Shocking 'F**k The NHS' Sign In Car Window Sparks Fury
A motorist who displayed a sign reading 'f**k the NHS' in their car window has sparked outrage.
The message was spotted by a woman in the Home Bargains car park in Mold in Flintshire, Wales, as she went shopping at about 4.30pm on Saturday.
She photographed the sign, which was taped inside one of the car's rear windows and said: "F**k the NHS. They get paid to save our lives. We don't get paid to save there lives." There's always one, and this is that one.
The woman said: "I was shocked and appalled someone could be so disrespectful towards the NHS and all they are doing.
"Not just during Covid-19 but every day. I think they are doing a fantastic job and really are true heroes."
The images were later shared on Facebook and quickly sparked fury across the region.
The woman's Facebook post read: "Not often things annoy me, but this got me angry.
"Firstly, you used the wrong 'there' it should be 'their lives'. Secondly, I'm pretty sure one day in your life mate you'll end up in hospital.
"Maybe then you can witness the fantastic hard work of all staff in the NHS, those on the front line, and all they do to save
lives each day and realise, they really don't get paid enough for what they do, nor enough credit."

Some of the hundreds of comments on the post included one that read: "What goes around comes around [...] This person will learn an important lesson when they need the help of the NHS. Think on this, whoever you are."
Another person said: "They do get paid...but they don't get paid enough for what they have to do."
An angry reader said: "Disgusting, absolute moron, NHS is something we are all so fortunate to have."
Last month NHS workers who were treating patients had their cars vandalised.
Dr Alec Watson, who triages people suspected of having Covid-19 over the phone at King's Cross Hospital, Dundee, was alerted to damage to his vehicle at around 10.45am on Sunday 22 March.
He found the front passenger window of his Volvo V40 had been completely smashed, leaving glass strewn across the centre's car park.
Dr Watson - who has been working extra hours to help with the crisis - branded the culprit's actions 'appalling' and said he will now have to take a taxi to work while the repairs are fixed.
He said: "We are hugely busy at the moment with coronavirus and this is the last thing we need. I'm semi-retired but have been working more to help ease the pressure.
"The passenger window was completely smashed, although nothing was taken as I don't keep valuables in the car.
"I was taken out of my busy work for an hour to speak to the police. It's appalling that someone has done this, especially during this time."
