New mental health workers and the centenary of Passchendaele

Today the BBC has announced a Government recruitment drive for more mental health nurses.(1) Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt appears to be acting like Kitchener, the man in the pointing finger 'Your Country Needs You' recruitment poster pin-up for World War 1. Hunt is also the Health Secretary who previously stated that the British should work more like the Chinese workforce.(2) In China they have a word 'guolaosi' referring to those worked to death in the production of consumer goods, as pointed out in my referenced comment on a previous Kate Belgrave blog post.

Today we are also at the centenary of the start of the WW1 battle of Passchendaele.(3) You may also wish to refer to my previous Kwug Blog posting [Department for Work & Pensions] making poor people mentally ill at great cost to the NHS as we approach centenary of a WW1 blood bath(4), and my comment on Kate Belgrave's blog post Student debt dominates debate — but where's the political sympathy for people crushed by council tax debt, DWP loans, rent arrears and sanctions debt?(5)
