There are competing interests at stake , the economy versus health , to fund the Health System you require a functioning economy there is little doubt that a second round of the virus will appear as the easing of lockdown takes place

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announces changes to social-distancing measures in the UK but immediately faces a backlash from the Opposition and Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland over the new messaging.

Mini-Trump is proving an appallingly bad leader. Nobody was prepared for him releasing us from lockdown, Nicola Sturgeon (Scottish leader) learned of it on the news.

Employers and employees had no idea they were being told to go back to work on Monday morning (less than 12 hours after the broadcast!) - and the 50 page detail wasn't  out until 2.00pm on Monday!

And its riddled with errors - meet your parents - but only one of them, not both together!

This is another of those Russians attempting to interfere with our democracy:

IF the economy can not be refloated then there is looming the possibility of a violent reaction as people will not receive benefits and institutions will collapse you would have the recipe for anarchy

Always possible but I suspect that doom scenario will be avoided. However I'll be keeping my eye on police and military recruitment figures.

If there is a 2nd wave as predicted and a longer lock down is put into place , then more jobs will be lost , entire industries are going vanish, Pubs / Clubs / Travel Agents / Many Retailers are almost on the wall now / how can the fashion business cope with millions of garments seasonally wrong waiting to be shipped or delivered to stores not able to open  / who will feel safe for the near future in a restaurants ?

It does not take more than an hungry group of people to ignite things , I will guess deep in the bowels of Whitehall there are many a scenario being mulled over .

Dont reckon seeing Mrs.Queen for the next few months either , she is more than likely locked in her bank vaults (Coutts )
