The Envy of the World

151 days ago

In the face of the Covid emergency the NHS (envy of the world) deals with really matters: pronouns

The NHS, the envy of the world please do not mention Mid Staffs, is – as we are always told – underfunded and staffed by heroes. But as I have noted before, it does employ some folk to tweet the most almighty piffle out into the wider world. Today, the envy of the world addresses the BIG issue we all grapple with: misgendering. I present the tweet below, with no need for additional comment.

Just look at who the poor, cash-strapped NHS - The Envy of the World - is hiring

When you heard that Boris Johnson has been told by Princess Nut Nuts to give all NHS staff an inflation-busting pay rise, I bet you thought of poor nurses earning close to the average national wage of £26,000 and went outside at 8 PM to clap like a seal. But, of course, most of the staff the NHS employs are neither poor or nurses. Here are three vacancies going which, I am sure you will agree, will assist the fight against covid not a jot.

The cash-strapped NHS celebrates #PronounsDay - the envy of the world?

The poor NHS is so cash-strapped it can afford to employ Eddy as its LGBT Staff Network trans and non-binary lead. No I also don’t have a clue what that means either. The “envy of the world” is today taking time off from recording nurse led tik tok dances to celebrate world pronouns day which, I gather, means referring to my wife as “they” so as not to offend her.  I mean they. I am sure it is all money well spent. Should I go outside and bang a sauacepan at 8 PM tonight to show my appreciation?  OBEs and pay rises all round. They are all heroes. The envy of the world.
