You saw the NHS nurses at the Olympics ceremony last night… but what happened afterwards?

They returned home of course, many of them decked out in their brilliant costumes. Some went out drinking afterwards.

Naturally, Twitter was ablaze with their pictures. Here is a selection.

If they r goin out on the piss after ther ceremony then that is putting patients in danger if diseases. The nurses could be getting diseases on they uniforms when out drinking and shagging.

They should be sacked for this as it is making the nhs lookj bad.

Bring back matron.

I call Poe’s Law on 1.

@2.

Well u can piss off cos I aint done anything illegal so the law cant touch me.

Anyway you should be nicked for pretending to be that dead commie who made loads of money by having pictures of hiomself on t shirts an that.

Would it be too trite of me to say “Obvious troll is obvious” in relation to comments 1 and 3?

Also “Obvious troll obviously has no idea what Poe’s Law is”.

Heh. ‘Armchair revolutionary’ certainly picked a good name that gets the right sort of people annoyed.

@ 4.

u r clearly very clever. so clever you got your educaten when the tories was in last and not when new labour was in cos if you had got it under tony blairt then you wouldn’t be able to wotk things like that outl.

now find out about poe an you will np that he wrote lots of horror stories but he didn’t ever write anything about trolls.

who looks stupid now eh?

Especially those who can’t spell. Something tells me the difference between Che and Chaise is a mystery on our fast-food ordering friend.

Hi Big Mac! I notice that in one thread you’re whining about Sunny deleting your posts, but now you actually want me to be arrested based on my pen-name. One rule for you and another for everyone else, eh?

“now find out about poe an you will np that he wrote lots of horror stories but he didn’t ever write anything about trolls.

I call Poe’s Law on this comment about Poe’s Law.

Educated in the 1970s under Labour in fact.

Mr Big Shake is definately a Private Eye writer, I recognise his commentary “from the Message Boards”. Will he furnish us with a “4 Maddie” piece too?

I been away cos the olympics is on telly an unlike some other i r not sad an have a lief. some of u whos on here evfery day must be very lonly or else you skiveing all day at work or else you are paid to do this. I work at a proper job where we don sit there on our arse skivin all day an i sees me mates and watches telly like normal people.

Oi Mr Guava, I want u 2 be arrested cause you said that I shoud have the poes called out on me because I had broken the law. so yeah, if you reckon i should be nicked then u shoud 2. Its at the top of this thread 4 everyone 2 c so u cant denie it. And if you arent the commie, then why u pretend to be him eh? I call u Mr Guava so it clear theirs a difference.

An u Mr prior, you really have showd yourself up now. cos the thing is if you was educated under labour in the 1970, then they was only in for 5 years in the 1970 so that would mean you only went to school 4 5 yearsz. Well that would explain why your not all that there. ether u only had 5 years at school or else u cant add up that you cant do all your school in the 1970 idiot.

An u davidh, why u reckon you can just join in an ave a go eh? whotve I domne 2 u eh? theirs nothing wrong with my eye or with my privates not that its any of youre busness anyway. But i dont need specs an i dont need 2 go 2 the clap clinic.

12. Will Prior

Not that I should have to give my life story, but after 4 years in state schooling I was home schooled because my Parents didn’t want me to be schooled under a Conservative curriculum.. Those 4 years were during Labour’s time in power.

13. Big Mac Large Fries Large Chocolate Thick Shake.

Hi will. thanks for the splain mate. you got parents that cared a lot about you cause they taked u out of school and give you education at home like the snobs abd the posh bastrds get what is showing a lot of care for you there child.

but it is very sad for u 2 cause u didnt go to a school will normal children lik me an mi friends and so u did miss out on smashin the fuck out of the tory kids in the paleground an makin em cry.
