    Don’t get me wrong. Most opt outs are ineffective, but most hirers and legal firms didn’t understand the legislation as well as me / us.

    The wording of the regulation is, from memory, “before introduction or supply”

    Eg you can have introduction without supply.

    I disagree. Simon is one of the sharpest businessmen I have ever met.

    His overall view that the government will use Covid to take a lot of our freedoms shouldn’t be overlooked.

    The brollies should be ok for a short term pinch. Cash wise they sit on a pile of VAT and Tax take. They’ll then likely get away with Minimum Wage and immediate termination.
