While most papers have splashed the Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard story over their front pages, including the singularly pungent claim by Depp that Ms Heard shitting the bed led to him seeking a divorce, the i paper has not been deflected from telling the world that alleged Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is shitting on a much wider part of the population - many of those NHS staff he was clapping for last weekend.
Hugo Gye, the i paper’s deputy political editor, told that there would be some exemptions, but not many: “Instead of free parking for all staff, DHSC will fund NHS trusts to scrap charges for night shift workers only, plus disabled patients and parents of seriously ill children”. Which leaves many workers with no alternative but to park - and pay.
Remember all those other key workers, the ones who keep supermarkets running, serve you at the pharmacy, staff the tills at fuel stations, deliver your groceries and other online purchases? They, too, have been thanked profusely by Bozo The Clown and his pals. But when they asked for a little more protection against violence, there was none.has told (cos it sells fewer papers than a Sleb libel action), “Usdaw has expressed deep disappointment that the government yesterday rejected proposals for a new law to protect shop workers from violence, threats and abuse, despite evidence that incidents have doubled during the coronavirus emergency”. There was more.
“Usdaw surveying estimates more than 150,000 shop workers have been assaulted since [a year ago]. Usdaw responded, along with a broad range of retailers, calling for a new law to tackle this growing problem. The government responded only yesterday to the overwhelming evidence they received and rejected extending the law to protect retail staff”. Maybe they will get a round of applause in lieu of action.
You voted Tory because you thought they gave a damn? Repent at leisure once more.
