Tory activists are calling talk radio phone-ins to attack strikers

Last Updated: October 9, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

LBC and Nick Ferrari should vet their callers a little better, perhaps?

It seems a pro-Tory journalist phoned Ferrari’s radio show to claim that nurses – who are currently being balloted on strike action – should not go out on strike because now is not the time.

She also claimed that nurses are on £27,000 a year and are therefore not hard-up.

In fairness, Ferrari asked, “If not now – when?”

And the journalist caller complained about her own salary and said she would love to earn as much as nurses. I wonder how much she does earn, writing for the Torygraph and the Spectator?

Here’s the clip:

The message is clear: the people in the Tory government know they can’t win any arguments by lying to us about nurses, so they’re putting their stooges up to repeat the lies as though they were members of the public like you.
