    I never usually follow but it is interesting to see how many billions are being lost. Is this real money or paper chase money? How many of the billionaires/multi millionaires will lose! None it will be the pension pots of the ordinary person who will subsidies and when the stocks return high who again will be the winner

    I followed a lorry once full of stock going to the market. So yeah I do follow the stockmarket. Wouldn't advise it as I ended up doing 3 years in Parkhurst.

    Not sure I have sympathy with either if they have shares in Capita? :D

    Just thought it would be relevant to this forum as it’s about Capita. Sorry if my post offended you?

    Depends if government bails out all the industries crying out for funding or whether they make the millionaires and billionaires who own or part own the companies use their money.
    Personally I would like the government to pay money direct to workers who will be left high and dry to be able to live. Rather than bail out the companies. We saw what happened when the banks bailed out it was the people who paid the price through austerity.
