I hadn't realised how many companies were making PPE.

Sorry for thread typo. 'Go use sounds awful' the 'go' shouldn't be there.

Hmm I’m only part way through the list but Asda have been rated good despite behaving unfairly to clothing suppliers.

That's interesting (and awful) @Unravelingslowly, I wondered if there would be gaps in the information.

Loads of booze companies started making sanitiser. Then realised that we also still really need booze!!

Yes, our local Gin company started making it. Must see if they have gone back to gin. It was very expensive hand sanitiser IIRC.

Isn't that just someone's blog? Hardly "information"

Sparklingbrook Sat 02-May-20 13:10:19

Oh ok @crustycrab, I thought it was interesting. So none of it is true?

It IS 'just someone's blog' but all the information contained within is freely available from other sources. The blogger has just consolidated it. Cheers Sparkling, it's an interesting read.

crustycrab Sat 02-May-20 13:59:42

Well there's another side to it as a pp demonstrated upthread.

The blogger just includes or excludes the bits they want. And it may not all be accurate. So no, it's opinion not information.

You could argue that Greggs have been incredibly irresponsible creating the hype they did last week

Are you asking which business we would like to go under/just supporting after corona?

If so:
- Wetherspoons
- Virgin

Erm, I think that's it

Sparklingbrook Sat 02-May-20 14:33:24

I found it an interesting read, and no I am not asking which businesses I would like to go under.

Apologies for anyone who thinks it's not the right sort of information, @ViciousJackdaw summed up my thinking exactly.
