Junior doctors to stage full walk-out under BMA plans for industrial action


This is simple. The government will not sit down without pre-conditions. It isn't a negotiation. I'd be served divorce papers or be fired by my practice if every meeting I demanded all the outocmes I wanted but was willing to negotiate on the choice of biscuit. I do hope that if strike action occurs it seriously rattles the government or upsets the public, consultants and GPs so much we all protest louder on the whole workforces behalf. And if anyone throws the vocation word again I'll cheerfully write it on a placcard and see if it reaches the caecum.
