? We've proved we can be productive at home
? We cut down on pollution and burning of fossil fuels
? We cut down on traffic congestion and public transport over-crowding
? We get a better work-life balance with improved mental health

Only the crustiest of dinosaurs would object to home working post Covid ?????

OK, it's not possible for everyone all the time.

But, for some of the time, it is.
Unfortunately Ian! Boris and his team will be passing brown envelopes to company directors to get people into the office! I work for one of top companies in the Uk. Already had Company director preferring us workers in the office. When the time comes but he will work from home in Sunny Ascot! I would love to work from home permanently! ?? Removed

Unfortunately, it's all about control - the staid dinosaurs do not believe that people have the discipline or will-power to work from home and therefore in their minds their employees don't. They like to have someone in the office to crack the whip over!

Considering just how many "brown envelopes" are apparently passed around, you'd have thought someone in the police would have noticed...

You need to get back to the office, the economy needs you back. Cafes, restaurants, pubs, retail all need you lazy bunch back in the office.

Silly comment. People who work from home miss out of a lot of interaction and supervision. So bad luck it isn’t going to last

When you are the boss you can do what you like; until then you are a cog. Take the paycheck and stop whinging or leave. Your call.

A large part of office working is efficiency.
It is factually more efficient to be at the office for jobs than at home.

According to "media" reports the public are upset and demanding answers.
Back in the real world I haven't spoken to anyone who gives a toss about the attention seeking pair's latest attempt to be relevant.

I went into work the other day for the first time in a year and I got nothing done. It seems crazy to return to what was the norm and being less productive. I work in IT and we have 90% of our company working well from home.
You're a nerd though, no offence. Removed

Might also be a good idea to have MPs and MSPs work from home, would save a fortune, especially for the Scottish Londoners. Removed

Getting them to work - would be a good start.

Rather than rant and rave and act like petulant children.
