Thomas Moore has just become the oldest person ever to top the singles charts in the
He beat the sixty-eight year old Tom Jones by over thirty years; Tom is
ninety-nine. The Rogers and Hammerstein cover of You'll Never Walk Alone by Captain Tom and Michael Ball has raised
twenty-eight million pounds for various welfare schemes in the NHS. (The HPWA
is not officially registered as a charity and so will receive nothing, although
I do not ask for anything.) Captain Tom turns one hundred years old next
Thursday so he will be still be at number one for at least one day into his
second century. He also has successfully completed a sponsored walk; one
hundred laps of his garden, a twenty-seven yard circuit. This makes just over
one and a half miles. Quite an achievement for a man of his age who cannot walk
without a wheeled zimmer. Source: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-52415966.
The title of the song is ironic of course considering the social distancing
rules currently enforced. Tom has lived a rich and varied life. He was an army
officer who served in World War II and afterwards ran a concrete mixing company
and raced motorcycles. When he finished the last lap of his walk there was a
guard of honour from his old regiment to greet him. As an NHS veteran myself of
twenty-three years, I'm deeply touched by Captain Tom, Michael Ball and
everybody who has supported the NHS. I say that mourning the loss of my
colleagues, see: http://hpanwo-hpwa.blogspot.com/2020/04/ive-lost-another-brother.html
I know some people reading this believe that what Captain Tom did was a staged publicity
stunt as part of coronavirus disinformation conspiracy. There is a coronavirus
conspiracy, but this is not a part of it. UK

I'm sorry to report Brian Darlington, a porter at Mid-Cheshire Hospitals, has died of COVID 19 disease. He was described as having a sense of humour and positive outlook. I think these are essential for hospital portering. Facilities supervisor Richard Studinski said: "Nothing was ever too much trouble for Brian. He worked hard and was happy to do whatever was needed of him. He always walked round the hospital with a smile on his face, passing out sweets to colleagues he'd meet on the corridor. Mid-Cheshire's chief executive James Sumner said: "Brian had dedicated over twenty years to the trust during his NHS career and will be sadly missed by all who knew and worked with him. He was without doubt a treasured member of the team." Brian leaves behind his wife of forty-six years, Ava. Condolences to her. Rest in peace, MEP&DB Porter.

I'm very sad to report that two porters at the
have died of COVID 19 disease. Healthcare service providers are by far the
highest risk group for any contagion because anything at large in the community
ends up concentrated in hospitals. Hospitals are like vacuum cleaners for
bacteria and viruses. You might think the title of this article is misleading.
The two men who died are not literally brothers of mine. They are not related
to me at all. However all hospital porters are my brothers and, in some
instances, sisters. In fact they are closer to me than that. I will not post
any source links because the media has named the two porters against the wishes
of their families, who asked for privacy. I shall grant them that. Rest in
peace, MEP&DBP's. I salute you. At the present time thirty-six NHS
personnel have died of the coronavirus. I salute them all. John

I would like to pay homage to MEP&DB&S Porters at
' Hospital in St
but also of course the entire civilian staff too, the doctors, nurses, PAM's
and civilian ancillaries. You have saved the life of a great man, our leader
Boris Johnson. Never in living memory have we had a Prime Minister we can
respect. Boris is a strong man, a brave man and a decent man. Without him there
would have been no Brexit, no foiling of the New World Order machinations.
Boris is a starseed and a lightworker. He is where he is because of the 2016
Effect. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I'd also like to give
tribute to the dedicated friends of freedom who have invaded the establishment
where the Illuminati have had free reign since time immemorial. To QAnon and
all those like him/her/them, much appreciation. Boris was very lucky. He had a
near-miss with death. Thanks to you, he came through it safely. Bless you all! London
