Not at all. Just don't think the wording was particularly good, lockdown should have been the word used

Travelling to and from work, but only where this is absolutely necessary. 

 

If you have to travel to work, it seems to heavily indicate when the job is absolutely necessary.  Be it NHS, Fire Servies, Police, Tree Surgeon going out to fell a tree away to fall in on a house etc. 

 

Not to make a few quid.

We all could do with money from working but surely its best to do what's recommended. 

I think it's selfish to risk yourself and the wider public for the sake of a few trees.

Seriously though guys.... is it meant travel to work is ok if you can’t work from home....or is it essential work as in doctoring and the like...?

We are trying to figure this out... I am leaning towards the stay at home..

Is trying to find loop-holes in this the best solution? 

OK for you to say that sat there in your PAYE job.

 

The address could be interpreted either way. Clear as mud. Did he mean if travel for the work was essential or if the work itself was essential? And who gets to define essential?

 

I'll keep working until law enforcement tell me otherwise, or BoJo puts his hand in his pocket like he has for everyone else and pays me not to.

I've got jobs booked in and I'm going to work tomorrow. I'm self employed, don't need to mix with anyone apart from my subbie. 


Kind of what I was thinking but I’m starting to wonder if I ought to bite the bullet... but as a self employed person I’m not prepared to get fucked in the arse and spend my life savings on rent because I have no income

I read it as if you  can't work from home you can go to work
