Yeah a very small few who have a few hundred quid in their account would struggle. If anyone's in that position they're doing something badly wrong though and will need to rethink if their business is actually a business after this

True to a degree, but there's also a timing issue. If you work on staged payments for example you can be in the hole to five or six figures just before you get paid for a stage. A weather delay, problem with a supplier, people not turning in etc etc all add costs and are notoriously difficult to predict. Any or all of those happen just before the curtain was dropped and you cloud be in big trouble.

As @superspread said, I can think of a few times over the years where I'd be in deep sh1t if this happened at that point. I can guarantee under those circumstances with a choice between loosing everything and working at risk of getting or spreading the virus I wouldn't spend a second thinking about it.

My suspicion of fresh enquiries is that they had there


My suspicion of my fresh leads are that the customers had other spreads booked in that had rightly cancelled due to Corona virus and they were not happy to wait.

I honestly despair that people think that it is ok to ask a tradesman out into there homes at the moment for anything other than electrical and plumbing emergencies.

They are the same people that will be moaning if they had to go I to there work places!
Perhaps we should form a list members who are, shall we say, dispensable. One's we can afford to lose.
Maybe start a line, way over there to the left?

I was lead to believe scotland lockdown was "essential services only"

That's a different mandate to england "only travel to workplace if unable to work from home"
A myth. Wee have wee krankie as first minister. Shes got no real authority. She’s proven that in recent weeks. Having said that, she’s at least been seen on telly everyday unlike Boris.

You always sound like one of the moaning old ladies who used to write to the local newspapers to complain about stuff, disgusted from Dagenham.

I’m no fan of Krankie! she’s hellbent on independence and desperately wants all the Scots on her side, Therefore she needs to show some real leadership. I’d admire her if she did pull us out of lockdown but I’ll not hold my breath.
