Makes our 25% cuts look quite mild.

Loads of businesses doing the same thing to their employees. Companies don't have the cash to pay their staff and The Government haven't said how they qualify for or when they can get, the grants to pay their staff the promised 80% of salaries. It was a half baked promise that made a great headline but no meat on the bones as to how it will work. HMRC says the system should be in place by late April, for comanies with no cash coming in that is too long, for staff with no income that is a disaster.

It was not "half baked" - it will happen - these things do take time and the government cannot work miracles. It is very hard for people but it will happen as soon as humanly possible

I think you may find that time is a luxury the government do not have.

I would be interested to hear your answer to the problem.

Not necessarily advocating it but the USA are apparently going to pay $1200 to each household with an income less than 75K. On the other hand they are making a complete mess of dealing with the medical aspect of the problem.

Insist that all companies pay their staff 80% of their salary rather than requesting them to do so. Guarantee firms grants or loans via the banks to finance their wage bill. The Banks have been given the money by BOE to assist companies but some are choosing not to take up the offer and are "laying off" staff instead of "furloughing" them. The Government's intention is laudable but the means of delivery has been made far to vague and too complex, hence half baked. How many people on minimum wage can wait until the end of April for some income?

Some people are simply never satisfied and will find an excuse to complain about anything
