Noreena Hertz & Parting Footballers With Their Money
Noreena Hertz has spent the last 2-3 months touring football clubs trying to get as many players as possible to give a day's pay to maydayfornurses.com. Needless to say, West
Ham's entire squad coughed up - the only one I think to do so man for man. Needless to say the tightfisted gits at Wigan refused to contribute, bar one solitary member of their first team. Anyway, she's raised £750,000. Rumour has it that the party leaders are making time to see her personally about this.
There's an Early Day Motion (1422) which about 85 MPs have signed congratulating the Mayday For Nurses campaign on their efforts. Noreena Hertz has made a documentary for Channel 4 to be broadcast on 7 June about her tours round the football grounds of Britain.
