In response to Kathy Gyngell: Roots of doctors’ strike lie in feminisation of the profession, Polly Radical wrote:
When was the last time we heard of unionised car workers striking?
That’s because the UK State, with all its corruption and incompetence, has finally left the car industry alone.
The shareholder-driven suppliers are now free to work with the unions to increase efficiency, workers’ pay and product quality. The consumers vote with their choices, which is why you rarely see a (state-owned) Renault these days, except in (state-controlled) France.
That’s what these NHS careerists don’t understand. The NHS is the British Leyland of healthcare.
