Why, thank you, thank you for that wonderful round of
applause for all us hard-working NHS workers, you’re much too kind, no really
you are, we don’t really deserve it, after all, we’re just doing our job, but
thank you, again!
3 weeks now and doesn’t it just make you feel all warm and
fuzzy inside and evoke that old Dunkirk spirit, yes because we are a nation, we’re
all pulling together to ‘Save the NHS’
and ‘Save Lives’. Because we’re all
in this together and, ‘We have to do it,
to get through it!’
And all the children with their pretty rainbow pictures up
in windows because you can’t leave the children out, you gotta get them
programmed early too, sorry, I mean you’ve got to include them too. Yes we must
always be inclusive, include them while they’re young! Altogether now - ‘Children!
Children! Future! Future! Children are the future - KIDS!’
And who’s leading the clap this week but none other than
Boris Johnson’s pregnant girlfriend Carrie Symonds – aawww! Because you just know she’ll be delivering
her baby in an NHS hospital and, by the way, does anyone know what hospital
Boris is being treated in, could it possibly be a private one? But still wasn’t it
good of her…aawww!.
There are just so many who care, I mean, we already had
Prince Charles, who never put foot in an NHS hospital for anything other than
to pull the curtain back on a plaque with his name on it. And the Beckham’s
too, who live in the US and again, haven’t seen the inside of an NHS hospital
for decades. After all, the NHS isn’t
for the likes of them, oh no, it’s just for us plebs but isn’t it great to see
they are so concerned about us and caring or could it be that maybe they are just
concerned about something else? Like maybe, if they don’t keep everyone indoors
the NHS will be overwhelmed and people will see how much it has been starved of
funding for the last 20 years. I mean when I drive in every morning, the signs
from the recent strikes are still hanging outside ‘Safe Staffing, Save Lives’.
Short memories, eh? So, maybe their motivation is not really to save lives but
to save their own jobs, their own necks and their own privileged lifestyles? After
all, you don’t want the plebs rising up in a revolution and demanding fair
treatment or decent services for their taxes so let’s keep trotting out the feel
good propaganda and shovelling the shit down the throats of the little people.
So, well done, everyone, it’s so good to see everyone turning
out to support the NHS, but wasn’t there just a small part of you that felt
like one of those sea lions, you used to see on variety shows years ago, who sat
up on their little plinths and clapped to order?
