Star date: 9th August 2018

MAXINE PEAKE, SALFORD FOUNDATION AND THE NHS ADVERT

Maxine Peake has hit back at the Mail On Sunday after an article in which Tory MP Simon Hart accused her of hypocrisy after being paid to voice an NHS recruitment advert.

Maxine donated her fee to the Salford Foundation Trust, of which she is a patron, and a statement issued by her sarcastically thanks the Mail on Sunday "for allowing me to highlight the wonderful and tireless work of the Salford Foundation Trust"...

Last weekend the Mail On Sunday, or 'Malice On Sunday', ran an article in which Tory MP Simon Hart accused Maxine Peake of hypocrisy after voicing an NHS recruitment advert...

Hart claimed she has been paid taxpayers' money for the job, adding "I'd have more respect for Maxine if she had forgone the fee and left it with the health service to recruit another nurse."

In a statement issued on Twitter, Maxine hit back... "To clarify, I was not employed by the NHS, but by an advertising agency who hold a pre-agreed budget of the whole of the campaign. If I had refused the fee, the money wouldn't have been returned to the NHS but to the commercial agency.

"I decided to donate my fee to the Salford Foundation Trust, of which I am a patron, who support children and young people in my area" she added "I chose to support the Trust as I believe strongly in the life-enhancing and life changing work they do..."

Maxine ends the statement with a sarcastic refrain to the Mail... "Thank you to the Mail on Sunday for allowing me to highlight the wonderful and tireless work of the Salford Foundation Trust..."

 

Residents can see Maxine doing more good work when she appears at the annual Peterloo Massacre commemoration on Sunday 19th August – for full details see previous Salford Star article – click here

How can she be doing good work by appearing at the commemoration? what can she say to help those who are long dead? Why does she not speak up for the people who suffer injustice in Salford at the hands of her Socialist friends?

Retired Socialist should be ashamed of such a remark. The point of the article was to point out Maxine's genuine support for the NHS and the nasty attack, without foundation, made by Simon Hart. Your remark on Maxine's appearance is patronising and irrelevant. This sadly is a very traditional sexist approach of some men. Do you make similar comments about the appearance of men?
