And God said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?” And the Lord said, “What have you done? Listen; your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground! And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you till the ground, it will no longer yield to you its strength; you will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.”

Yes, probably the only country in the world who did worse than us!

Don't worry, we're working hard to steal that coveted bottom place. If Covid doesn't get us there, Brexit will.

Lord Sugar on LBC telling people to get back to work. Easy to say that when you have your own office. I presume Sugar doesn't get public transport to work each day.

Sugar ignores that many people are working from home and answering these "questions and answers", whatever they are, remotely.
In other news:

he's braindead, look at the phrase "questions and answers that we have to answer". Answering answers. He's thick as pig shit and I would beat the living crap out of him if I had the chance.

This should have always been the policy. I get some people are struggling due to space etc but a lot of people have been dragged into an office when they didn't want to and didn't need to; causing those that need to be there to get ill along with everyone. It is pretty clear that workplaces are not staggering timings either so we still have a rush hour.

Super waffly new restrictions in the Guardian now. Apparently the covid adheres to curfews and knows to go after the 16th person attending a wedding.

My university will use the loophole that we are a 'covid safe' campus to keep us open (Mr Attila doesn't believe me,,,but there's to be 'an announcement' following the PM's new dictat from the VC this afternoon). The VC keeps insisting that we are a 'covid-free' and a covid-safe campus -- despite classrooms where you can't open windows, shiny new hand sanitiser boxes that have nothing in them, students already reporting that they have to self-isolate (and we're only 2 days into the semester).

On the plus side, I guess that means at least the trains I have to take will be deserted, if Monday was any indication.

Working & even teaching from home, I have got so much done - no worry about the commute, no 4 hours wasted out of my day on the commute, so much savings...just going to campus Monday, that was four hours eaten out of the day to teach for 45 minutes.

Least surprising U-turn ever

A basic admission it wasn't just young people at raves.

I know we can't hurt Bezos, Zuckerberg etc but it would be great if commercial and residential land barons had to sell some of their properties to make ends meet.

'Work from home if you can'. Sensible and long overdue, and should have always been the case until we're out of the woods.
