Tories can be murderously vindictive, can’t they?

They are currently working hard to attack NHS staff for daring to bring down the Covid-19 death toll. It seems clear that Boris Johnson and his cronies were hoping to see many more deaths, considering the way they are penalising the people who helped stem the tide.

They want to cut NHS staff pay as part of a belt-tightening regime to cope with the cost of dealing with the disease (even though the Tories themselves had known it was coming but stopped any preparation for it).

They intend to make Covid-19 testing a taxable benefit-in-kind for employees, meaning NHS staff will have the cost of their regular tests removed from their pay.

And now they are going to impose charges on NHS staff, simply for driving to work; free car parking is to be removed from NHS hospitals in England.

This is not the way to reward people who risked – and sometimes sacrificed – their lives to save the rest of us.

The Mirror reports:

Councils and NHS trusts in England were given cash by the government in March to suspend fees for hospital workers “during this unprecedented time”.

But last week health minister Edward Argar declared the subsidy “cannot continue indefinitely”.

Isn’t it funny that, here in Wales, we don’t have parking charges at our hospitals – because we didn’t invite private companies in to profit from other people’s illnesses?

It seems to This Writer that the answer isn’t ending a subsidy that protects NHS staff from parking charges that should never have been imposed in the first place.

The answer is to clean out the parasites from NHS car parks.
