A weekly payment based on your 2018 tax return (Net Profit minus Capital Allowances) would seem reasonable on condition that your licences and PSV insurance are suspended while you are in receipt of the payments. It's a crisis, not a time for greed.

Got a WhatsApp message to say a Dublin driver has died, and had the virus.
He was a long time driver, F badge and elderly.
I won't put up his name until further information is known.

That's sad if it turns out to be true.I took a spin through town earlier and the set up down on Hanover quay is fairly sobering.They've got one of them MASH type army tents set up for tests beside one of the NAVY ships with the Gardai controlling the traffic.It's opposite the convention centre.

The medics inside were in full hazmat suits.Nobody going in yet but they're getting prepared.

That's why I'll keep my counsel until then.
Billy was the nickname I was told.

Govt need to make that call. The public need a service so they'll have to bring in the army or something for HSE workers and for all other workers, carers, etc if they don't elect to close down everything, including supermarkets.
