THE UK’s teachers and nurses are looking back at the early days of the pandemic lockdown when life for them was just one long party.
The public sector workers admitted Tory claims that they had a quiet drink after work, just like Boris Johnson did with his wife, interior designer and 40 colleagues, were totally accurate except ‘it wasn’t always so quiet’.
Ward sister Jo Kramer said: “Hospitals at that time, with the world locked down and death rates soaring, were party central.
“By the end of March, we’d put a sound system in the nurses’ lounge. By April we had a professional lighting rig, and by May we employed a full-time DJ.
“The finish of every shift was a no-holds-barred bacchanalia with booze, recreational substances and casual sex. What can I say? It’s just what you’re in the mood for after a 14-hour shift nursing the dying who can only say goodbye to their families on Zoom.”
Teacher Emma Bradford said: “They’re right about teachers as well. Despite our workplaces being alcohol-free by law and schools being closed during lockdown, we’d all gather there and get pissed.
“I still remember staggering around the playground, absolutely hammered, slurring to my colleague ‘I hope Boris and his team in Downing Street are partying this hard. They f**king deserve it’.”
