    Yeah, same with Sports Direct. Don't these plonkers realise they have a duty of care to their staff? An actual legal duty?

    I suppose a socialist government would nationalise Wetherspoons and run it into the ground. They seem to like having people on the dole.

    No. Most businesses have taken a responsible approach with this crisis, and followed government guidance. Wetherspoons and Sport Direct have gone against government advice, putting their staff and customers at unnecessary risk. Its the height of irresponsibilty, so shame on their greediness.

    Hopefully, Tim will still have viable business so that he can employ people when the panic is over.

    Hopefully no one will want to work for him and no one will want to buy from him.

    They may well have no choice if they want to work when the panic is over.

    BTW, is Tim withholding money that the government has already given him?

    If not, people need to ask the bank if they need a lone. Wetherspoons is not a bank.

    Which sums capitalism up - this is what's left for you.take it or leave it.

    Capitalism fails in a crisis.

    We have politicians making promises but failing to deliver.

    They have failed to deliver for the self-employed as well.

    Who is paying them?

    Talking of socialism, how is Venezuela coping with the pandemic?

    90,000 farm workers needed. Here’s your chance to replace all those Eastern European’s who stole your jobs.

    That's good,now all they have to do is pay the right money to do the job instead of slave wages.

    So what you want is for the farmers to go bankrupt or food prices to increase considerably...

    Your choice

    The job pays what the job commands.

    Covid is a deadly dry run for brexit. Just as we're leaving one hell, January 1 will be looming.
