I work in the events industry which has shut down. I would get temporary work in a hospitality business, but BoJo has advised not to go those so they will not want any staff.
How will I pay my bills?
How will the airline crews survive?
How will gym workers and shop staff pay their bills when no one turns up so they have their hours cut.
It’s always the bottom of the social standing that is sacrificed first.
BoJo needs to stop being Trump about it, trying to nurse the situation so that the government doesn’t have to pay for it.
Terrible leadership – don’t give advice, make a decision and take responsibility by looking after the citizens of this country in their hour of need.
TAP – Once this fiasco is over, people will be wondering what happened to the epidemic when there is nothing to show for it. People will forever remember the government sold them down the river and destroyed their livelihoods. Big political mistake. A crime against humanity.

Yes, it will become an economic crisis – or rather an inequality crisis – as different industries are affected differently.
The scandalous 5 week wait for Universal Credit will also cause great hardship along with suicide, stress-related illness and family conflict and violence.
