Subject: I can understand his emotions and fears, and he is entitled to choose not to return to training, but he can't then expect to get paid. He also needs to consider what can change to enable him to return to football. Coronavirus is not going away any time soon; and even if it did, there are still all sorts of infections in the community which are of equal, if not greater, danger to his young son. He is unfortunately facing the same dilemma as millions of other parents. I work for the police, and I sympathise with my colleagues out there on the streets or going into people's homes to restrain and arrest. Many of them have vulnerable family members and share Troy Deeney's fears, but they have continued to work. The harsh reality is that if a lot of people don't go back to work when the risks become reasonably low in their job, it will not take long before a substantial part of our population experiences serious poverty and consequent damage to mental and physical health - even death.

  • Taking a wider view, if we all don’t get back to work soon this country is fecked. Really really fecked. The job losses will be horrendous, house prices will crash, companies go bust, people will go hungry, Govt will not be able to borrow as Tax returns will be so low, private Pensions will tumble, state pensions will attacked,. We are in deep deep economic trouble, and everyone that is under (say 60, using data for most appropriate age) should go to work. If you have vulnerabilities, wait a bit, if you have vulnerable people in your house, think of an alternative if possible. Furlough will discontinue soon and people will be skint that never have been before.. Covid will not go away, just like aids or flu.The eastern nations will mop up our inability to function and take over quicker than already. That is speaking from someone who has had covid, and 6 weeks later still recovering but working from home. -- Glide, Friday, May 22, 01:07:30am (NoHost/94.190.198.45)
  • I am seventy two next month and am pre diabetic.I have also had two heart attacks and have been fitted with numerous stents.This despite having never smoked,driven a car or eaten much rubbish.My wife is a NHS medical secretary and is working from home.They are trying to pressure her into going in one day a week.She has refused.I wouldn’t expect anything else.One of my sons works for the NHS and has moved in with his brother.This brother is NEil who has posted above.He is a special needs teacher and cannot see his five year old daughter who has cystic fibrosis.Deeney is quite right to refuse and if he hasn’t got enough money to do so I would be very surprised.The whole world economy will be rubber ducked not just ours.Hopefully this pandemic will wake us up to the ridiculous way we live and bring some changes both in lifestyle and the financial order.

  • Many people have been going hungry since 2008. Many commentators say a 100000 died directly or indirectly because of Austerity. It just didn't effect you and me enough to make us fearful. Watch Adam Tooze on youtube and how he views the way the leaders in the western world have responded to Coronavirus. He says there is a reason that China and other eastern economies will lead the recovery. (NT) -- Juana Aorta, Friday, May 22, 04:38:08pm (host-92-19-0-241.as13285.net/92.19.0.241)
  • Yes but you survived, and this allows you to move your focus to the next threat. (NT) -- 'Common' Nick Dummings, Friday, May 22, 04:56:32pm (NoHost/85.255.234.237)
  • I am self employed and my industry is totally dead... probably won't come back until next year at the earliest. I've been applying for jobs for 2 weeks straight and can't get anything. Can't get the gov't help for self employed either at the moment because I am behind on submitting my tax return. Trying to get it sorted and hoping something will come through next week but am getting very desperate and have never signed on before. Just completed the form but they say I won't get anything until the end of June, and my guess is this will effect me getting the self employed help anyway...Im at the point now where even through the risks are there I have to take them... btw if anyone is hiring please get in contact!
