What a load of crap if people really want to show their appreciation then get onto eBay/amazon/Groupon and buy some PPE and make it up into individual packs and drop it off at your nearest hospital

I.m pretty sure they would appreciate that much more than a load of people giving them the clap.

I think this is just spreading the virus - people live in apartments in Rome & Madrid and were clapping from their bolconies. It showed a chavy south london street on skynews of terrace houses. Kids passing phones to neighbours kids, touching each other and gathering in big groups on their street - no one 2 metres apart. My friend who is an ambulance paramedic agrees - 'we'll clap each other when this over - it has barely begun'!

God there are some (always the same) miserable gits on here looking to score tiny political points whenever they can.
We live out in the sticks with only a few houses around us, and I have to say it was a heartwarming and moving moment.

A lot of people have donated/helped/volunteered to help with the NHS.

Some people can’t in these times but want to give some appreciation. Thought it was good and moving.

At least we’re not Stockport

Mrs P who is a community nurse (going back on the wards in 2 weeks time after doing some refresher training ) thought the clapping was fantastic She would like to see a decent pay rice as in the last 10 years she has fallen behind due the austerity by this government

I’m with NS on this one. What was the point? How did that benefit NHS workers on the front line, saving lives? Don’t get it me. Wife was stood outside ours clapping, was loads on our road apparently.

How are the NHS any better after it?

i often agree with you NS but on this I think you're wrong. firstly, buying stuff of ebay, etc. Do you think this will be sensibly/fairly priced and therefore good value? Unlikely. Will it be of a standard that is suitable for the NHS? Maybe? Maybe not? Will it turn up? Maybe, maybe not. Do our delivery drivers need anymore small drops? Should "we" be making more unnecessary journeys and turning up randomly at the local hospital? Could the hospital take advantage of your generous randomly purchased ebay goods? would they be able to trust the integrity of those goods or would they end up getting binned? Nah, that would be just as pointless as you believe the clapping gesture to be.

Some folk really are pretty small minded if you feel the need to criticise such a small, cost free but well meant gseture of good will to those in the front line, give yersels a shek man!

I'd like to just add, I have some new neighbours. I've briefly met "him" at a social distance but not her, she's a nurse. Last night while we were outside clapping, I aw her car drive past as she arrived back from work. although out of sight, I made sure I continued to clap until after I'd heard her car door shut, I hope she heard what was happening around the village

What a shame a thread dedicated to a fantastic all round countrywide appreciation of everyone who is caring for us is politicised by the usual forum bell ends.

It's just a little show of respect,solidarity,whatever you want to call it.
Do you join in with a minutes applause/silence at matches or not as they don't bring the recently deceased back to life do they?

The answer to most of your questions is I.ve no idea but as medical professionals that I know have been resorting to buying eqpt from places such as Home Bargains and B and M [ once B and Q had quickly ran out ] and as one of them said to me anything is better than nothing and I don't think the quality from Groupon and e.Bay will be any worse in fact I bought some reusable masks a couple of weeks ago and was amazed at the quality of them.

As for the situation with delivery drivers its been deemed that if they and those they are delivering to stick to the current protocols there is virtually no risk at all [ At mine they park outside, leave the stuff on the doorstep then ring me to tell me its there watching from the van while i open the door and take it in and as I understand it they then tick a box on their handset that says they physically saw you take it in ] I don't think they.ll stop deliveries of any sort as for very little risk it's a pretty good way of distributing anything that's needed to be and don't forget that's exactly what Boris.s army is being set up to do but sticking stuff into the budget delivery sector would be a pretty efficient way to do that [ Perscriptions for instance ].

There you go that's a good example of something that's not exactly standard NHS issue but would do a much better job than nothing or the welding goggles that some staff have been using and what's more only £7.99 on Discount experts. I.m tempted to buy the lot and stick em on eBay at twenty-five quid.






















That was a joke by the way

They.ll only let you buy a maximum of six

It would be nice to have a round of applause for shop workers. They are also potentially exposed to the coronavirus on a daily basis and many of them are on minimum wage.

Go into you're nearest BandQ and ask them why they have no welding goggles ?

Welding goggles are dark tinted to protect the eyes from the bright oxyacetylene flame or in the case of a full mask for electric welding. You mean clear protective goggles such as those used when using an abrasive wheel or angle grinder. They would be unlikely to be able to see much through welding goggles or a full face welding mask. Like I said, you've clearly not done much welding.......

Excellent explanation. The last time I had anything to do with welding was when I worked on the gas pipelines in my younger days and remember a lad I got to know who was a welder always had a pair of clear goggles round his neck but on thinking about it you're probably right as I think he used one of them tinted full face mask things when doing the welds and the goggles were for when he was grinding them down.

The latest welding masks react to the light so you can see through them and have their own built in respirators to block out any dangerous fumes.

Not for one minute say they would protect you from coronavirus, but better than a lot of things out there.

Downside is you can pay around £1000.00 for one.
