Coronavirus: let’s spare a thought for the dead

Last Updated: April 7, 2020By Tags: , , , , , , , ,

What a wonderful outpouring of emotion over Boris Johnson’s hospitalisation – both ways.

But I think the fuss over the prime minister is drowning out a more important fact:

Hundreds more people died because of the coronavirus yesterday, including more health workers who contracted the disease.

Have you stopped to remember these people:

I’m sure there are many others but I can only publicise those I see.

I would like to publicise as many as I can – to commemorate the real heroes of the crisis. So if you see a press notification, please let me know, and I’ll try to publish more tomorrow.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    The amount of deaths from Tory Welfare Reforms would fill a football stadium.

    Agree the focus must be on the all women and men who have needlessly died as a direct result of dictator boris and his fascist tory cronies deliberate refusal to provide them all with protective clothing and testing! These tory boys are all criminals and should be prosecuted for inflicting state instigated murder on medical staff and social care workers.

    Spare a thought when claiming ‘poor boris he’s suffering with the virus’ – for the relatives of these women and men, many of whom are distraught with grief! Remember too many of these women have children so I wonder if the fascist tories will permit them to claim any state financial aid? I doubt it – why waste public money on those children because their mother/father should have taken the necessary steps before dying!
