Junior Doctors Strike: The Iconic Ideological Struggle Of Our Time

I feel that Jeremy Hunt’s decision to unilaterally impose new contracts has turned the Junior Doctors strike into the iconic ideological struggle of our time. The Tories clearly think they can win this and have decided to go for it. They must believe public opinion will eventually turn against the Doctors. With the backing of the Tabloids It was easy for the Tories to go after the sick and disabled, they were the low hanging fruit, but if they can defeat the middle class, highly educated, & articulate YDs they will be confident, probably correctly, that they are are free to go after whoever they want. ‪#‎generalstrike‬ ‪#‎minersstrike‬ ‪#‎JuniorDoctorsStrike‬
