Attention Seeking ‘Idiot’ Who Slated The NHS Vanishes From Social Media

Quite a few of our ‘Daily Ditters‘ sent us screenshots of a vile message that was written by someone who clearly is after some attention during this national emergency.  Ordinarily, we don’t ‘feed the trolls’ by giving them publicity, but this troll, or rather, the reaction to him, was different.  As a publisher on socialContinue reading “Attention Seeking ‘Idiot’ Who Slated The NHS Vanishes From Social Media”

‘Do As You Are Told’ | Anonymous Police Staff

As I sit and start writing this, it is 03:21hrs on Wednesday 25th March 2020.  I have just got home from a 12-hour late shift in the control room of a UK police service.

This poem has been sent into us by a paramedic who is on the front line of the fight against COVID-19: ‘Don’t call if you have a cough.

‘Hit The Ambulance’ Seems To Have Turned A Bit Sour

So about three weeks ago, a lady came to our team of admins with an idea.  The idea was to start a ‘game’ called “Hit The Ambulance”. The aim of the game? To leave random acts of kindness on ambulances.  So we wrote an article about it and made the idea ‘go viral’ when weContinue reading “‘Hit The Ambulance’ Seems To Have Turned A Bit Sour”
