This has been sitting around in my Dock for a couple of weeks now, but it was so egregious that it has survived the winnowing process that I do from time to time. A little while ago, we examined the extraordinary financial arrangements of Rose Gibb, the Kent hospital manager who presided over the deaths of 90 people from Clostridium difficile and received a £75,000 pay off.
Seventy five fucking grand? For presiding over the deaths of ninety people? Who the hell is negotiating these fucking contracts?
Oh, and what happened to that idea of prosecuting company bosses for corporate manslaughter? Is that still around or does it not apply to public sector workers? This silly bitch should be fighting to stay out of prison, not being rewarded with tons of our cash.
Almost unbelievably, it was the very next day on which I saw this story.
C.diff boss fights for more cash
The former chief of the NHS trust at the centre of a superbug scandal in which 90 patients died is to take legal action to increase her severance pay.
Rose Gibb resigned from Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust just before news of the C.diff deaths at the trust's three hospitals was revealed.
The trust decided, after taking legal advice, to pay her six months' salary of £75,000 in a severance deal.
Now her union has said she will reject the payoff and demand more.
In November, health secretary Alan Johnson halted Ms Gibb's severance pay.
But the trust said last week she would get her legal entitlement.
The union, Managers In Partnership (MiP) said its own lawyers had advised that Ms Gibb was entitled to the full sum originally agreed by the trust, which has never been disclosed.
So what is that to be? Well, figures such as £400,000 were being bandied about; as I said before, who the fuck is negotiating these contracts? Since when did we reward people for failure? The state seems to be absolutely incapable to being anything other than a Simple Shopper.
If there were any justice in the world, we would give this stupid fucking woman her £400,000 and then prosecute her for corporate manslaughter, under the laws which NuLabour brought in. Or, we would tell her to shut the fuck up and piss off.
Is rose Gibb one of the most shameless whores on the planet? I think that she may be...
