TUC’S deputy general secretary Paul Nowak was grilled by Richard Madeley on Monday’s instalment of Good Morning Britain about proposed rail strikes across the nation later this week. The journalist asked Paul to address, previous guest, professor Robert Thomas’ comments about how patients will be affected by the strikes. Richard stressed the professor warned “this action will directly lead to people dying earlier than they would have done otherwise”.
Paul was interviewed by Richard and his co-host Ranvir Singh after the professor warned them about how the strikes could “lead to loss of lives” if patients cannot access hospitals.
Richard told Paul: “We have to stick to this point, you are having strike action this week and we have a professor, who is presumably speaking for his profession, who is saying this action will directly lead to people dying earlier than they would have done otherwise.
“And that is the point, I am not trying to interrupt you, I just want you to answer that specific point and not broaden it to the problems of the NHS.”
