The Strike Ballot is Here!

Posted on 30 March, 2012 at 2:54
Well, finally the BMA have seen the light. They are going to ballot all their members over industrial action. They want doctors, for a 24-hour period, to go to work but refuse to do some routine things like clinics. Of course, emergency work will still be carried out as one might expect. Tough eh?
Truth is, the BMA have always been a toothless tiger when it comes to action. They will be more effective if they embark on a really tough, hard-line, radical leaflet campaign. 24 hours? It is like a bank holiday and nothing more. What is required is concerted action. All NHS work should stop apart from life-saving surgery or medical emergency work. It should continue until the government concedes it is wrong. We have to fight for our younger colleague's pensions and simply being polite and weak won't cut any ice. 
The medical pensions are self-sustaining and already produce millions in revenue for the exchequer and now the greedy SOB’s want twice as much in contributions from us. As far as I know, medical pensions are the only ones that make money for the government and always have. And to cap it all, they’ve linked pensions to the CPI so the value of pensions will reduce year on year. Combine this with the current three-year pay freeze and one wonders why anyone would want to be a doctor in this country. It sure isn’t for money.
Meanwhile back at the piggy farm, the PM entertains his supporters to dinner if they pay a few six-figure sums to the Conservative Party.The last Tory government was thrown out ignominiously because of sleaze and after the last election, I wondered how soon the rot would set in. It’s happened so fast it has surprised even me.
My favourite quote? Politics gets its name from the Greek ‘poly’meaning many and as most of us know ‘ticks’ are blood-sucking parasites.
