The Daily Mail
“A midwife was yesterday fighting for her career after speaking out when she discovered foster carers had not been told they were looking after a baby who may have been HIV positive”.
And herein lies everything that is wrong with the country.
It is an absolute disgrace that a person can be persecuted, attacked, hounded out of their job, and even jailed for telling the truth.
I know only too well how my friend Sue Marshall and her two colleagues suffered at the hands of NSPCC bosses for doing nothing else other than exposing a dangerous terrorist who worked for the sham charity.
You just know that everything is an arse about face, fuck up when telling the truth is bad.
What the nation needs is a hot steaming mug of wake the fuck up.
We are ruled by a cartel of nonce gangsters who are systematically destroying the country yet people blame the poor.
Our Royal Family are Nazi, Satan worshipping, child molesting ponces yet people will attack you for saying so.
Our Justice system is outdated, corrupt, unequal and presided over by out of touch paedophile judges, yet people are still under the delusion that we have the greatest justice system in the world.
Our police force is run by self serving, wholly corrupt, Freemasons in charge of a huge body of uneducated thug bullies, imposing statute law by force and intimidation at the expense of common law. Yet the nation accepts it as being “just the way things work”.
Our children are being systematically dumbed down to the point of illiteracy, being sexually awaken far to early and being taught that greed is good, yet parents pat themselves on the back and think they have done great work if their kids are not junkies.
Our soldiers are perceived by the masses as being heroes, desperately fighting for our freedom by illegally invading foreign nations and murdering innocent men women and children whilst imposing fear and poverty on the rest. Yet when those innocent people fight back with the limited options open to them they are branded sick, murdering scum.
Our Doctors treat us with medicines which do more harm than good, and inject potentially fatal ‘vaccines’ into our children to appease a multi billion pound industry run by Satanic, evil, psychopaths. Yet people think that you are a bad, selfish parent for not wanting to kill or damage your child.
Racism is rife and on the rise, within pig ignorant morons, convinced that their light skin tone somehow makes them superior to those of a darker skin, all thanks to media and government manipulation. Yet they haven’t got the basic intellect to see that we are all equal human beings… We are one. We are all the same.
Rich, pampered, egotistical, pig ignorant Celebrities who despise their fans and have more money than sense are worshipped and forgiven the vilest of crimes by sycophantic retards who couldn’t give a fuck that children are going hungry in this country, let alone any other.
Loyalty, trustworthiness, consideration for others, and basic good manners are one non-existent, yet brain dead thugs will stab you to death for ‘disrespecting’ them.
And, the keeping up with the Jones’ brigade will queue for hours on end leading up to midnight to get their greedy little paws on the latest, meaningless, pointless, moronic gadget or game, while having absolutely no idea that they are being poisoned by the water supply, the food they eat and the very air that they breathe.
Fuck me, you people scare the shit out of me.
Midwife who blew the whistle on foster carers being given HIV positive baby without warning is left fighting for her career
- Tricia McDaid said foster parents had no idea they were at risk of infection
- Midwife said human rights of the mother who wanted to hide her HIV positive status were considered more important than protecting foster families
- She spoke out to the Daily Mail in the hope something might be done
- But she was ‘verbally and physically assaulted at work after speaking out’
- Mrs McDaid, who has 20 years’ experience, was later struck off

A midwife was yesterday fighting for her career after speaking out when she discovered foster carers had not been told they were looking after a baby who may have been HIV positive.
Tricia McDaid, 52, blew the whistle over concerns for the safety of the baby as well as the foster parents and their three young children, who had no idea they were exposed to risk of infection.
She had complained to her superiors and sent letters to the head of midwifery at her hospital trust and the Department of Health, claiming it was unacceptable that the human rights of the mother, who had HIV and wanted to hide her status, were considered more important than protecting foster families.
But after four months of inaction she finally decided to warn the public by speaking to the Daily Mail, in the hope that something might finally be done.
Afterwards, Mrs McDaid, a midwife with 20 years’ experience who is originally from Strabane, Northern Ireland, claims she was verbally and physically assaulted at work, subjected to racist abuse and became so stressed she ended up having a stroke – before she was suspended, hauled through the courts and struck off as a midwife last year.
After going to the High Court, which ruled her case must be reheard, Mrs McDaid yesterday appeared at a misconduct hearing, which will rule if she will be struck off for good.
She described the charges against her as ‘ridiculous’ and claimed they had been brought because she dared to speak out about her concerns.
She said withholding the HIV status from the foster parents was ‘completely unethical,’ adding: ‘I call a spade a spade. The truth hurts some people. It [speaking out] was warranted. People do need to be told the truth.’
In November 2008, the mother with HIV from Newham, East London, gave birth to a young boy, who had to be treated with anti-retroviral drugs in case he also was carrying the disease.
During his birth, doctors, nurses and midwives wore masks, goggles, double sets of gloves, boots and protective clothing to cut the risk of infection.
When he was a few days old he was put into care but the foster parents, who had three children of her own under the age of five, were not told he could have HIV.
Although babies who are born to HIV positive mothers may also be infected, it is not possible to know for sure until they are 18 months old.
The drugs they had to administer were reportedly ‘disguised’ in Coca Cola bottles.
When Mrs McDaid, who was working as a community midwife in Newham, became involved with the case she was told if the foster carers asked her what the drugs were she should lie.
She was informed that Newham Council were protecting the mother using Article Eight of the European Convention on Human Rights – the right to respect for one’s private and family life.
Mrs McDaid complained to her superiors, saying the child’s life was being put at risk.
She also wrote to a series of senior doctors and politicians about concerns for the safety of the foster parents. When apparently nothing was done, she went public.
Yesterday, Mrs McDaid was accused of failing to raise her concerns ‘in an appropriate manner’ by speaking to the Mail.
She was also accused of acting ‘in an aggressive manner’, shouting at the mother and social workers, as well as a ‘series’ of other charges, including making inappropriate comments about a baby’s race, forging correspondence, breaching patient confidentiality and speaking in a ‘verbally aggressive manner’.
In one letter sent to two senior trust employees, she stated: ‘You will be exposed as the repugnant, amoral, dishonest characters that you are.’ Mrs McDaid claims these other charges have been ‘fabricated’ as a means of getting rid of her following her whistleblowing.
Yesterday, she told a nursing and midwifery misconduct panel: ‘Yes I whistleblew. I waited until February 2009 because they still hadn’t protected this baby from being harmed.
‘I took four months to go to the press and made my comments in a perfectly appropriate manner.
‘What’s an aggressive manner? Telling someone they are incompetent is not easy. I call a spade a spade. I call a liar a liar.
‘The truth hurts some people. It was warranted. People do need to be told the truth.’ Representing herself, she added that she had sought permission from the Department of Health before going public and said the charges against her were ‘total nonsense’, had ruined the past five years of her life and had cost millions of pounds in public funds.
Michael Collis, for the NMC, conceded that Mrs McDaid had ‘legitimate concerns’ about the fostering case.
But he added that she had ‘acted in an entirely inappropriate and unprofessional manner in the way in which she raised her concern by speaking to the media in detail.’
The hearing continues.
