Coronavirus: Do you still get paid if you have to self-isolate?

If the answer is NO, it will show just how fragil peoples savings are. They say that people are two pay packets away from destitution.
If the answer is YES, the UK will come to a stop with sickies being pulled.

New UK coronavirus cases confirmed as two people test positive for Covid-19 after infection 'passed on in Italy and Tenerife'

From the time they arrived back in the UK until they were found to be infected, how many other people did they meet and unknowingly pass this virus on? Even the medical infection teams cannot find these people, they are so random, they could be anywhere now.

"Coronavirus: Will I get paid if I self-isolate"?

Will you get paid if you catch it and die?. There really some mindless headlines in the papers these days.

When it was voted against in parliament there was a wedding going on which stopped those who wanted to vote for discipline to continue could get to commons , due to road closures.
I was slippered as a child at school. Following this I never put a foot wrong again. This was in 60's.
At my school both boys and girls got it on the bottom. It was more shame and embarrassment that taught me rather than a sore bum.
Do I think it should be brought back? Yes as an ultimate final sanction.

Hacked mum

You my friend are not alone. My eldest is a teenager and I’m sick of this after 10 years of it. Women who think their shit don’t stink. Frankly when their children leave school they will be left with a vacuum in their lives to match their empty personalities.

I have tried reporting this type of behaviour to the store but the response is inevitably one of reluctance to get involved. I can even understand this - who wants to get into an angry confrontation with (usually) a rough and mean spirited individual?

My ideal solution would be to carry around with me a supply of large, ultra-sticky labels, one of which could be fixed firmly to the offender's windscreen, right in their line of vision! These labels would be purposely designed to be almost impossible to peel off cleanly, so the driver would have to spend a very long time with a bucket of hot water and a scraper, in full view of shoppers.

And the label could read 'Inconsiderate Moron', perhaps?

Of course, actually taking this action would be deemed illegal...

So Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty on some charges. Didn't his "victims" gain financially by being given lucrative roles in his films?

Isn't there a word for women who gain financially by "sleeping" with men?

I have had a similar experience. There’s a thing where when you come to a new place people have busy lives and it’s easier to break in with foreigners as you’re in the same boat. However, I would say that other cultures are more open, India is much warmer in my experience. Ireland too but not by a lot, we’re pretty insular, we’re just more chatty. Have found other cultures more closed though (Stockholm is ridiculous). Having said that I like the privacy I have in England, feel like I can do whatever I want and no one cares. It’s not like that in Ireland or India.
