    You have evidence of that ?

    I just want to start work again. It's a job I really enjoy. But I may be losing it at the end of July as my line of work is the last to start again- if at all for some considerable period of time.

    How I'm going to find another job in any reasonable time is beyond me. It took months to get this one.

    So it's no joy. Actually, I've been utterly depressed at times.

    Loads of people go back on June 15th. I stay here with the four walls.
    I'm still on 100% income but working at home and finding it quite difficult. I have neither the mobility, the assumption of invulnerability of the youth nor the sense of entitlement of a Cummings to find this pleasurable. I think we have the right to comment dismissively only on our own elevated circumstances, if our circumstances are elevated, in this situation. Otherwise, for the nature of my reply to the dismissive, see Pressdram vs Arkell.

      Correct, The North Korean Rungrado May Day Stadium in Pyongyang is largest. It holds somewhere between 114000 and 150000 people depending on who you believe.
      well wouldnt beleive anyone from North Korea, so should be struck out.

      interesting looking up the largest stadiums, top 10 filled mostly by college American Football stadiums, over 100k capacities. who'd have thought.
      The English know how to make the best of things. Their so-called muddling through is simply skill at dealing with the inevitable.

      I work from home but genuinely WORK.....if your furloughed you should be doing something constructive not sitting on your arse watching daytime TV, you never going to get this much paid leave again.
      You do if you retired on a decent pension

      Well, if you had a team that a lot of people wanted to watch and you didn't even have to pay the players (officially, anyway) wouldn't you want 100k paying customers per game? Kerching!

      There's a reason the Clemson Tigers could afford to throw money at a mini golf course to keep a player happy.

      4pm is hardly daytime tv. I go to work about 4.30am and get home about 3.00 - 3.30 ish. That time is approaching teatime for me. Its time for a cuppa and Minder or Salvage Hunters or Tipping Point or the daily government briefing! I guess if you are not starting work at home until 9.00 - 10.00 then you are probably still working at 4.00pm. I couldn't give a toss about people sitting at home doing nothing on 80% money apart from when they start on about how desperate they are FOR A HOLIDAY!!!

      A few people I know have indicated very much that......similarly those working from home are hoping they can do so for as long as possible - but also conscious not everyone will feel the same. Hope things work out.
