Junior Doctors’ strike marred by poor quality chants


Doctors strike chants not great

The Junior Doctors’ strike has been branded a failure due to the bland and unoriginal quality of the chanting at picket lines.

In almost all footage of the strike, the doctors can simply be heard shouting ‘save our NHS’ over and over again with slight rhythmic variations.

“It wasn’t very catchy,” said average human being Simon Williams.

“I mean, these are meant to be properly intelligent people so you’d have thought they’d have come up with something better than just going ‘Save our NHS’ over and again.

“I mean, I don’t know much about politics, but what about – ‘We are Doctors, we are ace, the PM f**ked, a dead pig’s face’?

“I don’t know what they’re doing with their time, to be honest.”

Political pundits have joined in the criticism of the chanting.

“It was an utterly wasted opportunity,” said Andrew Rawnsley.

“I mean, you can have all kinds of fun with the Health Secretary’s surname.

“I think I’d gone with something like ‘Jeremy Hunt, what a runt, he’s got a face, like a donkey’s c**t,’ but then I suppose I am an experienced broadsheet journalist.”

A spokesperson for the Junior Doctors has apologised for the unimaginative nature of the chanting, but explained that the doctors hadn’t slept for just over a month and were struggling to remember their own names, let alone satirical protest songs.
