Sorry to be the party pooper…but!

I dont want to be the ‘Party Pooper’, and I am genuinely sad about Prince Philip’s death, but 127,000 people have died in the UK from COVID19 in the last year and a half.

When you consider that the thousands of NHS workers, who fought to prevent these deaths (and in many cases paid with their own lives) have been told that they can’t have a pay rise, just a round of applause, the expense of Prince Philip’s funeral just doesn’t sit right with me.

A private family funeral, is a hearse, flowers and family, not military bands, a huge policing operation and license payer funded endless TV coverage.

Just saying?
