Junior doctors are to strike again in latest Tory government failure

Junior doctors are to strike again (as they did in 2016 when this image was taken).

This speaks for itself:

Junior doctors in England have announced a new 72-hour walkout in June after the latest round of government pay talks broke down.

The strike will take place between 07:00 on Wednesday 14 June and 07:00 on Saturday 17 June.

The British Medical Association (BMA) union, which represents doctors and medical students, said a government offer of a 5% rise was not “credible”.

Ministers said pay talks could only continue if the strike was called off.

Clearly, junior doctors are refusing to be bullied by the Tories, in the face of the anti-strike Bill that’s going through Parliament right now.

Perhaps they agree with Jeremy Corbyn, who has stated that

Doctors and nurses are striking because patients are dying.

In scapegoating NHS staff, teachers, railway workers, posties and civil servants, the government is forcing ordinary people to pay the price for a crisis caused by decades of austerity, economic mismanagement, and corporate greed.

Good; because the Tories might carp about needing “minimum service levels”, but these strikes are happening because the Tories have made it impossible for any such minimum to be met.

The only way to get “minimum service levels” in the NHS is for these doctors to succeed with their strike action.
