Lawyer and filmmaker Peter Stefanovic dragged himself out of bed, suffering with Covid, to make a new video. The anger of the interview he witnessed pushed him back in front of the camera.
It comes as the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) announced on Friday its members will strike for 48 hours from 8pm on 30 April after rejecting the government’s pay offer.
On Sunday Tory chair Greg Hands lived up to his name as he accidentally showed off notes scrawled on his palm in an interview.
Writing was clearly visible as the Cabinet minister gestured during an appearance on the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg on Sunday programme.
Hands told Laura on numerous occasions that nurses are getting a good deal, but this isn’t the way Peter and nurses see it.
Peter shared the video and wrote: “I was so angry I had to rise from my sick bed for this one. How the Conservative party chairman got away with telling viewers over & over the offer to nurses was a great deal without it be pointed out it’s actually just a crappy real terms pay cut was absolutely shocking.”
He also tweeted: “Absolutely shocking that in a single interview the Conservative party chairman was able to tell viewers on more than 10 occasions the Governments offer to nurses was a great deal without it being pointed out to viewers it’s just another crappy real terms pay cut.”
