Today’s hot topic: You will clap spontaneously at 8pm on Thursdays


TODAY’s papers are encased in a wraparound advert from the government on the coronavirus. Along with the snappy slogan ‘All in, all together’ it says: ‘Clap our carers 8pm every Thursday.’

Is it now government policy to instruct us what to feel and when and where to express it? Or would this be more appropriate in North Korea? Discuss!

PS: Police who have been busily dispersing members of the public who are too close together ignored social distancing orders when they joined in a clapping party on Westminster Bridge last night. One rule for them, one for us . . .
