Racist candidate to be NHS England boss wants to clear ‘foreigners’ out of the service

Dido Harding: now we find she’s a racist as well as a Tory money pit and expertise vacuum.

This is blatant kite-flying.

Dido Harding has suggested a racist employment policy for NHS England, if she gets the job as boss.

She’s probably doing this to gauge whether there are enough ignorant racists in the country to support it – and thereby support the dismantling of the National Health Service in favour of a profit-making business in which your health is a commodity that you can only afford at the right price.

She says – well, read it for yourself:

Dido Harding is vowing to end the NHS’s reliance on foreign doctors and nurses if she becomes head of the health service in England – despite Matt Hancock previously urging a ‘new Windrush generation’ to help fill jobs.

The Tory peer has made ending the ‘prevailing orthodoxy’ that staff are better sourced from abroad part of her pitch to take over from Sir Simon Stevens next month.

However, two years ago Lady Harding penned a report admitting that the NHS must ‘increase international recruitment in the short to medium term’.

You see, the NHS cannot function without doctors, nurses and support staff from other nations. It never could. There aren’t enough home-grown medical staff in the UK and Harding knows it (see the last paragraph of the quote from the Mail, above).

But by omitting to mention that fact, she’s trying to fool you into believing that Johnny (and Janey) Foreigner aren’t needed and shouldn’t be wanted.

Result? If she gets her way, it’ll be the removal of foreign national employees from the NHS and the subsequent collapse of the service.

And you’ll get the blame because you’ll have supported it.

Fortunately, it seems few people do:

I like this idea – praising foreign-born medical staff working within the NHS for their life-saving work:

Of course, Russ added this…

I also like this – NHS staff of foreign origin pointing out the good work that they do, in contrast to … whatever it is Harding claims to get up to:

Will a backlash stop Harding from getting the job?

Probably not…

I mean, take a look at her record (courtesy of Private Eye) and you’ll see a catalogue of disasters – none of which have stopped her from bagging increasingly important and high-paid roles, which she then trashed.

It’s an outrage that Harding is doing this.

So, what are we going to do about it?

Report her for racist hate speech?

    Oh dear just another devil in disguise whot a bramer these are just hate filled people are the toerags oh we had a chance with a decent man has our leader but hay no they bring damnation down on the rest

    It depends on HOW she wants to reduce reliance. If this is a long-term plan to be achieved by improving pay and conditions and providing more training places, this would be a good thing. Sadly, I don’t think it’s what she has in mind.

      I don’t think that’s what she has in mind. I think she just wants to (with apologies to people of colour across the UK and the world) “clear out the darkies”. Absolutely despicable that this kind of small-minded Little England racism still exists in the UK in the 21st century. She needs to be taken in hand and given a mandatory education in why she is a racist.

    FFS how many levels are this woman stupid on with this BS she is spouting – First, it’s sodding racist!!! Let’s get that out the way, she is trying to flag shag. Next practicality it takes what 7 years to train a doctor and 3 for a nurse? Sorry not sure and there are less than 20 medical schools in the UK. Maths don’t work there methinks…

    So unless the Tory scum is going to massively invest in the NHS??? Yeah, I don’t see that EVER happening do you? So can someone please just shut her up! Like everything else this woman has failed at every job look how much she F’ed up the track and no trace for billions of wasted money because she is incompetent!

    Now she wants to mess up something bigger more complex and important this is so stupid and she needs to be stopped!

    Tories don’t give a monkey’s what you and I think and will carry on unopposed.creating that 1930’s dictatorship utopia that pathetic buffoons like Reece Mogg and Bojob could only have dreamed of before.
    This Dido appointment,
    The regression of stopping 16/17 year old’s marrying in England (David Mundell Conservative MP for Gretna rubbing his hands with glee)
    That Nazi style British song the Education Department endorsed,
    Prosecution of even a single protester raising his/her voice
    Blatant misuse of Covid funds on political electioneering (Bojob laughed today when SNP confronted him)
    Wholesale (opt-out only) NHS records for sale to anyone willing to pay

    I could go on but it’s too depressing to think about it any more, project creep has become Project “Try and stop me”
