Regular readers will remember the fun that Guido had with Nurse Pilgrim, the Unison rep posing as a nurse to smear Lansley, who was making money on the side with her sly consultancy firm and lives in a hippy commune. Yeah, that one.
Well to cut a long story short, Jane Pilgrim’s poison has come to the attention of Parliament, and an EDM has been tabled to fight against the thousands of union officials, just like Jane Pilgrim, depriving the public sector of a front line salary:
Trades Union Officials Funded from the Public Purse. EDM 1799
That this house notes the existence of full time Trades Union officials whose salaries are paid by the taxpayer; further notes that these have been nicknamed “Pilgrims” by the media as a reference to Jane Pilgrim from UNISON who attacked the government whilst claiming to be a nurse, it was subsequently shown that she didn’t practise but instead claimed an NHS salary to work for the union; believes that this practise is deplorable; further believes that we do not know how many Pilgrims there are in Britain but each one deprives the taxpayer of valuable frontline services; resolves to continue to work towards a ban on Trades Union Pilgrims.
Guido knows there are MPs reading this, and he might put you on the nice, rather than the naughty list if you sign it.
