Does the end game justify the economic and associated health costs that have/will inevitably come? I'm not doubting that lives have been saved but the whole country didn't need to be locked down in order to achieve this. We are in dangerous times and it has been piss easy for governments to lock everyone away. How long is too long? Can this go on forever, in theory?
Dead and sick people don't produce economic activity, granted. But neither do the unemployed and I would suggest paying millions of people to sit at home on furlough has limited positive economic effect either. The virus barely causes as much as a sniffle amongst the overwhelming majority of the working age population. This was apparent very early on.
Gave up after the fifth organisation as I thought I was spreading myself too thin in case they all needed help at once. The offer of help is there from my end should I get benched again. Happy to chat over P.M if you are needing help. The best wishes are appreciated. It's been an absolute shitter of a time and I would suggest the millions in my position aren't allowed to speak out. When I got the call on Thursday I genuinely thought I was away to get the dunt. The furlough money has helped. I'll give the government that. There's a lot worse off than me so I'll count my blessings. I can see mental health services being overwhelmed by the end of the year once the darker nights roll in.
