Doe anyone know if ROI is planning to announce similar financial package(80%) similar to uk?

Loads of talk on Sunday about it (75%) , havenít heard anything since but in their defence they said it would be finalised by wed/thurs .

Doesnít matter to those of us building essential yuppie housing though .

Thanks. Yeah that seems to be a problem. Would you be eligible for SSP?

Definitely a notable difference today. Maybe the message is getting through. Got a letter from employer to say that I'm a key worker (healthcare). Others should get the same for using at checkpoints.
I'm one too and I don't know many who aren't at this stage.

I know lads working in Finance IT who are getting the same letters.

Companies need to f**k off. If you're not involved in the food or medical supply chain, you're not "essential"

I am hearing off licences open in some places? Is this true?

Is the 80% in UK finalised? When does it kick into action?

Also companies need to wise up and spend some money on a remote work infrastructure and do it now as if there is a load of taking the piss and this thing isn't got under any form of control then they'll just be shut.(which is obviously the lowest concern here I know but businesses can be kept going if they stop being dicks - finance/IT are not notorious for trusting their staff)

I'm talking Morgen Stanley here. This lad is a director who can work from home any time he wants without an eyelid being batted. Company are furnishing everyone with these letters about how they're a Global Systemically Important Financial Institution blah blah blah. All of which is true, but irrelevant.

These docs aren't worth the paper they're written on from a legal perspective. If you can work from home, you should be working from home. Not f**king taking a packed Tube into Canary Wharf. The arrogance of these crowds is breathtaking.

Yep agreed.

 It has become very clear over the past few weeks who the real critical workers are and it's mostly not the people who think they are.

Trump is going to open the US up again in the next few days because he doesn't want China to be going while the US are not . . . it's going to be a disaster!!

Lidil are open, as is tesco and our local is closed but will deliver for orders over £50

if you are into wines, Portugal Vine yards is a great site. use them all the time, 12 bottles of Porta 6 (great wine) for 60 euro, delivered. but they have hundreds of choices

Chill off licences  in Derry  are selling milk , beans,  bread etc  so as to come under the  the umbrella of essential services and stay open. Saw  a photo of it last night. Milk next to the chardonnay.
