What could possibly go wrong.

They tell us all to stay home, save lives & protect the NHS & then they effectively say "but if you ignore all that, go out socialising with your mates & go to a party with up to 13 other people, we'll reward you with £500 each when you get sick". And I thought that Dominic Cummings was bad!!! :o

Totally nuts. They need to make employers like mine, pay you if you have to go off and isolate, not suffer 10 days without pay.

Your employer didn't pay you? You were at work when you got exposed, for crying out loud. You're putting your life on the line every day for them, driving the buses. How DARE they shirk their responsibility to you.

Absolutely, Icemaiden. These companies are really taking the Michael.

Did you see the police busted a party of about 100 people yesterday? I forget where, but it doesn't matter. I'd have been tempted to lock the doors on them.

People getting angry, doesn't bode well.

And for the self-employed, it’s another version of the same problem. Apparently you’re not entitled to payments if in low-paid work but not on benefits.
