I got an email from O2 about the reopening of their shops last week.
Amongst the usual 'social distancing' and 'wash your hands' crap that's ubiquitous now, I noticed something else:
And - three months in to the Coronavirus lockdown - I begin to wonder how much longer everyone else is to be treated as a second-class citizen? Because it's not just O2 - NHS and care workers get special dispensation in supermarkets, and even discounts in some (Morrison's for example).
I could understand the initial reason for this when panic buying set in, and we had that nurse blubbering on YouTube that she couldn't get shopping because the shelves had been emptied. But the shelves have been stocked properly for the last month and a half.
So why - now that the need is no longer there - do these concessions still persist?
