BBC News - Captain Sir Tom Moore: 'Horrific' trolling hidden from Army veteran

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-56085814

Just wondered what the views are on this? After such a noble and selfless act, raising millions for the NHS...was it right for him to take a free flight for a holiday to Barbados? Risking his, his family's and other people's lives?   The irony of course being that he died of Covid.   Of course trolling is never condoned but I do understand why some people might question his actions. You wonder how many other people were infected as a result.  I do feel that he let the side down.  Or did he deserve a holiday, being 100, and raising tens of millions?  It's a tough one isn't it.

Travel abroad was still allowed at that time. Precautions were undoubtedly taken, and Capt Tom tested negative on his return. I see no problem.

A couple of thousand years ago, another guy alledgedly tried to make the world a better place.

His mate snitched on him for a few bob, and his detractors nailed him to a cross.

You just can't please some folks.

My parents, aged 83 and 80, haven't even been to Sainsbury's since September, let alone Barbados.  I think it was unwise, given the situation, his age, and his position as a noble role model.  But I won't nail him to a cross. We all do what we feel is right at the time. I think I'm just surprised that he would take the trip and risk the lives of the NHS staff he raised funds for, regardless of where he caught it. The more exposure to other people, the higher the chance of contracting it.  Nowhere is risk free. At the end of the day, we were still in a global pandemic, regardless of travel rules.  I don't think I'll ever understand the decision to go. If he didn't care about his own risk, why didn't he care about the risk to others, especially after his fundraising? There's so much contradiction and irony, I can't get my head round it at all.  Still it's all academic now and it doesn't detract from the incredible work he did and the legend he has become. RIP Tom. 🏅
