Kirstie Allsop said Covid revealed people’s ‘mealy-mouthed gutlessness’ and Michael Rosen’s response is all you need

To the world of Kirstie Allsop – stick with us, please – where the TV property botherer has been sharing her thoughts on Covid – among many other things – with the Daily Telegraph.

And there was no shortage of responses to what she had to say. There would have been more had the Telegraph not done this.

How mealy-mouthed of them.

But really, the only response you need is from the great Michael Rosen, author and former Children’s Laureate.

Rosen, 75, caught Covid last year and spent seven weeks in intensive care, six of them on a ventilator.

And this is what he had to say to Allsop.

To conclude …

And this.
