BNP Nurse ban looming

Call for nurses to be banned from joining BNP at conference


Call for nurses to be banned from joining BNP at conference

27 March, 2009 By Richard Staines
Nurses and health staff from the union Unison are to debate whether registered nurses should be banned from joining the far-right British National Party (BNP) at a conference next month.
Police are already banned from joining the BNP because of fears that its extreme political views will affect officers’ conduct.

However the publication of a list last year of BNP members showed that several practising and former nurses were members of the party.

The motion, ‘BNP policy is incompatible with nursing’, to be debated at next month’s Health Group Annual Conference in Harrogate in April.

It reminds nurses that the Nursing and Midwifery Council code stipulates that nurses should never discriminate against people under their care.

The motion says: ‘Membership of the BNP is wholly incompatible with public service, and this is especially so for Nurses, Midwives and Health Visitors who have a unique role in caring for vulnerable people on a daily basis.’

It calls for the government to raise the issue with government and the four Departments of Health to establish legal powers to prevent BNP members and members of other racist groups from employment in nursing roles.

They should ensure that standards within the Improving Working Lives initiative are tightened to take account of the importance of diversity, the motion says.

If the motion succeeds, the union will also press the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) to support its call for legislation on this issue and issue interim advice to registered nurses of the standards expected of them.

Has there ever been a case of nurses discriminating against those in their care?

Do ethnic nurses discriminate? About time someone did a study, and anyone feeling discriminated by an ethnic nurse should report it.

I have watched ethnic cleaners perform acts that demonstrate that they have no concept of hygiene whatsoever.

For these morons to wash dirty mops in a lavatory is not unusual - many of them had not even seen a lavatory before they arrived in th UK

All hospital workers and cleaners should be subject to regular blood and stool analysis - AS IN OTHER EU COUNTRIES! regardless of party membership.

RESPECT OUR PATIENTS

I have a feeling that this conference item will be pulled quietly, lest attention is drawn to the poor hygeine of these ancillary workers

Skills shortage? - yes - amongst the immigrants!

I would'nt let those arse-drilling cunts take the skin off a dead warthog.

All nurses, especially immigrants posing as medica of any kind should be clinically tested for diseases, infectious or otherwise, and those found infected should all be deported along with the uninfected foreign cunts.

This is more important than just an excuse to swear at ethnics.

Unwittingly, the left have raised the issue of people bringing their politics into the way they do their work.

Usually, it is the lefties that do this: teachers promoting bogus history for example.

What about the doctor who turned his back on my aunt...who was constantly denied an appointment with an NHS heart specialist...when she asked whether she could go private.

No, she was not a rich bitch. She sold her modest terraced house to pay for a heart bypass and lived for many years afterwards.

But that did not stop the well paid doctor dismissing her with contempt. His politics meant more to him than the survival of his patient.

ALL those who bring their politics to their work should be fired...not for holding certain opinions...but for failing to do the job properly.

This merely shows what great desperation there is on the left about the forthcoming rise in nationalist racially aware feeling. The socialists only now maintain the power they have through the torrent ofd third world guttersnipes they have recruited to their cause in the past few years.
