Fingers crossed for you Si!

I was thinking more with my historians rather than economists hat on.

Shit, I hope things pan out OK for you.

Thanks both. My team if they want it continue are very much. needed. Me, I think I'm expected to stay on but not in any managerial capacity. Salary wise I may be the same or even better off if so.

We're looking at a 70% shrinkage in workforce.

Very lucky if what I understand is true. The uncertainty is where I fit in but I'll do ok

That's good to hear Si, hope that pans out the way you're hearing. Every time I feel like moaning about lockdown etc I remind myself I'm very fortunate to still be in work. And try not to think about the fact my contract only runs till October.

Some positive news. Or perhaps news of early indications of potential positive news

"The first human trial of a COVID-19 vaccine finds that it is safe, well-tolerated, and induces a rapid immune response. “These results represent an important milestone.”" https://bit.ly/2WUzNaJ

Typical of the metropolitan elite to think that the rules apply to others but not to them really, isn't it?

We can all kick up a stink about Cummings, but he’s not going to be kicked out of number 10 is he, no matter how badly he acted

If Johnson was bullet-proof, I'd see the point.  But I don't think he is any more.  I don't think that this is going to go away.

Starmer really seems to be turning the tables, yet he seems to be doing so with so little drama. Impressive considering the tories have such a majority.

He is far too intelligent for Johnson, and clearly a better politician. It’s good to see.

He'll just go back to being in the shadows a bit like a Diamond Mike or Standing/Barry

Cummings caught breaking lock-down rules.

Kuenssberg is on twitter defending him. Your licence fee pays her salary.
