Covid 19 Black Book

We'll see some heroic and inspiring behaviour in the coming months.

These people should never be forgotten and their deeds should be praised and rewarded where possible. Unfortunately we'll never know who most of them are.

Sadly, we'll also see some reprehensible stuff from individuals and corporations.

These should never be forgotten either.

Whilst some will be more serious than others, they all need to be named and shamed.

Let's have your nominations for the black book.

I'll start -

Britannia Hotels

I don't believe that it was an admin error but, even if it was, it's still bad enough to rate a mention.

BT Sport

For making people sit on the phone for hours (and many will give up) to cancel/pause their subscriptions. Sky have had it on line for at least 24 hours. Easy.

Banks and Financial Institutions

For their tardiness in passing on interest rate reductions to mortgage payers. They almost all managed to pass on the last rate increase within 24 hours.

Richard Branson

No comment necessary. A 'national treasure' who is actually a parasitic disgrace.

Assuming I'm able, I'm planning to spend my retirement hounding these people and companies.

Jhoots Pharmacy Birmingham/West Midlands
Tim Martin/JD Weatherspoons

CHEERS (bar in Greenock and it's owner Ian Ellis). Refusing to close.

Billy Joe Saunders for services to feminism.

I utterly detest coffee shops
----------------------------------------------------------------------

All of them or just the large chains?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh large chains in general
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Because of the tax haven stuff or the taste of the coffee?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The whole pointless experience
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I'd rather buy a coffee in McDonald's
----------------------------------------------------------------------

McDonald's is shut

No loss although a shame for the workforce. Hope they get jobs soon in other areas of the retail sector.

So in Ottawa apparently at the grocery stores, cashiers are now behind Plexiglas and there is a set up to allow you to sanitize your trolley on the way in ..

Nothing wrong with setting up a trolley sanitising station in all shops

Adding Billy Joe Saunders to the list.

What an absolute nugget.

Not a great fan of the militant feminist brigade but I hope they take him down for that.

Not another penny should be paid to him.
