Rishi Sunak announces expansion of coronavirus job support scheme

Rishi Sunak has said the government will cover two-thirds of workers’ wages at businesses forced to close during new coronavirus lockdowns. The chancellor said the government would subsidise pay by providing grants to companies forced to shut – most likely pubs, bars and restaurants.

    They're the ones causing unemployment by closing down shops and workplaces and by imposing restrictions. They have already destroyed the people by destroying the economy. We need to stand as a public for our freedom. They need to stop talking about corona.
