No more than two people can congregate in public but 100s of people can mix for nine hours a day in factories.

 

That bit confused me too. A gathering of greater than two people shuts our new build sites and stops a lot of our maintenance work too.

In two months time: "Hello there, Boris here, in this unprecedented time with a global pandemic still being fought, with the nuclear fallout from ex-President and current inmate at San Jose death row, Donald Trump who accidentally pushed the red button thinking he was getting Fox news instead, through to the invasion of the killer tripod aliens and their attempt to farm humans for their dietary nourishment, I once again call on everyone to stay calm and at home. Non-essential manufacturing workers can use our new interactive map which highlights radio active fallout hotspots, Covid-19 hazard areas as well as alien blindspots where their antennas can't smell human prey to plan their journey to work. Thank you."

LK: crystal clear guidelines.

FB (30 seconds later): now we will try and interpret what these guidelines mean.

Conflicting advice all over the place on who should be going to work in the morning. Why the fuck would you leave it til 8.30pm to put out such an announcement?

This was on the government Twitter feed which has now been disabled. As clear as mud and contradicting Johnson's speech.

We moved to laptops with hot desking two years ago so we've always been geared for WFH  (though we can use citrix through a pc as well). 

 

Not everybody is completely setup for home working though - I don't like laptops in general but obviously have fuck off monitors being a geek. 

 

Having said that we've now been offered monitors to be couriered if you want one - I suppose like anything wealth matters.

Because they didn’t decide to make it until 8:00pm

It's confusing Master T works for Royal Mail Delivery Office in North Shields. He's going to have to ring his boss in the morning to see if he's wanted in. 

 

Postal workers are on the "Key workers" list.

You should put the tomato on it, It does make a world of a difference.
