Let’s hope the year of Covid does bring some changes for the good:

A four day week on full pay?

The Autonomy report believes four day working, properly arranged, is possible on full pay. It used profitability statistics drawn from a database of more 50,000 UK firms and simulated best- and worst-case scenarios regarding profit rates under a sudden imposition of a four-day week.  "By providing a hypothetical 'stress test', we can dispel any myths about the affordability of a four-day working week," said Mr Stronge.  "Any policy push will have to be carefully designed, and different strategies would need to be deployed for different industries," he said, adding that if it happened overnight, with no planning, most firms would still remain profitable.  "Covid-19 has thrown the world of work totally up in the air and we must take this opportunity to move away from the outdated and old ways of working," said Joe Ryle, a campaigner with the 4-Day Week Campaign.  "The four-day working week with no reduction in pay is good for the economy, good for workers and good for the environment. It's an idea whose time has come."  BBC

Simulated by professor Ferguson?

Now re read what you have put. Why do you think they have only 61 deaths? Because they take preventative action maybe? You don't have to wait til the hospitals are full or hundreds of people to die before you take action. The UK looks like a 5yo is in charge compared to Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Least they sound they know what they are doing! 22 new infections and schools are shut. We have 50k a day and ours are open. It should be the UK that has gone insane tbh!!!!!

You have typically swallowed the PCR testing scam, cases mean absolutely nothing because there is no effective test for covid. With respect, I don't need to read your link, as i get up to date information daily from family and friends living in Thailand. No one is sick, no one is dying, and they all know its a scam. Buriram province was locked down for two months without anyone in the province even being tested, they are just making it up as they go along. These measures are not about a virus, this is political opportunism from a hugely unpopular military regime.

Southern hemisphere countries  have mostly been unaffected by this because of their high levels of sunlight. The corrupt regime in Thailand is incapable of doing anything right, let alone fend off an airborne microbial virus...

A couple have apparently came across from NSW into Victoria recently with the virus and have been out and socialising. A few suburbs have all been told to test and isolate. The rest of us all have to wear masks again as of today and are not allowed out tonight on new years eve unless you have booked somewhere. 
 

pathetic.

had a brief thought the other night in the shower (as you do) regarding all these dubious rules and the number of different conspiricies - all that bothers me is the inconsistencies - but i thought about a bigger picture and this supposed 'great reset' we hear about. what if the supermarket restrictions earlier in the year (offers removed, restricted numbers/products etc allowed) and the government bringing them in again saying it's a fight against obesity, are all part of conditioning us to restrict what we buy and bring in a form of rationing and then blame it on brexit.

A reason could be linked to the climate change stuff, reducing waste etc, and releasing lurgy death figures that put the fear of dog up you and makes sure you do everything they say.

People were getting restless, fed up of tiers and lockdowns and not seeing family and friends, they start breaking the rules, so all of a sudden we get a more infectious strain.

Made me wonder anyway

I've already seen a few FB posts telling us about the huge surge in cases because the Government ALLOWED us to celebrate Xmas (a little bit). There is no doubt that some have swallowed the propaganda hook line and sinker. I still think it is now more about saving political face than a deliberate attempt to reset anything.

It's an interesting idea and would certainly work in knowledge based jobs. Not sure how it would work for roles which currently need a person, retail, hospitality, healthcare etc. I think it needs to come at the end of a complete overhaul of our economy and not at the beginning though.

For retail etc, there could be a move to four day and three day shifts.  Possibly the best way of making a boring job tolerable.

Although with internet shopping, retail needs to reinvent itself and diversify.

It it's about saving face surely they could have thrown some scientists or SAGE under the bus and said that these retards told us.

And the government look totally gullible themselves?

I don’t think so.

They’d make Chris Grayling look a genius.  :D
