Is this likely to indicate the earliest that the restrictions will end? It does to me.

//Should we all resign ourselves to the restrictions are going to last well into the autumn?// We might as well. The outcome of removing them then will be the same as removing them now, "but you can't be too careful".

Some restrictions are effectively ending tomorrow, as I understood it. I'm not sure what is particularly special about October but it makes sense to extend the furlough scheme.
He seems to be the only one in government that puts any thought into his plans.

13.26 Nothing at all to do with this thread. If you have nothing to offer this thread then...
Just to add, businesses won't just open up, and be in the same place has when they closed, that goes really without saying, the cash till will have little going it for a while, so no need for full staff, so some will still need to be kept on furlough until it picks up.
Teackake, please differentiate between "as" and "has"
13.35 Please stick to the thread.
It is as annoying as "of" and "have".
I think a lot of restrictions will be lifted before then, but some people won’t be able to get back to work, maybe like pubs (hopefully not)etc. Won’t till then
was the chancellor speaking in the capacity of chancellor of the UK, or chancellor of England?
Good question, Mushroom.

13.39 You will just have to carry on being annoyed, there's no PPE for it. :0)
//...was the chancellor speaking in the capacity of chancellor of the UK, or chancellor of England?//

A very pertinent question. I don't imagine for one moment the minor players will depart from having their constituents' wages paid for another five months even if they were able to opt out.
//was the chancellor speaking in the capacity of chancellor of the UK, or chancellor of England?//

I think he starts with “this government” so most likely UK
It applies to the UK
"Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme will continue until end of October
furloughed workers across UK will continue to receive 80% of their current salary, up to £2,500"

not sure you can assume that Steg - Boris started his speech in a similar way and no sooner than he opened his mouth, your first minister said "thus diznae apply tae Scotland...."
Question Author
Thank you for the (Mainly sensible) input. Should we all resign ourselves to the restrictions are going to last well into the autumn?
Question Author
To the ‘realisation that’....
Some may be in place beyond Autumn but the hope/aim must be to have most places of work open by then but with maybe some restrictions still in place on things like concerts and football, and maybe limits on numbers for pubs and restaurants.
I think we'll end restrictions before October but they are just defining the potential time, to which some degree of Furlough will be needed. Starting even now we are heading back to what would be the new normal.
