Sky News Breakfast: Tens of thousands of nurses on strike



On Sky News Breakfast with Niall Patterson:

– Tens of thousands of nurses are going on strike today for their first mass walkout in a century across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

– Nurses will continue to strike in January if the government does not negotiate with them on pay, union leader Pat Cullen has told Sky News.

– The union wants a 19% pay rise – equivalent to inflation plus 5% – while the offer on the table is closer to 5%.

  1. Were is the 350 million a week gone that Boris Johnson said will go to NHS when we did brexit,???,,just a sack full of tory lies ,, thats 16.8 billion a year so were is the money

  2. We all need to invest in crypto currency,it's life changing!am so happy rn
    I just confirmed the sum of $28200 with just $5000,I can't believe my eyes…Mrs Mary Nicholls is what I can offer ya'all…

  3. 12 years of Tory government, 12 years of shameful mismanagement, causing the Tory party to disintegrate. Those that still support them can be described as ………………… ?

    The Tories wanted us to clap for the nurses during the pandemic. Now it may be likely many of those nurses will contract 'the clap' pursuing a well paid second job, to make ends meet !

  4. Wish I had their holidays and sick pay. Not had a pay rise for 5 years and can’t join a union. Bloody whingers, get back to work.

  5. souled out corporate presstitutes continue to run cover for uk gov dot con doing the 6UILD 6ACK 6ETTER

  6. The government can pay hotel owners in excess of 1 million pounds to house illegal immigrants YET the health sectary and the govenment for the uk will not compromise on nhs nurses Who 2 years ago praised them and clap for carers outside your own homes thru the covid pandemic. SHAMEFULL AND EMBARRASING. Great brition is not so Great anymore!!!!

  7. Government officials spend crazy money on snitching and snoops but have nothing for real people doing real jobs

  8. The winter strikes involving rail , nurses , ambulances ,postal , border force , Petrol Stations and others.
    Why is Ukraine so important compared to UK. ?
    Suggest that the whole group of the UK government migrate to UKRAINE. Billions and Billions and Billions of money is just given FREE. Millions of dollars is used to let those illegal immigrants to eat and stay in Hotel comfortably. Our 100% true UK citizens is less unfortunate had suffer hunger and sleep in the streets without a roof.
    The PM and the rest of his Cabinet prefer to give Tax payer Money to Ukraine than make pay adjustment.

  9. The PM Sunak, Jeremy Hunt and the rest of the government must work for FREE for at least 6 months.

  10. If the UK stopped paying the free loading immigrants the country would flourish. But the PC and woke BS has destroyed the country

  11. This is terrible, the government must ensure nurses are financially satisfied so they can continue to care for UK sick people. Our nurses have been excellent before and during Covid 19 and still continue to do excellent work.

  12. The nurses will leave to private health or go abroad to work, unless the Tories get a shift on.

  13. Imagine throwing away millions to house illegals in hotels, and millions to extend the Ukraine war, but ignoring essential uk worker claims to a fair salary? Oh wait…

  14. And yet they find billions ££££££'s to send to the Ukraine in a US started war!

  15. The tories take every opportunity to SLANDER AND SMEAR DECENT HARD WORKING PEOPLE WHO WANT TO EARN A DECENT LIVING!!!!
    UNLIKE THE TORY TAX AVOIDING FAT CATS!!!
    MEAN WHILE TORIES HARD OUT TAX PAYERS MONEY TO AVANTI TO THE TUNE OF £6.5 MILLION IN BONUSES!!
    DISGUSTING AND DISGRACEFUL CORRUPT BEHAVIOUR!!!

  16. If nurses didn't act now, the the government would spit at their faces at the mention of pay rise. After COVID where so many risked their own lives to care for the vulnerable and the ill, the government decided a 1% pay rise would be enough. This is the reality. They have been sucking the NHS dry and now its time for a change.
