Video: med student explains why Johnson booed out of Addenbrooke’s – and claims ‘I was pushed away’ from him

“People who work in this hospital know the reality of cuts”

Boris Johnson’s general election campaign misfired spectacularly today, when he was dramatically booed out of Addenbrooke’s hospital after a PR stunt (video here).

A young medical student has bravely spoken out about why Johnson was booed – and claims she was ‘pushed away’ from him when she tried to ask him a question:

Her diagnosis was damning – staff at the hospital know the reality of cuts and Johnson’s refusal to even take questions from staff exposed the visit for what it was: a cynical PR stunt that staff weren’t even told about in advance.

A cynical PR stunt that backfired dramatically on the dishonest and cowardly Johnson – and is going viral in spite of the silence of complicit ‘mainstream’ media.

Never – ever – trust a Tory with the NHS.

    • Cambridge News a local newspaper.

      They are aware supporting the Tories or its LibDem wing is very very out of fashion in Cambridge. It is not Oxford. 😉

  1. Terriffic young woman! I don’t suppose she’d consider standing for, say, Barking?

  2. She looks a bit like Rachel Riley, but with personality, honesty and less makeup…

  3. ♦A must read and a very informative perspective.♦

    I couldn’t let Boris Johnson’s visit to my hospital go unchallenged

    As a medical student I’ve seen up close the impact of the NHS underfunding, and how heartbreaking it is for patients

    As I stood by and watched Boris Johnson’s carefully orchestrated procession out of the Addenbrooke’s treatment centre in Cambridge last week, I was angered by his cowardice and his clear desire not to be questioned. My final medical exams are fast approaching, and I left the clinic pondering some of the complex conditions I’d just seen. Going up to the prime minister and speaking my mind about the state of the government was not part of my revision plan.
