Strange, been outside all day and only heard a couple of bikes. It's so quiet at the moment.

Fwiw when I was driving along the motorway to go to work this morning, I was literally the only vehicle for around 15 miles & virtually nothing coming the other way as well.

He'll be ok, he's not already living under the threat from an existing terminal condition.

I was shocked to hear he's in his 50s. I thought he was older than that.

the usual combinations of identifiers when guessing someone's age.

Work have started to ask for people to go on furlough.

The top staff/partners/board members have all taken a 20% pay cut for 3 months.

I cant see my company hanging on much more longer than 6 months to be honest without drastic action

I hope Boris recovers quickly

The hardest part will be once furloughed is stopped by the Govt.

Most companies will have no work at all for a while unless they take people off furlough gradually rather than all at once.

Rent is the biggest issue. Most pubs, clubs, restaurants etc don't own the properties they're in. They are closed but still owe rent.
