    Do you realise how many people on zero hours contracts keep the place running?

    The government has no plan for covering the costs of forcing people to stop working. No plan for child care once the schools close.

    The fear of merely living in London is the same of the bat who invented coronavirus purely because bats have a faster metabolism.

    London isn't an island.

    In Italy they locked down one region in the North so people fled resulting in them locking down the entire country.

    Boris needs to order all people who can work from home MUST work from home.

    My work colleagues at a major bank are being forced to go into work even though they can easily wfh. I am due to switch with them in 1.5 weeks and I will have to go in. Absolutely nuts.

    Crazy thing is that most of my colleagues don't seem to care. I was about to have a real moan with the boss but having heard views of workmates, I don't think I will bother as will be wasting my time.

    I just told my client "I'm working from home now for the duration". If they'd said no, I'd have said "goodbye".
