In Chicago 25 people are killed and 85 injured by gunfire in a three day period, including 18 killed in a single day. Even worse all of the pubs are shut.
The St. Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929 during Prohibition perhaps? No 29th-31st May 2020 in C19 / BLM world. So things could be worse.
A lot of things are untouchable here as well though - door handles, hard surfaces, people etc., though there are special exemptions currently for statues and police horses.
Stop press - it has just been announced tonight that a limited amount of people touching will be allowed as from Saturday.
A rise in people's temperatures and a spike in the birth rate in nine months time has been predicted by Sage and lets face it you need that for a good stuffing don't you?
Prohibition was of course widely ignored by the general public in USA but managed to last for 13 years. A cheery thought when we have only done three months. So far.
C19 Song Of The Day
Tonight's is from Stuart Horrocks and it is 'Seven Rooms Of Gloom' by The Four Tops.
That is sadly an appropriate description of Nellie's in Beverley recently, whereas normally the rooms are full of the sound of merriment and Humphrey Smith telling people to stop using their mobiles.
C19 Support Shorts
As mentioned yesterday employees must have been furloughed by today if they are to be furloughed at any future point up to the end of the scheme in October.
An exception to that has been announced where an employee finishes a period of maternity or paternity leave and that is the reason they have not been furloughed previously. Provided that is the employer has furloughed at least one other person.
They always make it nice and simple.
