lord Hill reforms and the breaking away from the EU with big companies joining the U.K. listings. I posted a couple of links yesterday.

    Where are all the ‘Euro fans’ that spent years calling the U.K. ‘isolationists’ and ‘inward thinking’ when they do this to Canada and Australia? no wonder they have yet again fallen silent as you can’t defend the indefensible... although I think one or two might?

    Just wondering......would many on here support any industrial action taken by NHS staff ?
    And if I strike was to happen, do you think it would turn public opinion massively against us ?

    Don’t ask a question if you don’t want the answer.

    Just my view - the public are firmly on the side of NHS staff after a hugely difficult year, and 1% pay rise looks mean. The achillies heel to industrial action is if people in the private sector continue to lost jobs and unemployment rises. I'd much prefer to see pressure put on govt to increase the rise without a strike

    You don’t have to debate this with me as there are plenty of others that would be interested.
    Not long ago posters on here mocked me over Captain Hindsight. I said then he was a dud and he is. All those praising him have fallen silent?
    I also said that the EU was being run like the mafia. Again I was mocked and told that the U.K. was ‘protectionist’. Funny those voices have also fallen silent? Actually the way they have acted of late you must be an idiot trying to support them.
    Finally I said the City was the best and would do okay. I was again mocked and told all the companies would leave. Again that never happened and it now has record investment and a bright future. Funnily again those voices have fallen silent?
    for someone who is ‘uninformed’ I do get quite a bit right?

    Yes mate. Totally get it and it wouldn’t take much to turn public opinion against us. However I’m not sure if I can think of any other way, as NHS workers, if putting pressure on the government...other than the threat, or taking of, industrial action.

    The government will take account of public opinion. When you have generally right leaning journos like Nick Ferrari on LBC rubbishing the pay rise, it's time for the govt to think again

    Public pressure. Journos at interviews, pressure groups, petitions independent opinion polls etc. The govt's PR people will pick this up. May be the 100k epetition to force a vote in Parliament

    Surely NHS staff could share the £350m a week Brexit bonus between them?

    Stainesy needs to hire a bus.
