He expressed this in salty terms:-
Specifically, he wished that Julie Bailey would suffer a life-threatening illness. It didn't appear to strike him as at all inconsistent with being a paramedic or that it might reflect poorly on the people around him. His main purpose was to show that they are in fact wonderful people.
According to the Telegraph, Julie Bailey has informed the police on the grounds that:
“I believe that this man is an ambulance controller. I am concerned about what would happen if I was to have an accident and I was to phone the ambulance service and he was there in the control room.”Whether this is a police or a professional standards matter is not clear at the moment. Mr Guest seems to have fallen out spectacularly with his father after the death of his father's wife (who may or may not be his mother) and his father had joined Ms Bailey's protest group, Cure the NHS. There is an element of family business here and Julie Bailey has been caught in the crossfire.
However, Guest has established one thing clearly: some front-line staff despise the patients. They wish them dead, seeing the maintenance of the NHS as the point of the job rather than the alleviation of human suffering. They hold opinions which make one very much doubt their willingness to do the job without having their arses licked, such is their fury at criticism.
At this point somebody usually jumps up and says "But it's only him, not fair to judge etc". But he's not the only one. He is like the pox blister which shows the corruption running through the blood. Bailey has had a five year fight and been repeatedly rubbished. Even now, when an inquiry and report has shown she was right to complain, the arse-covering Powers That Be are busy trying to make her seem like the unreasonable one for insisting that they must remove the corporate mask and hold accountable the individuals who failed.
But Murph Guest has accidentally blown the gaff by sneaking out from under the control of smooth PR operators. What he and the Powers That Be really believe is that old, dying people are bloody nuisances but for whom hospitals would be clean, target-hitting places.
So let's hear it for freedom of expression. This is why you have to have a free press and free speech - otherwise you don't find out what they really think.
