obviously not in tune with her readers
I've worked throughout this whole thing and fuck me, I'm glad I wasn't furloughed, friends of mine have told me of the fear of redundancy and the reduced income they've dealt with and it doesn't sound like a lot of fun, as stressful as work has been over the last couple of weeks. This and the tweet today show exactly what Vine thinks of ordinary people who have had their lives upended due to all this while she and her husband continue to be paid as normal. Just get fucked, Sarah.Furlough isn’t a free holiday
Speaking to friends of mine who run small businesses (a chiropractic clinic, a production company, a dog-walking service), a pattern is emerging. Staff who have been furloughed simply don’t want to return to work.

Don’t get me wrong, I can completely see the appeal of this idea. Trouble is, if everyone behaves that way, there won’t be anything to go back to. The furlough scheme was conceived as a vital lifeline for people during this deadly crisis — not an excuse to have an extended holiday at the expense of the taxpayer.
This is not really fair. The mother of my daughter is a doc maker and, as a Production Manager, falls squarely in to that category. She bills out about 600 GBP a day can actually charge out barely a hundred in any one year. The rest is a full time job pitching and preparing for gigs which may or may not be commissioned.
Looking for the bit in her posting history where she condemns the VE day street parties and drunken congas rather than waffling on about the great British bulldog spirit, but can't seem to find it.
I'm sure she's been equally critical of people behaving the same way on Britain's beaches. That's definitely something she's done.
