However all those multi million and billion pound companies will need bail outs and they are obviously far more important.

The only problem with boycotting these companies is that it won’t be the owners who suffer, it’ll once again be their staff. 

Branson and Ashley are already billionaires, if Virgin Or Sports Direct are boycotted they’ll just invest their money elsewhere... the same with Tim “Britain First” Martin.

These guys employ thousands and thousands of people and have shown throughout this ordeal that they’ll happily cut those at the bottom to protect their stash.

Hopefully when all this settles down those people are honoured / thanked in some tangible way like tax cuts, discounts in shops etc. Now warning a political point some of those I’ve mentioned are classed as low skilled jobs but when the shit hits the fan who were the people who held this country together?! So when they complain about their wages, or working conditions in better times support them rather than suggest they aren’t important or just moaning.

Absolutely agree Derek, for too long there has been an attitude in this country that it is ok to sneer at certain types of jobs. Turns out many of these jobs are key. 

As new MP Nadia Whitmore said ' last month care workers were low skilled. Now they are key workers. They always were.'
