Got this email from the Chief Exec of Sainsburys

You will have seen that, due to the ongoing uncertainty around the full impact of Coronavirus, supermarkets have been much busier than usual and customers are choosing to stock up.
I wanted to personally reassure you that we have more food and other essential items coming to us from manufacturers and into our warehouses and distribution centres. If we all shop just for the food that we and our families need, there will be enough for everyone.
I also wanted to let you know that at Sainsbury's, we are working really hard to ensure this remains the case. Over the past two weeks we have:
Ordered more stock of essential items from our suppliers
Put more capacity into our warehouses and Set limits on a small number of items, including some cleaning products, soap and pain relief. This is a precautionary measure - if everyone shops normally, there will be enough for everyone.
There are gaps on shelves because of increased demand, but we have new stock arriving regularly and we're doing our best to keep shelves stocked. Our store colleagues are working tirelessly and doing the best job they can.
Which brings me onto a request. Please think before you buy and only buy what you and your family need. If we all do this then we can make sure we have enough for everyone. And please help elderly and vulnerable friends, family and neighbours with their shopping if you can.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and to thank our colleagues who are all working incredibly hard to ensure we can continue to serve our customers well.
Best wishes
Mike


The key part is.....
if everyone shops normally, there will be enough for everyone
Can't see that happening

Maybe they'll only allow essential travel but IMO a 50th birthday trip is essential

You are right about the NHS

Because it's taxpayer funded it has to run at that capacity. Annual budgets need to be spent or else they are cut the following year using the argument 'you clearly don't need that much money if you haven't spent it'. They can't be seen to having surplus funds as then it becomes profit making and the British taxpayer would be complaining about all that money we are paying that isn't being used.... That means you can't build in financial capacity for future contingency beyond the financial year end.

It's the same in education. Department capitation must be spent up as you can't carry funds forward for the next year.

Of course the alternative is privately funded healthcare which then results in a system where the poorest can't afford treatment...

So what would you like to see being done. Do you think we should be in total lock down?
