Surely most people aren't earning much money/furloughed/too anxious to splurge?

Yeah, I think most people will be holding what they have for the coming unemployment or fear of it. The furlough was to cover the costs of businesses making no income. The government is about to reduce that while many of those businesses are still making no income. Others not enough. Does anyone really think most restaurants are going to survive even when they reopen with measures? The same for pubs, theatres, music venues? And what about gyms, spas, etc? Some are already going to the wall.

It must be the minority of people who are financially in the same position as before the lockdown.

Cash has been held with airlines and accommodation for next year - nice and easy.

yeah holding even saving a little - even successful companies will make cuts I think.

The hope is that change brings opportunities as well as threats.

I imagine instead of restaurants, people will get takeaways, or instead of take away they will get taste the difference etc . Thats if they want a treat. On the other hand some people who were on taste the difference will be on Lidl sell bys... maybe more home grown food?

Come to Portugal in August/Sept. I've been in lockdown here for 3 months and it's been lovely. They are desperate for British tourists to come and an airbridge shortly is likely. Algarve resorts are at 30% capacity. The main tourist/UNESCO heritage spots are blissfully empty and flights aren't too bad. Glad I left south London tbh. Looks like a clown show over there.

Neighbours bought a mega size TV considering they would be spending more time at home.

Being as many of us are working from home forever now there is no reason to stay in London.

People beginning to fan out across UK (and Europe until Brexit day)
