An unprecedented support package improving daily and responding to the people’s needs.

A measured and appropriate response and very supportive of all sectors as far and probably beyond what is reasonably expected.

No other government and certainly never a labour government would match this.
 

He's basically shut down a whole industry, with all the financial ramifications that come from that. Not an easy decision to make based on a few thousand cases of the virus.

I can only suspect the virus must have infected a LOT more people, who have minimal symptoms.

Walked up Prestwick main street thi evening, Spoons and the Buzzworks place (old Elliot's) HEAVING. About time as a fair proportion of the "great" British public are utter cunts.

I'd imagine plenty pubs will be heaving tonight as it's last orders for the immediate future.

As I said earlier this week, watch the bevvy getting hammered now in supermarkets, luckily I'm WAY ahead of that game. :thumbs2

It's part of the plan to reduce the spike that will drown the NHS, no secret amount of people with symptoms. :lol:

Had a chuckle at the PM saying in his PC that it was vital the tube and public transport kept operating. Someone needs to pass his message on to Scotrail who are axing about 50% of their operations from Monday. Their press release says their new emergency timetables have been designed to keep key workers moving yet there is barely a train before 9am. All this in "anticipation " of mass absence. WTF are the other 50% of their fully fit staff doing until they catch this anticipated illness as I see hee haw evidence of additional cleaning or disinfecting on any train I am on. At least they are free if avoiding barriered stations.

So you don't believe there are instances of people who've had, or presently got, the Coronavirus who have a mild cough and don't suspect they have it?

If the real figure is ten times the number of confirmed cases, then it's still a very small number of people.

Maybe it's in anticipation of staff illnesses?

Aye, but.............................but............................but.............................the buffoon...............................etc etc.
Makes some of todays tirades look extremely stupid now. 
"They" will be scurrying around looking for some other muck to spread. 
It's all welcome, the devil will be in the detail as always.

Like everything that's announced it's the delay in doing so that I have issues with. Its all knee jerk reaction once there's an outcry from those who support the pm and his party.

I know this won't suit your agenda

Just a huge amount of unreported people with symptoms.

He basically shut down that industry on Monday. Just took until today to change the language and say please.
But ffs, who instructs this at 5pm on a Friday.

To be fair the Chancellor came across well

Boris should have went the whole hog earlier the week though

I happen to agree.

People forget these decisions are taken with the input of various people.

Some nuggets seem to think Boris just wakes up and makes a decision then has breakfast.

Well at least he has now been decisive.

Just hope that this thing blows over before our entire economy collapses.

In the face of that, people complaining about only 80% of salaries being covered need to have a word with themselves. Some serious levels of entitlement out there.

There is every chance of world economic collapse and in the UK this will need decades of severe austerity to pay for all the measures. This will make post 2008 look like the good times once we eventually turn the corner.

No testing unless you present to hospital with a temp of 37.8 or above. Lots of folk with symptoms. Might be the flu that's also going around but we don't know.

Agree, I've had cold/man flu symptoms for a week, but tonight Dr Smirnoff will see to that.

Both of those statements are true. The problem can also be who the various people are giving input.

A few days ago I said my company had seen a drop of 60% in sales within a week. And following today's announcement it's dropped to zero income.

f**k me that was as fast and brutal as it was unexpected.

Maybe I can get a job as a shelf filler at Asda. At this rate I might need to sell my body at the docks.. 🤣

Anyone complaining about only getting 80% of their wages is welcome to visit me for a swift boot in the balls. 🤣🤣🤣
