Saturday Seven Up
There’s a Nurse Pilgrim In Every Hospital

7upLast week saw 77,034 absolute unique visitors make 219,392 visits to view 351,392 pages.

Guido has been doing some digging this week into a Unison representative at St George’s Hospital Tooting. Jane Pilgrim is paid a front line nurse’s salary not to nurse. Instead she is a full-time Unison union bod. Earlier in the week she was slating Lansley in the Evening Standard for coming to the hospital before the election and lying to them about cuts. It turns out “nurse” Pilgrim boycotted the meeting in 2009 for political reasons and made up the quote. 

Guido dug further and it turns out Nurse Pilgrim has been running a sly consultancy firm on the side, and an investigation was launched at the hospitalLook out for more on this “nurse” over the weekend. 

However there is a wider issue at stake. There are thousands of these reps across the country being paid not to teach or save lives, but instead to work for their union. It’s a huge loophole that sees £67 million of taxpayer spending not going to frontline workers, but to the unions, who in turn channel millions of pounds back into the Labour Party. There’s a Nurse Pilgrim in every hospital… 

The top stories last week in order of popularity were:

You’re either in front of Guido, or you are behind…

    It’s absolutely endemic. Kirklees Council pays over £400,000 per year so people don’t do their job + having to hire someone else just adds anothe £400k. Outrageous, yet it was brought in by Major and Cameron hasn’t done a thing.

    Strange how the Conservatives, LibDems and Labour don’t want to talk about the European law change on 1st May 2011 that will allow those in the old Eastern Bloc countries to have full access to UK benefits, which are multiple times more generous than in their country, and unlike in their country, are NOT time limited.

    Ah yes the scented Ms Pilgrim. By all accounts a nasty piece of work. Our redoubtable Guido has opened a seriously unpleasant can of worm here. No doubt the wretched Ms Pilgrim is replicated in every hospital in the Country. More to come on this one I fancy. Apart from being a bare faced liar and a hypocrite, what other personal qualities commends her to the “brothers and sisters” of the TUC?

    Don’t unions take subscriptions from their members to pay for the privileges union bosses enjoy services unions provide? Surely full time union reps should be paid for by the union and not the taxpayer?

    MPs condemn coalition's bonfire of the quangos as botched says:

    Respected parliamentary select committee brands coalition plans as naive and badly managed, and that flagship policy will cost more than it saves

    The government has “botched” its flagship plans to scrap 192 quangos, according to a scathing report by a respected parliamentary committee.

    In the most damning formal assessment of the government’s performance to date, the Commons public administration select committee says the coalition has “poorly managed” its so-called bonfire of the quangos, and failed to achieve its two main aims – to improve accountability and reduce spending, meaning the reorganisation could now cost more than it will save.

    The report suggests the coalition’s ambitions were naive, and says the new government faced difficulties in “translating ambitious pre-election rhetoric into deliverable policy”.

    Bernard Jenkin, the Conservative chairman of the committee said “The whole process was rushed and poorly handled and should have been thought through a lot more. This was a fantastic opportunity to help build the big society and save money at the same time, but it has been botched.

    “I suspect that in the short term the reorganisation will now cost more than it will save. This was put together on the hoof and can be much improved for future reviews.”

    An Australian and a New Zealander are walking through a field one day when they spot a sheep with its head stuck through a fence. The Kiwi turns to his Aussie friend and says

    “This is too good an opportunity to miss”. He steps up, drops his strides and starts furiously sha**ing the poor sheep.

    When he’s finished the Aussie says: “That looked great do you mind if I have a go?”

    “Be my guest” the Kiwi replies.

    So the Aussie steps up, drops his strides and…

    Sticks his head through the fence.

    Engineer says:

    Many large organisations have union reps nominally funded by the company. They were originally employed to do a job, but took up union duties and do them full-time or part-time, but with management’s blessing. Many of them actually do a good job looking after employees interests during disciplinary procedures or when the complexities of employment or pension law confuse just about everyone. One of my former employers had three on the books, in an establishment with a headcount of nearly three thousand.

    It’s not the fact that they exist that’s the problem, it’s what they do. If they are, as described above, being the employee’s advocate and representative, fine. If they’re using their position for political activity, that’s way out of order. They can do that in their own time, and at their own expense. Some of the activities described as ‘nurse’ Pilgrim’s regular duties don’t seem to fall in either category, and one wonders what contribution they really make to anybody’s healthcare, or to any employment dispute resolutions. There again, one wonders what her ‘boss’, the Director of Transformation, actually contributes to anybody’s healthcare, either.

    I think what this story really highlights is utter disfunctionality of NHS management. There are very clearly far too many ‘non-jobs’ clogging up the system and starving the front-line of resources. Good luck to Andrew Lansley in trying to improve things – the NHS is long overdue a major shake-out of passengers, parasites and piss-takers, clearing the decks for those who do want to dedicate themselves to caring for others to get on with it.

Parliament should be recalled, but not for Libya, this should be stamped out immediately. If Unison need full time representation in the work place they should pay for it.

Could all be wishful thinking but it shows how untrustworthy the LibDems are if you discount Clegg from the leadership. It could all kick off after 5 May or it could simply be journos adding 2 and 2 together and arriving at 5

    I’m not sure of the constitutional position if the LibDems break the Coalition at Westminster whether HMQ could send for Miliband if he can form a government rather than allow Cameron a dissolution as sitting PM as we’ve never been in this situation as its never happened before

When you consider Red Ed Miliband was also elected that way you can see exactly what you’ll get with A.V. Anyone fancy another coalition like the current one? Then vote for A.V.

    He’s only jealous because the Queen’s mother had better teeth than he did. And check these two quotes, from the very same page – what an assclown:

    Referring to his late father, the Lucky Jim author Kingsley Amis, Amis says: “Still, I allowed myself to say impetuously when she greeted me: You knighted my father.”

    In a particularly direct attack on the upper classes, Amis says: “As for the British aristocracy, its pathetic. All that snobbery is ridiculous today.”

    “In reality, I’d prefer not to be English,” he added. Well, Martin, they are renowned for their sense of humour and ability to spot and flay pretentious pseuds and wankers a mile away… it must be Hell for you.

    think they would have to get a vote of no confidence in the commons.

    But that usually triggers a general election confused

    Alexsandr says:

    ‘Mr Bercow, whose Commons role comes with a palatial residence overlooking the River Thames, billed the state £20,000 for refurbishing his lavish, rent-free apartment. Part of the cost was a £415 washing machine in 2009.

    But a year later, it broke down and Commons officials spent £438 to repair it.

    Who spends more on repairing a machine than the initial cost? Who authorised that?
    no extended guarantee then?

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
