Well Q3 and Q4 will be important to watch.I happen to think it was as good as it could be. Business in particular was getting back to business a good deal earlier than the easing of public restrictions. For instance a major local housing developer was back to 80% productivity a good couple of weeks before pubs opened.
This anomaly is entirely due to the thick media, who only used pubs opening as the metric, whereas the government guidance and advice to businesses has been timely, comprehensive, sensible and helpful. And utterly un noticed by the media.
There are exceptions. The banks, charged with administering emergency business funding have been abysmal. As have DVSA who have been as much use as mudflaps on a tortoise. And others probably. On the whole though things are cracking on in the new normal.
Do you think you folks will have any sort of American style stimulus where the masses get a lump sump deposited in their accounts go fritter away?
