We offered the NHS nurses 1%, plus a weekly clap for eight weeks.This is completely inadequate - it should have been at least nine weeks.
Seriously, though. a 1% increase, adjusted for inflation, is approximately Fanny Adams. By the way, I saw her grave once.
These people have been working all hours, at great personal risk, and we're offering them bupkis. A lot of people are up in arms about this. My prediction is that this is going to lead to another U-turn by our oven-ready government.
The Tory government is all about U-turns. I doubt if they're doing it on purpose, I think they genuinely are clueless.
