    So ... Poops claims everyone is talking about a V shaped recovery he then supports this argument by posting to probably the only two threads he can find that are both 6 weeks old. There are presumably no recent links he can use because, contrary to his initial statement, everyone isn't talking about a V shaped recovery.

    Oh, and links I added were also dated mostly a month ago, and they also were not talking about a V shaped recovery.

    These are all from the 1st page in Google. You really do make up a lot of tulip.

    V was only ever a vishful dream by the powers at be.

    How many of the 8.5 million furloughed will end up unemployed when the scheme is curtailed?

    How many businesses are not viable with social distancing?

    It's hard to see how this is not going to be far worse than 2008. The early 1930s looks like a more realistic parallel.

    I thought they said a slightly lopsided V, which sounded more tick-shaped to me (not the bity critter, obvs)

    Even if social distancing doesn't impact businesses too much, the other big unknown is...

    Will people go back to normal levels of spending any time soon?
