The Tories are insulting our vital NHS staff with a ‘pay rise’ that will actually result in a real-terms pay cut for many, as the 6.5% ‘rise’ over three years offered to most – in return for sacrificing a day’s holiday to devalue it further – is below the expected rise in prices of around 10%.
A real-terms pay-cut on top of the 14% imposed by the 1% pay cap since the Tories took Downing Street.
Tories being Tories, they are desperately spinning it to sound like they are suddenly being generous – which the facts say they are not – and have put out a video claiming this generosity is thanks to their great handling of the economy.
An economy that has been the slowest of all major economies to recover from the global financial crisis.
Fortunately, the team at Ealing Labour for Corbyn (@EL4JC on Twitter) have fixed it for them:
There you go, Jimmy. Don’t forget to credit EL4C when you share it.
Everyone else – support your NHS heroes and don’t fall for Tory propaganda.
