Covid lockdown: 'We are burning through about £500,000 a day'
22/02/2021 | news | business | 1,509
The owner of PureGym says lockdown has been costing his business hundreds of thousands of pounds a day.
Clearly the people who are criticising others on this conversation for wanting the gyms to open are the obese and lazy people of society trying to make themselves feel better.

The rest of us want to get back to the gyms - open the darn gyms.

My monthly subscription renewed a day before the lockdown last March. I asked for the money back and they didn't reply. So I am not sympathetic. They are ruthless business people and will have to take the rough with the smooth.
Oh no you lost 19 quid. Get over it loser. Removed
Noticed the BBC have not posted my pushback on the left wing orthodoxy of : All business people = criminals , come on BBC , we know you moderators are centre left or even far left but do try and show some balance Removed

Our clown of a PM will let people play football in gangs of 22 people all diving into each other, spitting and hugging each other - but keep gyms closed

The man is a first class moron and judging by his waistline has never seen the inside of a gym

Take the bmi results with a pinch of salt. According to experts, 1 in 3 children are obese. I have 5 young children attending two different schools, according to these experts i be seeing 120 fat kids at each school run. I have seen one child in years id consider to be anywhere near overweight. In any place where there are maybe 10,000 kids going to school, you really see 3000 fat kids around?!

I have two siblings who have BMI's of 40+ and 35+ dis-respectively. I myself have never allowed my survival genetics to take over, so have a BMI of 22.

They never go to the gym and it shows. I meanwhile, never go to a gym either, or ever have done. I just train three hours per day.

Gym's (I've been told) are inhabited by guys admiring themselves in mirrors.
And paying to do so.

I'll pass.

The bulk of that loss could be due to a dramatic fall in steroid transactions! Removed

I can't wait for the gym in my town to re-open. I'll be able to use their car park again as a shortcut to the chip shop.

The BBC burns about £11m a day and offers nothing like the social benefit. Removed

The English nationalists and far-right are waging war on the mainstream media. The BBC must be protected from them.

BBC is great in my opinion. If I go abroad and watch tv there, especially news or documentaries, coming back here reminds me just how lucky we are. The politicians knock bbc because it doesn’t give them an uncritical space to trumpet their own views. Both sides complain so that is reassuring. No advertising is great. Long live the bbc ! ! !

Or perhaps a better headline : stupid and frightened government lead by scaremongering scientists causes self induced worst recession in 300 years
