Purely out of curiosity. I don't care how long my cabs take to come. I am just wondering if anyone knows if Martin is still moving about?

Just wondering how people are getting along with cabs being in limbo between owners?

He picked up a cab from me last week so he was still around last week - but based on everything going on at the moment I guess we need to take things a week at a time at the moment!

Not if he is sensible ! Its time to stay in and wait it out , Those who choose to go out when they don't need to are just making things worse !!!!

There are police checks going on now so unless he can prove the delivery of an asteroids is essential he will be fined.
Better to get it over and done now than drag it out for months and months.

A month or more with no income will destroy some people - I think this needs to be sorted as a priority.

Self employed people aren't part of the 80% wages so far. So if Martin isn't working then I'd imagine Martin isn't able to pay his mortgage

Needs fast tracking.

You can freeze you mortgage for 3 months as well.

If it is necessary (only shops (because of crowds) have to shut that are not "essential" ) and you can not do it from home - it is allowed.

I could be wrong, and not here to argue,  Many news sites are in fact mis quoting what Boris said.

You can go out for food/medicine, once a day to exercise, to check on vulnerable people and for essential work.

That's it, anything else can be fined or what not.

I'm self employed, talk of £98 a week, jesus that's half a day's wages I would be screwed.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I am blaming you.

Is the same available for:

Van payment
Gas
Electric
Food shopping
Council tax
Phone line
Broadband
Mobile phone bill
Water rates

Etc. Because the £98 a week the self employed can currently apply for would just about cover my gas, electric and council tax.

FWIW I’m not saying Martin should be working. Just that the government aren’t exactly making it easy for people to abide by the lockdown

I think people are maybe confused because..
The word necessary is so open, it does need more clarification.   
If I wish to buy a car today, it would be nessasary for a car garage to be open.   Now I know it doesn't mean that, but just saying... its unclear and businesses are struggling to understand.

Sports direct want to open because it is essential to provide trainers to al the new runners!
Its a non-essential retail shop.

I work on the technical side of ITN News at Ten. So I am still allowed in London to get the news on air every night. But I still think more needs to be done here as it is still too busy on public transport and people wandering around with no purpose. Really hoping it's just London though an not the rest of the UK.

Anyway maybe best to close this as it is going to get rather political otherwise. Just wondered if anyone had any contact with Martin. 

Hope everyone is doing ok and staying as safe as possible. It will get better.

Erm, last week Boris implied he'd shaken hands with Coronavirus patients, then he talked about 'herd immunity' (coz we're all sheeples), then that it'd blow over in 12 weeks and we should take it on the chin, then he said that there was no need for a lockdown. Now we have a partial lockdown. My guess is that big cities will see an even tighter clampdown later in the week.

Don't waste your time trying to find 'loopholes' in the rules, they'll chage soon anyway. Just be sensible and stay safe. Being hygeinic and staying away from other people as much as possible is all you can do.

That's exactly it.  The issue is the ambiguity with the word "essential" or "absolutely necessary" to which Gove on Radio4 this morning fumbled trying to clarify.

The other issue is that employers have seized on it to declare that anyone that can't work remotely is now carrying out work that is "essential".

Building sites, plumbers, electricians etc are apparently all allowed to work.  My work deems my job as essential enough to carry on, which believe it or not involves visiting 3+ doctors surgeries/hospitals a day (can you even think of any better way than that to spread a virus?)

The issue with the government is the lack of proper guidelines.  For example how is my partner's school supposed to function when they're on the verge of bankruptcy, having to lay off 12 staff (from a pool of 40), and yet as of this morning they had no idea how many children of key workers they would receive or how many staff they would require.
To top it all off, they were broken into at the weekend and all of the food out of 4 industrial freezers was stolen. 
No government guidance or assistance for them.
Welcome to bonus stage.
