  1. Most of the charity I work for are furloughed as of tomorrow with the exception of a the frontline care staff and management (so far). I’ve actually been told that, in the pecking order, I’m right near the top because I have to keep our website and social media going. No sitting round enjoying Netflix or playing on my Xbox for the next 3+ weeks.

    I’m signed up. Looking forward to seeing what it has to offer.
  3. My heart is breaking right now and I’m in absolute bits. I have to take Ming to be put to sleep later today. He’s been my best friend for 16 years and got me through a lot. I’m devastated.

    The BBC was the only news channel that was reporting it and that was word of mouth from 2 officials talking to Andrew Benson rather than an official statement. The FIA didn't make the official announcement until I just mentioned. Therefore, Lion's statement about wondering whether Vettel (Ferrari) and Raikkonen made the decision to leave before or after the statement was my point - it was before.

    Finally the FIA have cancelled the Australian GP - https://www.fia.com/news/fia-formula-1-and-australian-grand-prix-corporation-joint-statement @Lion_of_the_Midlands Decision literally just came through. Vettel and Raikkonen left hours ago.

    @Lion_of_the_Midlands Didn’t you read that Vettel is on his way home? He drives for Ferrari by the way. So what do Ferrari have to gain from the FIA being total dicks in this situation?

    🙄 Never heard that before. You need new material.

    @Lion_of_the_Midlands I know that, you know that, 99.99% of fans know that. But where are the bloody FIA in all this? If the premiere is worried about crowds of people together then why are literally thousands currently standing outside the gates waiting to go in? The FIA should have madd a decision before these people even woke up this morning.

    Well, the Australian GP is turning into a shit pit... Some FIA senior officials told the BBC last night (Oz time) the race is off. McLaren have already pulled out. Raikkonen and Vettel have flown back to Europe. People are turning up at the circuit, queuing to get in and have just been told that the premiere of Victoria has announced it’ll be a closed race. And still no official announcement one way or another from the FIA. And Arsenal’s Head Cough has tested positive too. 😆 I’m leaving that typo right there.

    Covid-19 Megathread

    We’ve now been segregated at work - those who work in direct contact with the children and families we support (it’s a hospice) who are on one side of the building and all non-care staff on the other side of the building. The coffee machine is in No Man’s Land though so I’m not sure how that’s going to work out. The building is covered in signs like ‘Please wash your hands’, ‘Have you washed your hands?’, ‘Wash your damn hands!’, ‘Wash.Hands!’, ‘HANDS!!!’ I think it’s only a matter of time before we’re all issues with hazmat suits.

    I work in a hospice and we’re having problems ordering hand sanitiser. Even the NHS supplier has run out and apparently there’s a 3-month waiting list!
  13. You are all absolutely amazing people ❤️ The donations are now at £300 already. I don't know if anyone wants to share the link on Twitter with the wrestling group he was affiliated with? Happy birthday, Chris.
  14. Just an addition to this thread... According To his profile, tomorrow would have been his birthday. (the dates are Americanised)
  15. Ok, so I set this up on JustGiving. I thought it was more transparent so people can see the exact total and stuff. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/cau
