Army snipers at strategic points to reduce the gene pool please. Business has a role to play. There is a reason that the support for business was given last week and it seems like some businesses are not prepared to do the right thing and claim the 80% to allow their workers to stay at home. Workers also need to play their part by refusing to travel in to work if their job is not essential (this really isn't that debateable, just ask the question "does my job save lives?" if the answer is no, then stay home). If businesses threaten their employees for staying home then they are breaking the law and will, ultimately pay a price for that. Social pariahs is just the start for these idiots.

I'm self-employed, but one of the companies I work for is based in Luton and has a team of eight. We have removed all their computers and monitors and had them installed at their homes, set up a remote network to share current project work to allow online collaboration as they don't use laptops for the work they do (not practical) but 36" monitors x2. The whole office wll be getting paid during this time from the business buffer funds and the bsuiness will be claiming 80% of the cost back.
Naz - I’d hope for the start of the 2021/22 season - tbh we haven’t finished this season (and we possibly won’t), and 2020/21 might feel a bit flat after all that’s happened - I suspect we won’t be feeling too “up” until the 21/22 season, so maybe that’ll be a focus for some celebration after all this crapness :/

I said to Dazzer of this parish last year that there would be at least one more balls up to get in the way of coming home. That was the £11m fiasco. I am an eternal pessimist, but even I didn't bank on a fucking pandemic. 2021 at the earliest.

What’s everyone’s best bet now on when (and if) NPL will open its doors? Mine is now spring 2021 at the absolute earliest - if at all.

Stay in and keep well.
All key workers on that tube are they? I mean, they could be perhaps, but most likely quite a few are self employed or zero hours workers, since the govt hasn’t yet done anything financially to discourage them from working. How does this get resolved?

Wu. That's ridiculous. Are people just not bothered or are they forced into travelling for fear of losing their jobs? I'm lucky I can work from home.

If people don’t do what they are told then everyone but essential workers will be locked down completely. It’s very quiet around here (not London). Supermarket delivery lady also said supermarket quiet yesterday and today.

Well, despite the 80% guarantee from the government because our company doesn't know when it will kick in we've all been asked to take a 40% pay cut.

Thankfully live several doors away from the Pink House. However one afternoon 3 young men, much the worse for wear already, rung my doorbell asking me whether mine was the Pink House? After asking them whether it looked like a F***ing Pink House I pointed them in the right direction.

If your looking in Spit - your local pharmacies, particularly independents are struggling with getting deliveries to local patients. There is no more in pharmacy’s delivering to patients whatsoever, the nhs has cut payments to pharmacy services year on year for approx 8 years. And now GP’s are screaming at pharmacies to do even more gratis deliveries as people are bullshitting that they are self isolating-as well as a lot of elderly patients having lost the people they rely on. I’ve witnessed this first hand over the last few days, mate has a couple of pharmacies and I’ve taken my van, ton of hand gel and all the protective equipment I could get and got delivering. Whether the nhs like it/approve he doesn’t give a hoot. Charging £3 per delivery and following all rules on distancing. He simply doesn’t have a margin to do it for free but £3 per delivery covers the cost and as a driver you can earn. I sorted out a hire van earlier and a semi retired cabby is in it. Can’t tell you how rewarding it’s been to help people that are completely isolated (as well as weed out those who are completely abusing the situation). Shout out to the pharmacy staff who are also front, centre, low waged and being abused by self entitled shitbags.

Re the construction dilemma, I’m renovating a property and last week told each trade to work to a schedule where 1 trade only, max 2 bods. Went there yesterday (pre Boris shut down). Not one took any notice. Will be looking for new trades in 12 weeks....
Majority of traffic on Burntwood Lane is cement lorries going up to Springfield housing development. Roads been quiet , like the 1970s.

Is a locksmith classed as a “key worker”? 😬

Whitehall - I guess it just comes down to timing, then. Do you live in the Pink House?

I live in Plough Lane and there is a steady stream of traffic going across junction; Gap, Durnsford, Haydons, Plough. Has got a bit quieter in the last hour. Constuction traffic a big talking point but private cars were far outweighing that.

RS - there is at least one plumber who looks at WUP occasionally. Maybe he'll tell us how he is working.

OI, one thing I've heard noone mention about essential work like plumbing is cleaning down all the hard surfaces after. If the virus can live on a hard surface for up to 72 hours then surely any kitchen worktop would need cleaning down after any workperson has been in.

Gove also said that plumbers could do essential work on boilers etc as long as they observed social distancing whilst working.

Give says yes, so maybe it’s fine, though the workers will be on tubes etc putting key workers at risk....

Whitehall - I live on Garratt Lane and it's been about 10-15% of usual traffic since I woke up at 5.15. Also, Blackshaw Road, Plough Lane & Durnsford Road virtually empty.

Mixed messages from the site. Some groups of people are going away, muttering in for'n. Some people are inside working. Key performance indicators? Both the snack wagons in the vicinity are closed but my yard is open and the lorries are all spinning up. So - fuktifino, basically.......
