Effect of Coronavirus

It'll take UK roughly the same - 3 months. Johnson will have lifted most if not all restrictions by end of June just to try and get the economy going, irrespective of deaths and infection rates.

Back to work oiks - 21st century equivalent of cannon fodder.

Very depressing but I fear you may be right when you put it like that. At least we are more sensible and less blase with human life up here.

Depends on whether the Student Grants, © Viz, out there fancy a protest.

Just got a text from Jet2 saying my flight to Rome on the 6th of July has been cancelled. They're no re-starting flights until the 15th of July.
Haven't received the e-mail yet to find out how to get a refund.

You’ll very soon (if not already), get an email with your 3 options, option 3 is for your refund, I’ve already got my money back (about 2 1/2 weeks).

Jet2 have behaved very well and will definitely get my business again!!

BP announce 2,000 job losses in the UK, 10,000 worldwide. 
No doubt [mention=6848]Ayrshire Saints[/mention] will blame the UK government. :lol:

Aye this is bad, BP are one of the biggest client for the oil services company I work for, they had already cut their portfolio of modifications for their offshore assets due to oil price slump / Covid.

Wrong thread and your memory is playing up. Below is the quote I responded to by saying we will see how BJ and co will respond to mass Scottish redundancies (it was RR at that time). I stand by my assertion that they will do very little. There was no blame of the UK govt for the actual redundancies but you knew that I'm sure !

"This Tory government will make sure everyone who is willing to work will be looked after .
The Shirkers, wasters and the workshy will reap what they sow"

Why should they do anything or do you expect the government to bail out EVERY company at this time? 

Oh, I know exactly what you were inferring.

They'll get to you mate, they worked through the backlog in date order.

As I mentioned, very easy for us to get the refund, or they offered a voucher with £100 of another holiday.

At that point getting away wasn't clear so we declined.

I would accept that now as I keep blabbing on about, things will be back to "normal" by the end of July, IMO. 

Yeah.

Email duly received, and, as you say, I've to wait until they contact me. 

Still waiting for Ryanair refund. I suspect that may be a very long wait. Cunts.

Fortunately I took the option of cancellation without a fee, on Booking.com, for the hotel. One click of a button and cancelled at no cost.

Selfish as it is, I'm still pissed that we've missed out on going to Krakow and now Rome. The latter for our 10th wedding anniversary.

Bollocks

Meant to be flying out for the 14th July

Would have made no difference anyway as Spain aren't letting us in until the infection rate gets much better

f**kem .

I'm sure the Rolls Royce employees who "want to work" will take solace in your shite to tonight. BJ does not give a flying f**k about Scotland or any of it's inhabitants in fact the same can be said for anyone north of the Midlands. Away back and sit yer fat arse in your cab waiting for your next £4 Asda run.

Exactly my point, Read the quote again.

Not sure about this "other" quote, which wasn't yours, your quote above was where I mentioned your stance that somehow the government were to blame and should take action for the Rolls Royce redundancies.

Just seen a cracking wee item on the BBC news........................The Bingo Bus.

Some community minded people go round the streets, Ferguslie was on tonight's item, and get he street residents to play bingo.

Also a bit of karaoke and a wee Slosh at the end.

Brilliant idea, getting people to know each other and giving the punters something to look forward to.

Well done. 

Was this too much of a upbeat story for someone from Paisley to post? :rolleyes:
