"putting their arms around people ..."

I think if any of the current govt tried to put their arms around me they would get a sharp knee to the nether regions.....

I've just heard that and all it did was annoy me. Not quite as bad at Matt Hancock attempted sound but yesterday though. Which was something about having a working plan and the plan is working.!

If they put their arms - or any other part of their anatomy - near me, they'll wake up in hospital. Bloody awful phrase - I wonder how much someone got paid to come up with that vomit-inducing soundbite.

Bit ironic / insensitive really considering most people can't hit others right now. Are they trying to seem caring / compassionate perhaps
