25 years a nurse in the NHS

For some strange reason, Anne Milton's pamphlets have stopped arriving at my door. My neighbours all get them, but I don't. I can't imagine why.

Still, my neighbours are kind enough to share, and Anne publishes many of her pamphlets online (if not the ones mentioned on Newsnight that only reach certain areas where more challenging views on immigration are welcome) and one thing keeps returning as a (if not the) major reason why we should vote for Anne Milton:

"25 years a nurse in the NHS"

This same phrase appears verbatim in every bit of literature.

Now Anne herself has said: "I've spent a lot of my working life dealing with housing issues" - but you shouldn’t let this throw you off. For some time, Anne was working part-time as a nurse and two days a week with a housing association. And then she was a councillor for a bit. But she was still "25 years a nurse in the NHS" as far as we know, and no-one can take that away from her.


Those who are familiar with Anne know that she never, *ever* passes up a chance to big-note herself. So why no mention of being a Senior Nurse or Matron? Could it be that the strapline may just as well read; "25 years a private in the British Army"?

(Important: Nurses and soldiers do good and important work. As a long-time viewer of M*A*S*H, I know this to be true.)


I was left rather lost for words when I heard Anne's answer to abortion last night:

"Don't have sex!"

I'd expect that kind of comment from a Conservative, but not a nurse.

Not sure that she practices what she preaches, especially with that story on this site about flatmate Janet and two blokes....

Now, now... less of that, please. The last thing we want to do is to disturb people by making them think about Anne Milton having sex.

How about "Anne Milton - Nurse, Mother, Dipstick, Estate Agent" ? Apparently an oil-rich Russian was being driven last week round the leafier parts of Guildford while house-hunting, and instructed his underlings to "Buy house through that Milton estate agent - she has more for sale than anyone else."
