Piers Corbyn flash-mobbed a London train with an anti-mask song about farts

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water – or the packed shops and buses – along comes a new, more transmissible variant of Covid-19, named Omicron, first identified by scientists in South Africa.

Obviously, it actually wasn’t all that safe to be in the water even prior to Omicron, certainly without a lifejacket, and if I’ve stretched this metaphor to breaking point – I mean masks and vaccines.

In response to the new variant, the government is making masks mandatory in shops and on public transport from Tuesday, under threat of a £200 fine, as well as introducing new self-isolation rules for travellers.

It’s almost the worst game of Monopoly imaginable, if you don’t count the time your baby sister swallowed the racing car and your dad made you all sift through her potty until it came out because he was winning when it happened.

Of course, some people instantly began the campaign against wearing masks at all, and you can probably predict who the more well-known might be.

Their whining was greeted with an appropriate amount of scorn.

One group turned their protest into a publc arts experience- sort of.

The world’s saddest flashmob, by Piers Corbyn and his political party, Let London Live, centred on this catchy number.

‘Wearing a mask
Is like trying to keep a fart in your trousers
What is it like?
It’s like trying to keep a fart in your trousers.’

Life’s too short to transcribe it properly, on the off chance of anyone fancying doing sing-along-a-Piers, but you get the gist.

We can only imagine what their unfortunate fellow travellers thought, but here’s what tweeters said about it.












Remember, though, that it could have been worse.
