Zahawi asks nurses to take pay cut as ‘message to Putin’

Last Updated: December 5, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Nadhim Zahawi: He claimed public money to heat his stables but he thinks nurses will accept another huge pay cut if he tells them it will help defeat Russian Premier Vladimir Putin.

Minister Without Portfolio Nadhim Zahawi has asked nurses to accept a real-terms pay cut “to send a message to Putin” that the UK will not accept his attempt to dictate to us using energy prices.


Well, see for yourself:

Firstly, this is a non-sequitur. Nurses’ pay has nothing to do with energy prices or what has happened to them because of the war in Ukraine. What message would Putin really take from the UK government denying its underpaid nurses a decent pay rise?

Secondly, let us remember that this is the Tory MP who claimed a large amount of money – on expenses, so it came from the public purse – in order to keep his horses warm during the winter by heating his stables.

He has no right at all to preach to people who are having to go to food banks, simply to be able to eat.

What is he having to go without, to aid the resistance against Putin?

Nothing. And that is precisely what’s wrong with this massive hypocrite.

    Zahowi is a lying, corrupt crook as far as I am concerned…..He must be forced to hand back all the money he has fraudulently taken from the tax payers over the years…

    Hey Nadhim Zahawi and your bros Rusi Sunak et al are you all going to take a pay cut in order to send message to Putin little England won’t remain silent concerning energy prices?

    Of course not and will you Zahawi demand all MPs of whatever political party immediately cease claiming expenses because this will enable the fascist tory fake government to award female nurses their rightful pay rise? Of course not Zahawi because you like your fascist tory bros believe the old mantra ‘do as I tell you not as I do!’

    Minister Without Portfolio? Minister Without Shame would be more appropriate.
