No thanks.

I know somebody who insists she isn’t going back to work for 18 months but she’s still going to get a salary apparently.

🤷🏻‍♀️

A recession of that size will likely kill more people than the virus at this rate. It’s terrifying.

I'm with you OP.

There are local vulnerable people going round carefully scanning the pavements for change.

I think the trouble with the "endless lockdown" crew is they live in such nice places, they will never see the trouble caused.

I would like to go back to work before my sector collapses completely (no income for me at all at the moment).

Cantata I won't ask what your sector is but I was thinking about theatre.

I used to occasionally get £10 tickets for the NT. Now a lot of theatres have said they will be closed till October and if Johnson's plans are really bad, it could be worse than that.

I think theatre will either collapse or become the preserve of the very, very wealthy.

@Cantata sorry to hear that flowers i’m more scared of the economic calapse than the virus. Mass unemployment, no money, homelessness

I am also concerned about the impact on the arts, culture is something we vitally need in all is guises

I want to but I'm not sure when it will happen-I work at an opticians and routine eye exams are not an option at the moment.
