No aid for UK Airlines Or Airports amid Coronavirus crisis

The UK govt has decided against a blanket rescue package for its airlines or airports despite the impact of coronavirus on the aviation sector. Unlike other govts in Europe which are stepping in to rescue their flagships, the UK faces a complex set of choices. British Airways—which is owned by the Spanish airline group IAG—had previously argued against UK govt aid for embattled Flybe.

No help for the majority of us. Relief promises are lies. Business rates down to zero is an absolute lie. Councils still charging and refusing to budge. No wages relief. Councils are withholding the grant money they have and constantly moving the goalposts so they don't have to pay it out. The odd few are staying at home doing fuck all on 80% wages while most of us have no option but to go to work.
