In defence of nurses.

Reading this article where Lord Mancroft said: "The nurses who looked after me were mostly grubby - we are talking about dirty fingernails and hair - and were slipshod and lazy. Worst of all, they were drunken and promiscuous."

He clearly needs his head examined. OK, Ok, it is true that standards have slipped all over the UK and nurses are no exception. I can accept they are grubby with habits common to many in modern britain. However I see a lot of that being due to the state of the nation caused by useless politicians like Mancroft himself. It was OK whilst it was the general public being treated this way but to have one of our glorious leaders in, god forbid, the wrong hospital and not being treated correctly it is suddenly a big scandal. It's about time someone raised the profile.

But I must protest about the worst was being drunken and promiscuous. Even when the health service was working normally and actually healing people our nurses have always had the reputation of being drunken and promiscuous. Why do you think the sight of a uniform turns so many men on? It's our nurses leading the way in being hot and available.

I actually went out with a nurse in the early 80's and very nice she was too. She was certainly not grubby nor were her colleagues. However every time I visited their sleeping accommodations there were always one or two others being sneaked in as well. It never impacted on their work and they actually healed people at less cost than now.

So Lord Mancroft. Please complain about the important things for a hospital such as cleanliness but leave our hot nurses alone. It's tradition.

Naughty boy, Bag - with a nurse in uniform too. You don't have any to spare do you?

Uber - I hope you haven't done nurses either - I thought you were straight. :)

Uber, isn't everyone in the UK a patient? I assume youmean a patient you are treating. What about after they are cured?

James, That was a long time ago. It seems the proximity to death and suffering makes them appreciate the finer things in life. If I come across a spare onmy travels I'll keep you in mind.
