This 80% wage from the government isn't even in place to help small businesses, The place i work at closes today with full pay for 2 weeks then 80% until all cash is gone from the bank after that its bankruptcy unless the government has this 80% in place. The company have told us 2 weeks Max without a government help, then redundancy.

Your gas & electric will be the least of your concerns in the next 3/4 weeks.

Same here for me I work for a small manufacturing company.(About 29 people)We were sent home yesterday with 2 weeks Half pay.After that God knows.The boss couldn't get any Info about the 80% from the government.So is paying us the 50% out of his own pocket.It was either that or star sick pay of £94 a week.Not looking good.

I’m still at work as the guidelines are so blurry.
All companies are saying it’s an essential job which mine isn’t!!!!

We need more clarification.
Only much time I saw 3 decorators vans painting the front of a house, how is that important? They should be fined!!!
Crazy.

I don't think the police have the manpower or appetite to fine everyone, or possibly anyone.

Supposedly they are going to have a friendly word with anyone breaking the rules and see what happens.

The 80% scheme isn't going to happen quickly....

How to access the scheme

You will need to:

  • designate affected employees as ‘furloughed workers,’ and notify your employees of this change - changing the status of employees remains subject to existing employment law and, depending on the employment contract, may be subject to negotiation
  • submit information to HMRC about the employees that have been furloughed and their earnings through a new online portal (HMRC will set out further details on the information required)

HMRC will reimburse 80% of furloughed workers wage costs, up to a cap of £2,500 per month. HMRC are working urgently to set up a system for reimbursement. Existing systems are not set up to facilitate payments to employers.

If your business needs short term cash flow support, you may be eligible for a Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan.

I took it all as...
not just "essential business" but all business that can respect the measures, and only if you can't work.

yeah the whole idea is just f*cked up

it's either a lockdown or it's not

telling people to stay at home but it's ok to go for a run, walk or cycle????

I went to the chemist today to pick up some meds for my mum and to be truthful I have never seen as many people walking around, cycling and jogging on a Tuesday day ever in my life, the chemist was also full of people too, the queue was out the door, oh 6ft apart from each other (like that's gonna help....)

the whole day was just like a very sunny bank holiday, 

it needs to be lockdown completely which I don't think will never happen

there's simply no easy answer

I don't believe these people Duncs.

I went in to Tesco this morning, got there at 08.10 - I had my spraying mask in the back of the van so put it on. Felt a proper dick at first but then I started seeing more people with masks on, not many people in there, everybody keeping their distance. Out of 80 people, 25-30 had a mask on and gloves.

Over 8000 cases in the UK now, 442 have already died!

Don't waste your time trying to find 'loopholes' in the rules, they'll chage soon anyway. Just be sensible and stay safe. Being hygeinic and staying away from other people as much as possible is all you can do.

Love to Martin too - not met him, but seems a crucial guy to this scene/hobby Clap

Sadly I think the most likely way out is 2 years of periodic shutdowns to keep casualties within the NHS limits:https://www.imperial.ac.uk/media/imperial-college/medicine/sph/ide/gida-fellowships/Imperial-College-COVID19-NPI-modelling-16-03-2020.pdf  (that paper that made the U-turn a week ago - see page 12)

The blurriness in the instructions are so that there doesn't have to be a full lock down.  The instruction is basically don't go anywhere near anyone that you don't absolutely have to. People - even thick bastards - should be able to work that out for themselves (NB I realise as I wrote that I might be calling people here thick bastards - that's not the intention!)

Of course there is the added dimension of people's livelihoods. Frankly that is a problem. The government needs to sort that quickly. I can't blame a great many people that should really not be out and about still being out and about. If they stop, they don't get paid, and cover for that is NOT sorted yet.

If you can avoid going anywhere and you can avoid being near absolutely everyone, then do. If your mates are being bellends about it, go the extra mile and get them to fooking stop.

If not enough people do it, then we will get a lock down regardless of if you believe the hype about coronavirus and spreading it or not.

Seconded. The lack of urgency at a time when this could have been contained is criminal. 

I work in the local A&E dept, as does my wife, so Ive got 2 hopes of avoiding a dose of COVID!

Work want us to run a skeleton staff on site with 90% working from home via Citrix & vpn.

Keeping the website and core infrastructure running has been deemed "essential work" so we've been shifted to provide cover...

Our management think this will last all summer and have cancelled out of as many summer clothing contracts as possible and have scaled down Xmas too.

FFS : The only thing that's selling well is loungewear, everything else is selling so slowly we have enough stock to last the rest of the year.

This is going to be messy - until 60%+ of the population have caught it and recovered itll just ramp up and kill in waves. If you lockdown so none gets it the second you let people out they will catch it in droves. So you have to let people catch it but at a rate where deaths are acceptable.

If we have less than 10,000 killed by this it'll be a win.

The high street may never look the same as a lot of shops will not survive, same for the self employed or small companies - the cashflow will simply stop for months.
