Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak & the DWP please work to find a solution for the millions of people that are going to be affected by having to isolate due the coronavirus pandemic.

People up and down the country are desperately worried as they face the prospect of not having work and thus no income to pay their rent, bills or buy food. You as our government need to provide the security your people require of you in this unprecedented time.

Measures you should be taking include;

Freezing or paying all rents for at least 3 months to match the promise made to all mortgage payers 

Cancelling or reducing council tax during this period

Force utility companies to lower or cancel all bills during this period of time

Ensure all workers receive their wages during this period where they are unable to work to ensure no family, no person has to go without what they need to survive, Statutory sick pay (SSP) is not enough to cover this. 

Workers on zero hours contracts are also protected, current help does not provide enough income to suppliment what has been lost to those workers without fixed hours or working less than required to receive SSP, they should be provided with an average of what they have earnt over the last 3 months until they are able to return to work. 

Ensure self employed people are provided with the finances to replace what they will lose while they are unable to work. 

Protect all people from being made redundant, providing help to businesses is great but will mean nothing without a work force to rely upon.

Ensure all members of society are able to access the food they need by ensuring the shops can stay well stocked. 

These measures should be applied for even longer for those forced to isolate for longer (elderly, those with weakened immune systems and pregnant women).

We the people have supported this country for countless years its now time for the country to support us in this time of greatest need, Mr Johnson, Mr Sunak we are looking to you to support us, the actions you take now will reverberate through history, make sure your names are remembered for the right reasons.
