A debilitating strike swept the public sector yesterday causing mild annoyance and under the breath insults. The hospitals, the schools and some other self important institutions would descend into anarchy and fall to ruin. Without staff to man the gun emplacements at Hull Royal Infirmary it was feared roving gangs of feral looters would raid the pharmacy.
Back and to the Left news interviewed some of the brave scabs that crossed the picket line and kept the wheels of medicine turning.
We found a young man, browbeaten and tired. He asked for a glass of water before we started, but his eyes pleaded for something stronger. We (as respected journalists) understood and poured him a strong whiskey from our stash. He knocked it back without a second look and relaxed.
Shaun: We thought it was going to be hell, but it was dead easy in the end. That's how a hospital should be run.
BATTL: What? Who? What?
Shaun: Yeah man it was a fucking snip. All the nursing staff panicked and got all the prescriptions they needed down to us in the morning giving us the time we required to get everything done. I even got to go home early! And for once I'm not going to feel the need to take ten sleeping tablets before I go to sleep tonight!
So there we have it true testament to the staff of the NHS. Even when half of them have fucked off, the system still works.
