I’m probably going to get pelters in some quarters for this but I feel it needs to be said.

I’ve often defended the protest organisers, however, I feel yesterday they got it badly wrong in London. Damagingly so.
I’m going to tell you why👇🏻
When I attended the march back in April, the beauty was the sheer diversity of people in attendance (as I wrote about at the time).

June and July was the same. You don’t attract a diverse crowd like that by focusing on niche topics — you do it by targeting key central themes.
Themes like lockdown, like vaccine passports, and like bodily autonomy/mandatory vaccinations. Issues that have a solid foundation from which to argue our point of view; issues which, with some gentle persuasion, members of the public at large could/should get energised about.

I’ll be honest as an ICU doctor this actually makes me want to cry. A gut punch for NHS staff everywhere tonight. I’m gutted 😔

This is in Hyde Park. The thing that tears me up about this is we have been coming out of lockdown slowly to PREVENT a third wave and further lockdowns. This kind of selfish behaviour risks not only everyone’s safety but further lockdowns.

I can’t...I just can’t.
NHS staff are still living through the trauma of the last year. This is a slap in face for all us and for everyone who has lost friends, colleagues and family members. Why can’t these people just go and have a beer in a nice pub garden?
