This is an example of the very worst of Britain.  What prehistoric, myopic, downright stupid bunch of idiots managed to come up with a decision like this?  Amidst this country’s many wonderful attributes one of our worst is this inability to move forward, to catch up with the times.  I’m afraid that the members of the panel responsible for this ruling have made real fools of themselves.

It is 100% clear that Ms Haywood’s actions were in the interests of patients and this must override any other consideration.  Any set of rules or procedures that doesn’t allow for this fundamental priority needs to be changed.  Surely a High Court action (the Royal College of Nursing should fund it) will sweep away this ruling and reinstate Ms Haywood with compensation and an unreserved public apology.
