In the news today that the chief No1 Gammon Tim Martin (owner of "spoons" fame) is now not going to be paying his staff for the time the pubs are shut, cant say if they will claim any money from the government for furlowed worker scheme.

And now he says "you better get a job in Tesco". I knew this guy was a bit crazy but seriously.....

I don't think he meant it as the bbc are making out, he is saying if you want to take a job while we are closed feel free, keep the food chain going then come back when its over, i hate this kind ******** reporting

this is what wiki says
In 2018, it became particularly known as a term to describe white middle-aged or older men on the political right or who supported Brexit.The term refers in particular, to the colour of such a person's flushed face, especially when expressing their strong opinions, as compared to the type of pork of the same name.

I totally agree with your point Rodcx500z, but he is still a complete tool.

Ignoring the “go to Tesco” stuff, he’s still one of the richest men in the U.K. yet refusing to pay staff who will be earning living wage at best until the government pay a grant in what could be as long as a month and a half’s time.

JD Wetherspoon has said it does not intend to pay money owed to its suppliers until after its pubs reopen following the coronavirus crisis.

In an email sent to suppliers and seen by Footprint, the pub chain said: “We are asking for a moratorium on payments, until the pubs reopen, at which point we intend to clear outstanding payments, within a short timeframe.”
