NHS nurse clashes with Tory minister in heated Question Time debate: ‘You talk absolute rubbish’

An NHS nurse clashed with a Tory minister during a heated Question Time debate on Thursday (6 June) as she told him “You talk absolute rubbish”.

The nurse, who had worked in the NHS for 37 years, addressed Mark Harper, telling him social care had been “decimated”.

She said: “Patients are dying in corridors. If you sorted out social care and put your money where your mouth is, then all these issues would be sorted.

“You are talking absolute rubbish because you are trying to decimate the NHS and we all know that. You don’t want it and you never have wanted it.”

“Are you going to let me come back on it?”, Mr Harper asked.
