Zero seriously zero, sympathy for those who don’t carry insurance. Difficult enough navigating the minefield that is an insurance claim. IIRC, the fire levy for emergency services, is now attached to council rates?One of my colleagues partner works at a hospital and told them that they (and their colleagues) have seen, both in the flesh and on security screens, members of the public rip off hand sanitizers of the wall, put it in their bag and walk out of the hospital. It is stunning.During the fire crisis my wife and I were looking at how we could donate to support those back home, however we asked ourselves some questions.
2020 - the year of Covid-19 & me, me, me and stuff everyone else. The last part also known as the 21st century.
1) If they have insurance they are covered?
2) if they don't have insurance why should we bail them out?
3) How do we ensure our money goes to the right people who worked to help others?
After reading your post and seeing all the panic buying stupidity and profiteering we are so glad we only gave money to support animal welfare and direct to some organizations not involved with human welfare, such as RFB. I know this isn't everyone and likely a few but I cannot help but wonder if any of these people had their hands out a few months ago.
You took the risk and lost.
