The People ‘Kicking Off’ Because Of The Met’s Blue-Light Salute Are Missing An Important Point…

Posted by

Yesterday, emergency services personnel around the country gathered to honour the men and women who are on the front line of the battle against COVID-19. 

They did this by stopping what they were doing for three minutes before turning on their blue lights and sounding their horns as a mark of respect for NHS staff and keyworkers around the country. 

But one video, in particular, has stood out, owing to the sheer amount of emergency vehicles that took part in a blue-light salute in central London. 

The video below shows dozens of emergency vehicles, from ALL services – not just the Met Police – parked on a bridge in London as their blue lights lit the evening sky. 

They sounded their horns as a sign of solidarity with the NHS just as a HEMs helicopter carried out an excellently timed ‘bow’ over the bridge. 

As someone who has served in the Met police and the military, I was moved by the sight. As I am sure, millions of people around the country were too. 

The video itself has been viewed over a million times on Twitter

But we have started to see more and more people moaning and whinging about the fact that the emergency services in London found the time to take part in this fantastic tribute to the NHS. 

If you are not a part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem…

  1. Idiots who whine about this kind of solidarity simply need to be ignored. They are clearly ignorant, self-centered people who should be given no voice. Well done to the emergency services who took part in this, and many other, show of support for our key workers. Thank you to them and everyone who is helping the country, whether that be NHS staff, supermarket staff, bin men and every other essential worker.
