The Foundation says that one in four grants went to a full-time nurse.
  4. just so you know the Tories are getting rid of the student nurse 5k bursary. It was in the November budget. In September 2017, NHS bursaries paid to students will be cut and replaced with loans. this is likely to put off students becoming nurses it's a way of sneakily undermining the NHS a vote for the Tories = a weaker NHS
  5. How much do you think the shops are worth below it?
  6. Trainee nurses don't get the living wage. also anyone can become disabled, you might have a stroke tomorrow. you wont be able to drive. you won't be able to work. you'll need carers to help you adjust until you can reprogram your brain with therapy. your home will need adjusting. all of this will take weeks before the government gets around to giving you any help you'll need disability payments which will take weeks to come through. You'll need to be assessed first and that will take time. if you haven't got any money saved, you may need to go to a food
  7. 1 million people on food banks is just wrong. no system is perfect, you might get a few none claimants abusing the system but so what? I'd rather have a few abusers and the people getting the help they need. there is a lot worse things in the world.

  10. Maybe if the supreme leader May had actually turned up for the debate the Tories in the audience might have clapped for her. But if she doesn't turn up why would they clap?

  16. I'd love an allotment, ive been on the waiting list for over a year now. it's crazy that you can get a council house but not an allotment these days.
