Now, with the careful manipulation of the system to force nurses to become dergreed graduates
I wonder how many nurses recruited from overseas are university graduates.

FED, not the point. The home grown ones are getting degrees in nursing to qualify as nurses. Those from overseas are already qualified to an acceptable standard

I might add that when I was in Boston Hospital, a centre of Polish and Portuguese immigration, I was treated by 4 staff nurses, 3 English one Indian, 2 English sisters, 4 nursing assistants, 3 English one Polish. Later, in the Chemo suite, all English.

That is the point. So many young British are being discouraged from nursing BECAUSE of the paraphernalia of getting a degree. None of the nurses I knew in my youth had a degree and the nurses who have looked after me in various parts of the world haven't had one either.

Indeed, they were 'caring' types who could administer appropriate treatment

As even the most basic piece of research would have exposed this Labour shill, it is obvious that this article of fake news was a deliberate lie by Sky News.

Fairly sure Hattie Jacques didn't have a degree and she made it to Matron....

Is this serious enough?

Usual apologies for aviation content.

Oh tsk, nowhere near enough to warrant "serious " and will doubtless be resolved, along with a few other outstanding trivial issues, within the remaining months to March .

Of course, being Sky, the outlet may well be blamed for not mentioning the letter was actually drafted by a Labour activist living in a squat in Walthamstow

As usual, the BBC manages to find the time and space to quote one of the EU Idealogues -

https://www.bbc.com/news/business-45581056

But not one of the UK's more successful entrepreneurs -

Maybe the BBC should / could go ask the EU for its license money instead of the UK public ?

There was mention on the Today programme, this morning, of a group of backbench Tories saying Treeza will be removed in April, as the Brexit chaos is breaking out. They also said Boris is not going to make the running as substitute.

May may well think it reasonable to resign in April. "I've seen Brexit through as I promised, now it's time for someone else to take the country forward."
​​​​​​Whoever takes over will have a poisoned chalice.
And I'm still thinking of the unthinkable in the following general election. People will vote for something, anything, different. And there is only the one alternative. Be very afraid.

It's the bit at about 3.54 and thereafter that constitutes one of those unfortunate political utterances that tend to come back and bite the source later.....notably the bit about "the British people can be confident we have....." well quite Treeza, the UK electorate are no doubt brimming with confidence after the efforts made on their behalf over the last couple of years......

Please note the term "UK electorate " applies to those members who live in the real world in contrast to those infatuated JB contributors who are already convinced of her success. .

https://www.channel4.com/news/eu-rej...ks-brexit-plan

And just as all was going to perfection for Treeza, who better to add his support than the epitome of incompetence, presumably this was offered in an attempt to divert attention away from a less than flattering report concerning the UK's railways, Grayling.

Shame Denis Norden has recently passed away, he could have presented an endless new series of "It'll be alright on the night " based entirely on events thus far.

With the clearly demonstrated EU intransigence, surely the answer right now is to say:
"If you (the EU) cannot come up with something better, then it is 'No Deal' with WTO rules. Britain leaves the Northern Irish border open so any 'hard' border will be from the EU's side (with any 'blame' for that being entirely on the EU's side). That huge 'bung' of money that has been going to Brussels every year can be used instead to subsidise any UK businesses/enterprises that are disadvantage by the EU's decision. Tariffs applied in the past by the EU to trade with non-EU countries can now be removed for UK trade with those countries to increase that trade and help compensate for trade with the EU that might be diminished. Tax advantages can be given to companies relocating from the EU to the UK. Other countries wishing to leave the EU can expect favourable trade terms with Britain."

Totally agreee, she has laid her cards on the table and now she needs to walk away.

I don't think the EU needs to come up with anything. The UK plans to leave the club. For some funny reasons, it still wants to use its facilities, so any club would let its former member know if and under what conditions this will be possible, but the former member should not take anything for granted. On the day membership ends, the membership card will be deactivated and a barrier will go up wherever this is necessary to block the former member for using the facilities without paying. Apparently the other club members are all more than relaxed about this prospect, while the soon-to-be ex-club member, for reasons unbeknownst to the rest of the world, appears to be in denial about the obvious and surprised that a toy thrown out of the pram does not automatically bounce back into the pram.

This was choreographed speech to appeal to her own party in the hope they go easy on her at conference in 10 days time.

Nothing more.
