I don’t think she can act or try to hoover anything up. As she said she didn’t respond to phone calls or messages as they were at 9pm at night . But in briefings said she worked near to midnight. So she was avoiding the Dr or she was maybe getting paid over time for work she wasn’t doing.

I doubt she was paid overtime.

On Friday lunchtime and he admits that he resigned on Monday and presents long waffle letter referring back to Monday. 

In his latest blathering Alfie seems to say that he asked Ashford to stay on while Alfie sorted out a replacement.

...and presumably had someone write a nice farewell  speech?

She doesn't need to. She knows she is on the way out but still employed, so she just has to sit it out while a settlement is arranged. If she were employed by anyone other than the Govt, we would probably say that is the way to handle the matter???

To be fair, even if she has brought this on herself, it will be quite a stressful time for her and other CS and Hospital staff who are wondering about their own position? Time for 'words in ears' and hopefully, resignations to avoid more legalities?

How do we know. We would probably think a lot of things wouldn’t of happened, but they have. 
One  Dr had concerns about our health  and was treated disgusting and disrespectfully . So do you think those people who didn’t want to hear the woman’s concerns, care about the public? 
to be honest we were free from covid in the community for seven months in 2020. But look how it still effected our health care. Where it stopped people getting treatment and still is.  They can’t still keep blaming covid if they got it right.

I would say there is definitely more too it than just a couple of people. Howard Quayle seems to be out of sight and mind, and we might as well own the Sefton the amount of public money it’s had over the years.

Bo hoo I’m really the victim says delusional man child. He seems more than happy to have seen Ranson and Glover trolled on social media though.

So the easiest way to relieve that condemnation would be to also resign his seat? I suspect that is not his intention. He has a mandate as an MHK from N Douglas, not as a minister, so he can probably hang on in there ?

Standing down as a minister is a big deal for a politician with ambitions. No doubt, from the backbenches he will be naming names from his former Dept who should also fall?

Because she is salaried, probably?

Have you read some of those 109 comments? So many of them saying how honest he is. It's just so depressingly bizarre.

I had a quick scan but it made me ill. That’s the thing about the pandemic though isn’t it? Making the most unlikely hero’s out of mundane people who developed the psychotic belief that they were born to lead in a time of crisis.

Mainly the Brides of Dracula, it would appear.  Same people on every FB post on the matter.
