    Those children spent their teenage years growing up through WW2. After the war, for some reason he took his family on holiday to Spain (Franco's Spain). I still have the photo books from after my mother's death some 20 years ago! They looked so happy and adventurous! I wonder what you are contemplating after this virus is declared over. I cannot see the world being the same again. This virus may morph. Individuals, Families, Insurance and Finance companies and all businesses (including LFC) will need to reassess their position in the world. This virus may return maybe this year, next year, 5 years or beyond? Let us assume/hope that is declared over some time next year - what will you decide to do for a holiday ?

    This will hopefully mean that good deals will be available for people who survive.

    .. Just responding to previous posts, Noods. I'm of an age, with underlying health issues, that I'm probably one of the sick and elderly myself!

    She's already suggested if im out of work for a while when everything gets back to normal I can keep working and she'll go on holiday with my 2 girls.
    Just found out that this afternoon we're going on short time (2.5 days a week) in two weeks time.
    My good lady has no clue when she'll (teacher) be going back to work but we're lucky that's she's from Cádiz in South Spain and can go there for a cheap few weeks holidays whenever Spain opens up again.
    So it's not all bad and we'll use our time off work productively no doubt....

    On the other hand, some of our friends have lost their jobs already so it's easier to feel sorry for them.

    Not good at all mate, It's the uncertainty of it all that's the concern plus the fact someone close could very well become infected.

    There's nothing wrong with holidaying on our own shores, however the world is populated by selfish so and so's who are unwilling to give up their luxuries (even if just temporarily) for 'the greater good'. This is in evidence right now as many people continue as if nothing serious is currently occurring, which is putting others, namely the less well off and most vulnerable members of society at risk. Many of the former are actually becoming even more selfish than usual e.g. stockpiling. It seems many people's self interests have very few, if any limits.

    This would be bad enough on its own, but then you get some of these same people condemning others or lecturing them on what is (in their opinion) right or wrong. It seems in many cases hypocrisy also has no limits.

    Total madness
    Yesterday many people in the uk going about the day as if nothing happened.

    Even more shopping/ stocking up
    Supermarket trade up 20% on xmas trade!
    Women supermarket Employees being told to Foff C!

    Wow what a selfish egotistical world we are living in.
