Sure what are they going to do! Farcical. The general public again being shown up as idiots
It's been mentioned in the press they are lined up to help out from tomorrow morning. Don't think they'll need their guns to man telephone lines and provide other logistical help. Many member of the defence forces have skills that will be very useful in these circumstances, and their skills are much better being put into use than hanging round barracks and/or self-isolating

I posted this last night but i think it was lost but is it not odd that only 20% on the princess cruise tested postive even though more than likely more than 80% to 90% should have been. It was rampant on it.

I certainly do wonder - there must be something very wrong in the US financial plumbing (repos have also rampes up like crazy).
The repo market has been skating on thin ice for months

I feel really lucky to have started a new job in January. My partner is a chef and out of work from tomorrow. If both of us were out of work, we would not be able to pay the rent.

I'm working from home now. IT industry.

Mod: This thread was going to pass 10k overnight, so I've started Thread VIII early. No point in making the hamsters sick too.
