|Knife attack in France|
at 12:22 4 Apr 2020
2 confirmed deaths and several injured in a knife attack in France today. As if there isn't enough to worry for the authorities and the general public to worry about.

Living in France, we are only allowed out to do the essentials, food shopping etc.
I am sure that the UK will be on a similar lockdown in a weeks time at the latest. My advice would be:
1) Stock up on materials to do DIY at home and in the garden. We were told at 8pm on Monday and all the builders merchants / DIY shops were closed on Tuesday. If the lockdown happens, you will be confined for an absolute minimum of 2 weeks, but probably 4 weeks, with the potential to go on for at least 3 months. You will need something to do (if you can't work from home) and this is the perfect time to do those little chores that you have been putting off for months / years.
2) Don't panic buy. The shops here have had more or less everything.....occasionally the odd item might not be available. According to news report, supplies haven't been a problem in Italy either.
|Insurance companies not paying out for coronavirus|

I have just been reading up on Business Interruption insurance and it appears that if the UK goes on lockdown, like many other countries, Business Interruption Insurance WON'T pay out to businesses who are forced to close.
|Question about enforced closures.....|
at 21:10 14 Mar 2020
If a lockdown occurs and only essential businesses are allowed to remain open, what happens about pay for staff who aren't allowed to go to work?
Obviously the government announced earlier in the week that if you had symptons of the virus, you need to self-isolate for 1 week and you would receive the statutory sick pay from day one. So if the government forces shops, offices, bars, restaurants etc to close, does the employer still have to pay their staff their full daily wage?

How long will Sky tv be able to survive if all major sporting events are cancelled?
Could this mean the end to the farcical sums of money being thrown into the elite ends of sport (Premier League etc)?
|Armed police at Ipswich Borough Council offices|

According to the EADT website there are armed police at Ipswich Borough Council's offices, following reports of an incident at 2.40pm. Anyone on here in that area?

I live in Normandy and my 18 year old daughter has been told she can't attend "college" this week, because we went on holiday to Portugal two weeks ago. Her twin brother at a different school didn't get told to stay away and neither did my 16 year old daughter, who is at another school.
I believe 4 Brits returned home from the French Alps a couple of weeks ago with the virus and this morning there has been 9 cases confirmed in Morbihan, Brittany, which is only around 100 miles from where we live. Yet the advice that this school is giving out is if you have been on holiday anywhere outside of France, then you can't go to school for 2 weeks, yet if you have been skiing in the French Alps, or on holiday in Brittany, that is fine.
Whilst I can understand the arguments for trying to keep "person to person" contamination at a minimum, surely it needs to be organised better than this?
Has any TWTD's experienced any restrictions yet?

Back over for my 1st match of 2020 tomorrow. Really looking forward to it and hoping we will put on a decent performance after Tuesday nights shambles. Plus the added bonus of a few beers in Arcade Tavern before the match and plenty more after.
What's the expected crowd tomorrow?

He has got his wish now, with less matches to play than most of the teams around us in the league, plus a decent (on paper) squad that should more than match our rivals.
Now results and performances have to start improving.
The players and management should hang their heads in shame at losing to a league 2 reserve team.
|Terrible league....may give us half a chance.|
at 17:27 26 Dec 2019
I've just had a look at the form table for the last 5 matches.
The top 5 teams have only won 8 matches out of 25 in this league, compare that with the Premier League where the top 2 have won that many in 10 matches...….or the top 5 have won 16 out of 25.
|Premier League, you're killing our game|

Shows the massive gulf in football when Spuds pay off for sacking their manager is reportedly 2/3rds of Ipswich's turnover for the year.
The Premier League is ruining our football with it's (and player / agent) greed.
|FAO anyone driving to France this week|
at 19:16 1 Dec 2019
They have started blocking the fuel depots in some areas, so some filling stations are limiting customers to 25 or 30 euros. Long queues have also been reported in certain regions.
|Online banking problems|
at 12:20 29 Nov 2019
I haven't been able to access my online NatWest business banking account, since around 09.00 UK time. Anyone else experiencing online banking problems today?
Black Friday causing an overload perhaps?
|Massive couple of weeks|
at 03:48 22 Nov 2019
5 matches against the top 5 teams.
I've not been a big fan of Lambert's selection / resting of players, especially over the last 3 weeks, but, if we are top at the end of this spell then I think we would all have to agree that he made the right choices.
