A statue for Sir Captain Tom

But the Liberal Fascists will rip it down piece by piece for they have so much hatred with anything promoting pride for the United Kingdom.

1. Why would ‘the Liberals’ hate Sir Tom?

2. ‘Liberal fascists’ is the definition of an Oxymoron.

3. Captain Tom literally fought for the liberal cause against fascism.

So apart from the incorrect and needlessly antagonistic nature of your post, yes, good idea - a statue would be a great memorial both for Tom, what he did for the NHS and the collective experience of the whole country during the pandemic (which you think is made up).

I reckon we should move with the times and instead of having statues, commemorate through a hologram. Not only would it be unbreakable (and fun watching the British Rednecks try) but it could be a 'pop up hologram' also appearing at other places at other times. And we could give Sir Tom a break every so often by rotating our heroes and displaying the likes of Chris Whitty, Winston Churchill, Jenny Agutter etc. there from time to time.

Just shows how much of a unifying and inspiring figure Sir Tom was, Ihearye!

Maybe fund the NHS appropriately so 100 year old men don’t need to walk around their back gardens to raise funds.

Correct order of titles is Captain Sir. Here to educate. ;)

Time after time after time you read that the Tories are trying to sell the NHS or want it to fail, and the only reason I've ever seen that anybody can say why is to line their own and their mates pockets. And yet, as far as I'm aware, there is not a shred of proof. Anyone who tried to get rid of the NHS or sell it off completely would get lynched.

As Ihearye indicates, Labour have done it far greater damage over the years, yet it remains one of Labour's main arguments - that they will save the NHS whilst The Tories will destroy it. The country has been under Conservative rule considerably longer than Labour since the NHS was introduced and, amazingly, the NHS is still going. Even Evil Mrs Thatcher kept it going. Is it run as well as it could be? Probably not, but there's been a lot of people try and nobody has got it right yet.
