The couple that seized control of the running of the clapping for carers effort in my area, mainly as an excuse to get out the kareoke machine and belt out uplifting pop songs to the neighborhood are now back to throwing actual karaoke parties.

I'm pretty sure the only part of the Sport that makes any money is the wankline ads and adverts for 'massage parlours' in the back few pages.
Basically it's a directory for brothels, as frequented by truck drivers and tradesmen, with a few pages of jokes at the beginning, dressed up as a newspaper to get past the censors.
Fairly sure they repeat the same stories over and over, which must save money too. It's not like they need to employ journalists to do investigations.

Sounds like anti-social behaviour, get them reported.

On Sunday 5 July - the 72nd anniversary of the NHS - people across the UK will be encouraged to applaud NHS staff at 17:00 BST (16:00 GMT). Many broadcasters will break away from normal programming to mark the moment.

On 4 July, people will be asked to put a light in their windows in remembrance of all those who died in the pandemic...

Well I don't have a light to put in my window, I suspect a number of people are going to make non-essential trips to purchase lights.

I wonder how many people who take part in the Clap for Carers would support a pay rise for NHS staff.

Apparently there was some sort of stealth clap for are NHS yesterday at 5pm. Did anyone take part/witness this?

Not even the usual nutcases were anywhere to be seen/heard on my road yesterday. The news media seem to be the only people who knew about it.

I thought the PM Didn't believe in gestures. Though now a clap for the NHS is redefined as a  clap for the capitalists, the bankers, the wealth creators he may as well show his appreciation.

Yeah, this was all over the news last night, on account of the NHS's birthday.

It wasn't even a fucking round number 72. 110 in octal though, so maybe that?

Nothing round my way. Was quite busy when it was a thing.

Perhaps people have seen it for what it is and won't clap Johnson*



*I clapped my johnson but no one was listening

I was walking home at claptime yesterday. I didn't see or hear anything. There was normally a bit of interest in Thursday night claps, but maybe it's more of an after-dinner thing. Maybe we can make some noise for the brave publicans next week.
