UK leads fall in global trust in government COVID responses: poll

Well let me tell you guys spouting off about the UK government here is an on the ground brief report

 

8 - 10 million on furlough, no financial difficulties as the UK government is paying 80% of the wages until at least the end of June, many of my colleagues are on full wages working from home, others where essential are working in offices on full salary. There will be a little but not too much current financial hardship, due to the swift action and decisions of the government early in the crisis.

Food supplies are plentiful and now the idiots who stocked up are having to use their goods pile before expiry, the queues are becoming shorter to enter the supermarkets. Goods are plentiful, there is no restriction on alcohol other than the pre covid buying rules.

Masks are requested in busy or confined spaces, most do not bother.

People can now travel, spend a day outdoors, exercise, are just being asked to be aware and social distance

Children are heading back to school

More shops and retail food outlets are opening with spacing in place almost every day on my travels now see places opening but taking into account the situation

July will see encouragement for many to return to work, initially maybe part time until business ramps up, but again the government will support with possibly 50% of salary expected through to October

 

Despite all the whining and moaning and the persistent highlighting of various 'government mistakes' by those who love to see their words in print, in general society in the UK is not too disgruntled and in all this covid 'lock down' are rather relaxed

 

So much so if people want to demonstrate, protest, complain, most of society are happy to let them get on with it, while alternatively they relax and consider the positive ways government support has made their life throughout this situation much more tolerable, looking to move forward into a post covid environment before too long.

 

 

Feel the government has done all it could in the circumstances however if you look at British airways,think their actions are going to be the start of some disturbing changes in employment practised in the west and believe me I hope i,m wrong about this one.

I think you are correct. The only way western countries can compete in the global economy is paying less in wages. I think we are seeing the start of this, laying off workers and hiring them back on reduced salary contracts.

The only thing Corbyn has going for him is that he's a Gooner, everything else no way, can't forget his IRA buddies.

Gooner past tense goner present tense.

The UKs problems are compounded by the low IQ of its inhabitants. The intelligent have died off or left long ago. 

3 or 4 news channels on tv and a handful of tabloid newspapers are believed by the sheeple.

£14 billion a year donated to overseas aid says it all for me.

Sending it's best and brightest hopes for the future to lead infantry charges in WW1 didn't help. WW2 seems to have completed the job. Gone from top dog in the world in 1900 to has been now.

I hesitate to describe the English character given that in 10 years working in London I rarely saw an English person.

"by those who love to see their words in print,"

It would have been cleverer to have made this comment in a shorter post!

It could be suggested that the people that need to "man up" are the losers of the democratic referendum result. Most people have accepted the result, there is just a small pocket of resistance that needs to be educated on how voting works.

The "consequences of the actions" of the democratic result will be most likely a Canada or Australian type deal, but one thing for sure it will be on the 31st of Dec 2020, no more extensions for the remainers hoping to throw a spanner in the works. 👍

Not me. Brexit is a done deal. Get on with it.

It's a vote, of course from a practical point everybody has to accept it (despite the lies, and Cambridge Analytica/ Dom the con lawbreaking). The idea that people should stop fighting for what they believe in every time they lose a vote is beyond ludicrous. Nigel the forgotten Farage said so himself. 

Brexit isn't the topic BTW.

I see that Boris's popularity is sinking through the floor, and it appears that he needs an earphone to get instructions on what to say at PMQs. Just getting more and more of an embarrassing struggle, having to defend him. Good luck, it's only going to get worse as the lying buffoon unravels. 😆😆

 

Yada yada yada.😂

IMO, I don't consider the UK government headed by johnson to be able to achieve a Brexit done deal with the EU. They'll pander to the USA's woeful health standards, and accept chlorinated chickens instead - and call it a victory.

 

Waste of space. Keir Starmer is light years ahead of the incompetents -pity he has to put up with the lying conniving Eton pond life.

There will be no deal. Brexiteers will blame the EU for failing to capitulate to their demands and exonerate themselves of all blame.
