Many people in my adopted industry - both early career and TV veterans - are really suffering because the government is excluding them from its provision. Please have a read. https://t.co/Z7aCoUhmuk— Suzannah Lipscomb (@sixteenthCgirl) May 30, 2020
It's gone from "we're following the science" to Rishi Sunak saying "Steve and his colleagues (the scientists) are completely aware of everything we're doing"... Bloody hell!#DailyBriefinguk— Femi (@Femi_Sorry) May 29, 2020
The government promised self-employed people that they would receive “parity of support” with furloughed staff.— Adam Bienkov (@AdamBienkov) May 29, 2020
Instead Rishi Sunak announces that self-employed people will receive two months less support than people on PAYE, with support cut to 70% of their income.

I am concerned about Rishi Sunak’s announcement regarding furlough. Hospitality/leisure was one of the first to close and will be one of the last to open. Operators simply can’t afford to contribute to wages whilst still closed. If he asks for this, it’ll create huge job losses.— Sacha Lord (@Sacha_Lord) May 29, 2020

Reducing support to all or most workers and employers before the economy is back up and running would be a blunt and disastrous instrument. Please don’t take that sharp right turn - my appeal to @RishiSunak in today's @guardian https://t.co/imGiAgr6kD— Len McCluskey (@LenMcCluskey) May 28, 2020
Remember when people thought Rishi Sunak was the one good member of the government? They had widely overestimated the number of good people in the government.— Matt Haig (@matthaig1) May 27, 2020
I’m just going to reiterate....in my personal situation, I won’t be sending my 8 year old back to school until Prince Will, Rees-Mogg & Rishi Sunak send back their primary aged kids.
