  1. Seriously, I know a few have spoken out but only a very few. Where the hell are all the healthcare workers who should be speaking out about this? Are they too stupid? Too indoctrinated? Too selfish? Too gutless? What is it? Do they somehow think they and their families will be safe from it all? They are in for one very nasty shock if they think the government cares any more about them than it does the rest of us.
  2. Posted elsewhere on forum but will add here. I've just spent 8 days in hospital after admission via A&E. I really don't like what I saw. Lots of elderly patients unable to feed themselves. Not being assisted to eat by staff. Elderly patients were also not drinking and yet no drips were put up for them. No mouth care being given. Three deaths on the ward in the time I was in. I've been in hospital 15 times in the last two and a half years and this is the first time I have seen this. Usually a referral to a dietician would be made, a feeding tube put in if necessary or high calorie drinks prescribed at the very least. This time, I was left wondering if this is part of the governments covid policy to basically off the 'useless eaters'. One ladys' son came in, he was in his late sixties and he was questioning it but just getting fobbed off by staff. He kept saying how when she had been admitted, his mum was 'bright as a button', could feed and wash herself etc. He said that she now looked like something out of a concentration camp. His distress was awful to witness. It wasn't just me who noticed it. I was in a bed next to a lovely lady who trained as a nurse in the 1960's. We both picked up on it and were appalled. I feel the elderly continue to be thrown under the bus and are just being left to decline and die. The lady next to me (in her 70's) felt so strongly she was determined she would not end up at their mercy in hospital and would end her life before it got that far. Patients are only 'allowed' on visitor a day for an hour. Thats not long enough for relatives to spot whats going on. Very convenient. There were very few English nurses on the ward. Most of the nurses were foreign (many bought in from the Philippines) with many whose level of English was not up to standard; it was clear they did not understand what their patients were saying to them. Cant say anything though can you as straight away you will be branded as racist. Was an exceptionally depressing experience and I did not feel safe. I have more confidence in my cats vets than I do the majority of the medical profession. This is not a society to grow old in. Perhaps it never was. If you are elderly and you end up in hospital at their mercy then god help you because the NHS wont.
  3. The added trouble is, relatives are only allowed an hour to visit and each patient is only allowed one visitor. Relatives don't get to see what's going on. It was awful to see. Makes me feel physically sick and most people don't even seem to care what's happening to our elderly and vulnerable :(

  6. Where we live, many of the local businesses are every bit as bad! Job ad from one yesterday (the job was packing up 'artisan' popcorn) stating that the successful applicant must prove they had received both injections. We have a pub landlord (the pub is independent and not part of a franchise/chain) who is stating you cant drink in his pub unless you prove vaccination. Completely bonkers!
  7. My husband works for one of the largest supermarket chains in the country. He and his colleagues have certainly noticed the difference. Where lorries were previously coming in full of pallets, they are now often turning up with only 4 and night shift who unpack are left twiddling their thumbs. The majority of people are being far too short sighted and blasé about the supply chain and food production. Their choice I guess.
  8. Makes me laugh that anyone can possibly still believe a petition is going to achieve anything!!! Even if a petition gets enough signatures all it actually achieves is a brief consideration/discussion by a bunch of psychopathic, corrupt liars otherwise known as parliament. The time for petitions is long past.
  9. Which is exactly why building the smart grid that will control us all is so very easy for the elite and has been a done deal for a long time. Its amazing I and those of my generation survived as a teenager/young adult with no internet, no crappy Netflix/Amazon Prime/Britbox etc to binge watch, no mobile phone, no inclination to watch much TV as we were too busy being out and enjoying ourselves, no sat navs in cars because we could read maps. How on earth we all survived and made it is amazing!!!!
  10. No one has ever been forced to wear a mask; all who have done so have chosen to of their own free will. People can make all the excuses they want but that's the fact; if someone has worn a mask they have done so out of choice. I have two friends who are health care workers who haven't worn a mask from the first. Both stood their ground against the threats made against them by their employers, both went to HR etc and in both cases both were successful and their employers backed down. Some have the confidence, conviction and courage to stand up for their rights and some (many) don't. Just say you are exempt.
  11. I too worked for the NHS. It is a postcode lottery and has been for a very long time with regards to many different types of treatment. Its a well known and thoroughly documented fact.
  12. So different people are having different experiences. Hardly anything new is it? Getting decent NHS treatment has always been a postcode lottery.
