Laurence Fox trolled the NHS and his magnificent self-own earned a standing ovation
Just a day to go until the London mayoral elections and while we’re naturally interested in who wins, we’ll mostly be looking to see how Laurence Fox fares (last time we looked, you might remember, he was neck and neck with Count Binface).
We only mention the F-word because he’s been on Twitter trolling the NHS and it’s fair to say it didn’t end well.
It started when said NHS psychiatrist Dr Benjamin Janaway said this about the mayoral hopeful.
Kinda think things backfired on Lozza there.

It was spotted by Fox, naturally, who replied with this.
Which, quite apart from this …
Laurence Fox criticising the NHS for “needing” to be applauded, something the public chose to do and the Tories hijacked instead of actually paying them for their efforts, really is next level arseholery. Get out and vote London, Binface as 1st option, then whoever you want.

… was also a magnificent self-own, as these people were delighted to point out.
Laurence Fox momentarily forgets he used to be an actor. A job that literally does need a round of applause to finish work. https://t.co/L6UctPaFkF

You literally chose a profession where if you did a good job youd expect applause. You know, back when you had a career.

"An institution so sensitive it needs a round of applause just to finish work"
You mean – like an actor? https://t.co/R9baLWKCQj

Just to point out that you were an actor. A job which when performed live almost always ends in a lengthy round of applause to signify appreciation.
However, I can fully understand that expression of appreciation is something that you dont have much direct experience of…

If only I could think of a profession where applause followed completion of their work pic.twitter.com/R2b4a6wtaR

And also this.
You are an absolute disgrace.
The amazing thing about our NHS is that its brilliant staff would treat you in an emergency despite this despicable tweet.

Fox wasn’t leaving it there either, as you might possibly have guessed.
I pay your salary chum. You lot should learn how to say thank you. https://t.co/Cq4bL67pl9

To which the only possible response is surely this.
Laurence Fox tells an NHS practitioner that he pays his salary, with the implication therefore he should be both silent and grateful. I'm hoping you all disagree. We are grateful to the NHS and its staff for all their efforts. pic.twitter.com/xFIem2IClU
