Nurse Suspended for Facebook Posts

An NHS nurse has been suspended and now faces an investigation for posting supposed "laughable" accusations against the cottage hospital where she serves, see: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/facebook-rant-of-biggleswade-hospital-nurse-1154377 . Keep an eye on this story; I bet Biggleswade Hospital will end up closing just as this nurse predicted.

I can sympathize with her quandary; it's different from my own only because they're being more honest with her in their motives, as they were with Tony Farrell, and not making up excuses, see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/ben-emlyn-jones-live-at-ldidg.html . The rights of free speech are being removed from society very slowly and stealthily. The authorities never openly admit that's what they're doing, they just bring in a set of "social networking" rules for the sake of "professional standards". These rules start off as basic and minor, but then are added to bit by bit. The penalties for breaching these rules become more and more severe; people are made examples of and discharged or imprisoned. In the end the authorities can still state that free speech still exists and be literally correct, but it becomes such an effort, with so many pitfalls to tiptoe around, that most people just give up altogether.
