Not listed in order of merit, they've all done incredible things in light of recent events......
Jacinda Arden,
Marcus Rashford,
Patrick Hutchinson

Agree entirely. It comes to something when a Premiership footballer is schooling the government (if you can call it that) of the day.

I definitely haven't been paying attention. Deliberately.

Agreed your list. It takes someone exceptional (I believe) to do what Patrick Hutchinson did. Even if I was strong enough, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have under the same circumstances.

For those of you that didn't follow events, P Hutchinson is a man of colour, he was at a Black Lives Matter event when he noticed a white right wing protester had been separated from his fellow protesters and was being surrounded by a number of black protesters, he was drunk, his chances getting out of there unscathed were nil.
Hutchinson simply saw another human in peril, went in and scooped the white guy up whilst talking punches from an angry crowd.
Others may have left the white guy there, thinking he deserved his fate.
He was aided by his friends, again they chose to ignore the difference of skin colour.

Oh yeah I did see that. That's the true spirit of the thing isn't it? Yes, black lives matter, and so do white ones. That's excellent.
