But what about Tory NHS workers?

/annoyed at something intended to bring the country together instead being used to divide people through politics...

Each time I see a member of the government stood outside their house clapping away it makes me ridiculously angry.
Oh mate give it a rest.
Thought this was a nice forum, clearly not.

Some of us aren't allowed outside our front doors for twelve weeks, remember.
Am I to understand that you *haven't* yet assembled your mandatory Applause Turret, Nick?

The whole thing is the absolute definition of crass.

"Wild NHS applause".... 😄


It's the Daily Star (also reported on the BBC), but feels like a load of bollocks.

The clapping may be ridiculous but the VE Day street parties are a whole other level of stupidity!

BBC News also successfully orchestrated a mass gathering of around 50 people to recreate a street party photo from 1945.

Being careful to maintain their magic 2m social distance, of course... except when they had to brush past each other to get into position.

Totally unnecessary and a confusing message to send out. I despair.

The attempt to bring this back hasn't exactly gone to plan.

10 months on the most offensive thing about all this remains that Ms Plas claimed to have had the "spontaneous" idea for the clapping, despite the fact it had been happening throughout Europe and New York City for weeks beforehand.

Standing out on your doorstep for five minutes at eight o'clock in the evening in May or June is one thing. Standing out there in the middle of January when it's minus four is quite another. No thanks; I won't be bothering.
