Headline

Ms May can stop the strikes, but only if she wants to

Comment

I totally disagree with the sentiments of this article and all following contributors . This strike is in the main only about money not by high minded principles of patient care as the increasingly militant Junior Doctors Committee would have us believe.The BMA negotiators agreed a perfectly reasonable deal with the government which it recommended to its members only to have it thrown out by the JDC. The JDC are totally against balloting all the juniors as they know there ISNT support for these totally disproportionate set of rolling strikes. They are asking the juniors to give up a quarter of their pay by taking part in these strikes whilst the organizers of strikes at a local level can claim £250 a day in expenses including first class travel and hotel accomodation from its union the BMA. There is a strong left wing bias including political activists Momentum and Corbynistas within the JDC. The JDC does NOT represent the views of the vast majority of juniors and brings the medical profession into disrepute by playing politics over this issue.
