When Britain claps it is excluding foreign NHS workers earning less than £25k pa, says Priti Patel

THE home secretary has confirmed that when the country comes together to clap for carers, they are tacitly excluding any foreign nationals below the £25,000 threshold. 

Following the passage of the points-based immigration bill which classes anyone earning below the threshold as ‘unskilled’, Priti Patel asserted that the applause was only ever for senior nurses, doctors or consultants.

She said: “If you are a non-British care worker, refuse collectors, porters or otherwise disposable, put your fingers in your ears at 8pm tomorrow. The clapping is not for you.

“As we have been at pains to make clear for the last decade low earners don’t really count as people, and therefore deserve sneering contempt instead of gratitude.

“Yes, currently they’re running our health service, supply chains, care homes and the rest while we’re fannying around with apps and graphs, but it’s a temporary aberration. They’re not of any worth long-term.

“So please ensure that your weekly tribute is only to the British-born or internationals claiming residence of £25k-plus quality, or you’ll be kicked out of the country too.”

Iain Duncan Smith's sociopathic guide to ending lockdown

THE economy must return to growth. The human cost is immaterial. Former cabinet minister and rōnin Iain Duncan Smith outlines his uncompromising plans.

Abandon two-metre distancing

A large proportion of society is expendable. Benefits claimants, artists, the weak. Allow coronavirus to take its course, strip out the deadwood and emerge stronger as a nation. I go into this in more detail in my new book, My Challenge.

Legalise weekly murder

I saw a very intelligent and thought-provoking sociological text recently, The Purge. An outpouring of community spirit and wonderful exercise. If anyone needs a katana or garrotting wire, I keep a stock.

Compulsory mass gatherings

The public should be compelled to attend horse racing, music concerts, gay darkrooms and so on. Why? A military man like me knows you close on the enemy and get stuck in. Don’t show weakness and it’ll cut and run.

Drafting care home residents

Care home residents deserve to live out their last as productive citizens. Working on oil rigs, as prison officers or simply operating heavy machinery would give them their dignity back.

Court-martial teachers

Leftie teachers are agents of a foreign power: COVID-19. What they are doing – so far nothing – is treason. I’m not suggesting firing squads for all teachers, just a few televised special events on The One Show, in a special report by Emma Willis.

Scorched Britain policy

If people refuse to return to normal, flush them out of lockdown by setting fire to their homes. Lead an angry mob. Overturn a few cars. Open shops yourselves, by force.
