Doctors can't get a job

Every British medical graduate should be guaranteed a training place in hospital after thousands were squeezed out by overseas applicants this year, a damning inquiry into the junior doctors fiasco has said.

The report into the Government's botched handling of doctors' training found a series of blunders meant 33,000 junior medics were chasing just 22,000 training posts earlier this year.

Report author Professor Sir John Tooke said the problem occurred because ministers had failed to anticipate that more than 10,000 doctors would apply from overseas, thus 'flooding' the market.

Ministers have now promised to consider his recommendation that British medical graduates should be guaranteed their first year of training, with overseas doctors only able to apply later on.

I thought immigrants were only doing the jobs that British people don’t want to do? Surely this story busts this myth as being a bare faced lie?

This country has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds per doctor training them and now it has been shown to be a total waste of money as we are taking foreign doctors which are probably needed in their own country far more than they are here after all we do have an over supply while less developed countries need far more doctors than they have.

If we can’t get rid of the immigrant doctors maybe we can get rid of the Muslim medical students who refuse to learn about sexual diseases, alcohol or women.

The White house has been pushing...
"The (illegal) Mexicans only do the jobs that Americans won't do"... for decades, I heard it here in the jolly old UK for the first time last year, if memory serves.

I reckon Blair was getting lessons from Bush every time he crossed the pond.

Whoops ...

I meant I heard it said here about immigrants, not Mexicans particularly although I bet we've got our fair share of them too, although it's much easier for them to cross the desert on foot than the pond !!

I wouldn't be surprised. Blair is a poodle and he sold us out and every chance he got.
