    As has been explained - this is an extraordinary situation where learning on your 1% money that you normally reserve for a dry spell won't be enough.

    We'll still be losing money hand over fist, the CJRS just means there's a slightly smaller... fist. That and the mortgage holiday and payment deferrals are absolutely for us.

    I get that but without this going on we would have been stuck with going inside at some point. People have done it for ages. Taking a gig through a brolly is hardly the end of the world of scraping the barrel. It's something thats going to become the norm for us. So this idea we do something that's normal for us yet claim covid support as well.. You get me..

    If there were such gigs available, I'd probably take one and if the rate wasn't derisory, I wouldn't claim
