NHS Pen-Pushers Snatch George Michael Tickets

Well, according to the Mirror, a large number of the tickets for his Plymouth gig were hijacked by the Trust’s admin staff.

“Admin snatched hundreds”, says a livid nurse. And she’s not the only one… But she is the only one quoted in the paper.

However, in true bureaucratic fashion, the Trusts replied to the criticism, saying that the pop superstar had requested that the tickets “go to all staff”.

So did the parking attendants, cafeteria staff, flower sellers and cleaners also get to go? One imagines not.
