Apprentice nurses could treat hospital patients in bid to tackle shortages

What if they make mistakes? This could blight the careers of potentially good nurses while failing to help patients. Jeremy Hunt should have funded the NHS in England properly – but instead he promoted privatisation. This is the result. Hospital patients could be treated by apprentice nurses under plans to be announced by Jeremy Hunt, sparking a new row about how the government is tackling shortages of health professionals.

Apprentice death could have been prevented – but government couldn’t be bothered

Work placement providers’ duty of care for people on apprenticeships and other government-sponsored work placements is being questioned after a factory boss was jailed over the death of a 16-year-old youngster.

The Queen’s Speech (translated) – brief words signifying so much harm

Today the Queen made her speech at the official opening of Parliament. Her words were, as always, written by the government of the day, and therefore it seems appropriate to provide a translation, as follows: “My government’s legislative programme will continue to focus on building a stronger economy so that the United Kingdom can compete and succeed in the world.” Focus on it, but do nothing about it. “It will also work to promote a fairer society that rewards people who work hard.” If you haven’t got a job, you’re…
