Tim Martin, Chairman of Weatherspoons pub chain, came under fire as he said the company would not cover staff wages from the coronavirus

A gammon-faced arsehole called Tim
(Who’s unpleasant and seriously dim)
Thinks it’s a good laugh
To shit on his staff
His soul, like his pubs, is just grim.

    while Tim Martin has clearly displayed an ugliness and evidence of detachment it is broadsheet that has allowed Moynes to broadcast his filthy racism.

    I don’t think it’s unreasonable for a business which is encountering through no fault of its own a fiscal dryspell to ask its suppliers if they can defer payment
    It’s what I’d do
    As for not paying staff until they receive the grant on April 3 – right? That’s a week away. I imagine that saying they’ll be paid for their work until Friday means they’ll be paid for that work on Friday, which is today. And then a week passes, it’s April 3, the grant comes in, the payment goes out, people get their money. And then it continues to happen every week after that.
    What am I missing here?
