My friend who works at M&S alerted me about this, which (as far as I can see) hasn't been publicised at all:
https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2020/04/ms-staff-pay-rise-full-pay-furlough-plastic-face-shields/

Furloughing is voluntary - M&S staff on furlough will get 100% pay (rather than 80%) and shop floor workers who stay get a 15% pay rise.

I wish people wouldn't misunderstand the threat that is Dominic Cummings. The man's a psychopath, who would be the first to tell you that he's not smart and that you'd be an idiot for believing he is.

He has won every campaign he has been involved in.

It is rich that Maitlis is embedded in privilege and has used her time on the BBC largely to entrench that privilege. There's more than an ambivalence to hearing her say stuff like this, there is a sort of sick feeling like your own identity has been robbed and paraded around by an imposter.

Oh dear. Has Yesno failed the ideological purity test? And he thought he was being right on in posting that link (for what it's worth, I enjoyed it, in a righteous sort of way).

Re: the FT. It's always had a reserve of left-leaning writers happy to endorse socialist policy. There even a bloke a few years back banging on about Marx and why we all need to revisit him. It's not as if they're suddenly stepping out of character by promoting public sector investment.

By the way, another thing that rubs me up the wrong way is this 'ideological purity' bollocks. I understand the scepticism here and I'd never accuse you lot of that. I'm advocating the opportunism of celebrating and amplifying the messages we want to hear. It's what our enemies do and it works.

Implies she loves the principle that landlords can put the rent up otherwise. I bet when she finds her utility bills going up she applauds the private companies for doing the right thing.

Tell me, how does that principle work in London? Even the most libertarian do-it-yourself turdgrave is presumably aware that rent is prohibitively and exorbitantly high there.

The New Zealand PM, her Ministers, and CEO's of top government agencies have just agreed to take a 20% pay cut for the next six months in solidarity with the rest of the country.

The government of New Zealand has done a lot better than the UK government at tackling the coronavirus.

Will Johnson and his ministers follow New Zealand's lead and take a 20% pay cut for the next six months?

The president of France, a country which has done better than the UK at tacking the coronavirus, has apologised on national TV for France not being prepared according to Jeremey Vine.

Will Johnson and his ministers do the same?

Should be 20% of the cabinet guillotine themselves to make a point. If they did that, I'd actually say fair play. As long as it's the top 20% just saying look, we know loads of your friends and family members are dead, we're gonna get the guillotine out of the London Dungeon and start chopping heads like my mutha fucka ODB and we're all gonna die for our sins. I'd say fair play and I'd clap.

I don't think we should actually chop anybody's heads off, we should just put guillotines outside all of their doors to keep them in line. And sing the chop chop song (music and lyrics to be written later, or we'll just get the chorus to 'feel them out'). Oh also we'll get Thomas to blow some of them up.

Also it's no fun when a guillotining is consensual.

Healthcare workers in the Netherlands are to receive a cash bonus to recognise their efforts in fighting Covid-19, Dutch finance minister Wopke Hoekstra revealed on Tuesday.

While it’s nice to see people recognising the efforts of doctors and nurses fighting to save lives, Wopke Hoekstra said the universal gratitude must be expressed in a more tangible way, not just in the form of applause - a reference to the current trend in countries like the Netherlands and the UK for people to go outside to clap in a public display of appreciation for staff involved in battling the pandemic.

The idea of showing support with a financial reward was first discussed in the Dutch parliament a month ago. Politicians are now working out how much it will be and when the bonus be paid to those on the front line...

A pay rise would be better than a cash bonus,but even that is more than politicians in the UK are offering.

Coronavirus: Comic book writer chronicles village's virus 'fightback' (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-south-scotland-52707072)

Quote
A comic book writer is helping a village mount a "fightback" against the economic impact of the coronavirus.

Alan Grant - who is known for his work on Judge Dredd and Batman - lives in Moniaive, in Dumfries and Galloway.

He has helped dozens of local residents to produce their own comic chronicling their struggles with Covid-19.

It is being sold to help generate funds for Revitalise Moniaive, which was set up to sustain businesses and boost the village's economy.

...

The result - produced with the input of dozens of residents - tells the story of how the "amazing wee village" has pulled together at a time of crisis...

The US state of New Jersey has agreed to raise taxes on millionaires, while also approving a rebate for lower and middle-class families.

The state's governor, Phil Murphy, announced on Thursday that the state tax rate on earnings over $1m (£770,000) would increase from 8.97% to 10.75%. Around 800,000 families who earn more modest sums will also receive a tax rebate of up to $500.

While Governor Murphy had tried to raise taxes on the wealthy before, he said the spread of coronavirus had made the changes more urgent.

Imagine if the UK did this. Oh no we won't because the people in power are mates with the millionaires.

In an interview with Billboard, the singer-songwriter also voiced her support for the Black Lives Matter movement, and addressed the wave of anti-racism and anti-police brutality protests that occurred in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.

“I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen,” Parton said. “Of course, Black lives matter. Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!”

Back in 2018, the artist, who is known for hits including “Jolene” and “9 to 5”, renamed the Civil War-themed attraction from “Dixie Stampede” to “Dolly Parton’s Stampede”.

“When they said ‘Dixie’ was an offensive word, I thought, ‘Well, I don’t want to offend anybody. This is a business. We’ll just call it The Stampede,” she said. “As soon as you realise that [something] is a problem, you should fix it. Don’t be a dumbass. That’s where my heart is. I would never dream of hurting anybody on purpose.”

I've never had any strong feelings about her either way, I know she's very business orientated. But she doesn't seem like an awful racist.

never said she was. but a civil war themed attraction is dodgy as fuck. anyway, I just think she's a ruthless capitalist, so I don't quite understand all the praise.

probably not best to "stan" her but she does try her best as a millionaire. she also just told Tennessee not to put up a statue of her while she's a alive which says something

also she wrote Jolene and I Will Always Love you in the same afternoon. I mean when inspiration strikes and all that

Companies don't care and the unions don't really have enough power, although airlines seem to be still requiring masks which is good.

Young cathedral choristers in Truro, Cornwall, have raised funds for 10,000 Covid-19 vaccines in poorer countries with a singing project.

The singers were able to raise £8,434 for Unicef with the Sing2G7 project, which saw children and young people around the world send a musical message to G7 leaders ahead of the summit in June.

The project inspired more than 27,000 children in 31 countries to take part, with the Sing2G7 organisers and choristers deciding to give all of the royalties from their single to VaccinAid...

So anti-vaxxers have demanded a boycott of Morrissons.

So Morrisons have encouraged the boycott as it makes them the safest supermarket to shop in.

Be surprised if that's legal. And the private equity vultures about to buy them will be pleased with precedent for cutting sick pay if it's your own fault.

I do like the idea of an anti-vax prick free zone though.

Doesn't actually say what they are going to do.

I wonder- where I work you have to be off sick for three days before you get any sick pay. When covid happened, for a while, at least, if you were off because you had to isolate then you wouldn't have to wait the 3 days.

I wonder if it is a similar set up at Morrisons and they are re-instating the three days for the non vaccinated.

But that is just speculation.

Not sure what I think about this either.
