Extracts from the Telegraph:
"A Conservative peer has delivered a devastating attack on nurses who looked after him during a stay in hospital describing them as "grubby, drunken and promiscuous"."
"He told peers: "The nurses that looked after me were mostly grubby. We're talking about dirty fingernails, slipshod, lazy.
"It's a miracle I'm still alive. But worst of all my Lords they were drunken and promiscuous.
"How do I know that? Because if you're a patient and you're lying in a bed, and you're being nursed from either side, they talk across you as if you're not there.
"So I know exactly what they got up to the night before, and how much they drank, and I know exactly what they were planning to do the next night, and I can tell you, it's pretty horrifying.""
