Clapping for the NHS!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!

At 8 o-clock last night the nation clapped for the NHS!

Our oldest son (a nurse) is presently down with covid-19 after treating people with the corona virus.

We live in a sleepy village and could not imagine many people actually doing it. The English have this in-built reserve. They get embarrassed easy. They are not very demonstrative.

So we headed to our front door for the moment. We clapped.

Every door was open. Every neighbour was out. All over the village you could hear everyone clapping and shouting.

I had tears in my eyes.

This one was for you NHS!! It shows how important you are to us!! It shows how much we care for you all!! To all those putting their lives at risk to care for us!!!



(Get well soon Dylan!)

  1. These dedicated people have continued to serve, to give the very best of themselves to the care, treatment, and general welfare of us all with steadfast devotion and utmost sincerity. I have such gratitude for them all. Indeed, thank you, thank you, thank you! National heroes greatly deserving of our respect, regard, and total admiration. As said before on your blog Opher, these wholesome people deserve full recognition and reward from our government for their sterling work. They are an inspiration to us all.

    Get well soon Dylan!

    Have a great day day.


  2. Lest we not also forget the U.K Tory government’s true nature, news and perspective appearing on Skwawkbox clearly demonstrates their callous disregard for public services and front line workers.

    Other recent articles make for somber reading.

    I also read that Boris Johnson has been diagnosed with COVID-19…the suggestion being that he will still lead the government’s response to the epidemic. Make of that as you will…


    1. Yes – a callous disregard for all public servants who have paid the price for the folly of profiteers – those same profiteers who made a fortune out of Brexit and are probably cashing in on covid too!
      Be a shame if we had to waste a ventilator on him.
