Our Crack Little Crack

bojo.jpg Clap For Boris
 

The whole ClapForBoris thing got a bit confused, didn’t it? Some people were clapping because they wanted to send their best wishes to our PM. But there were all sorts of other claps, too. Around my way there was: “Clap If You Don’t Think Boris Johnson’s Past Racist Comments WERE Taken Out of Context” and “Clap If You Don’t Think Boris Johnson’s Past Homophobic Comments WERE Taken Out Of Context” and “Clap If You Don’t Think Boris Johnson’s Past Sexist Comment WERE Taken Out Of Context”. There was also: “Clap If You’d Rather Cut Your Hands Off Than Clap For Boris Johnson”. Me? I started my own: “Clap If You’ve Previously Made Comments Along The Lines Of ‘I’m Perfectly Sanguine About Covid-19 Hitting No. 10’ But Your Words WERE Taken Out Of Context.” On my estate, not one person clapped for anything related to the PM; a gesture imbued with its own poignancy. I am, however, looking forward to the clap for delivery drivers. It’s happening on Wednesday but the organisers can’t say exactly when. Apparently it’s anytime between 8am-6pm.
