Re: Now Walkers at it...

Calderwood should go if any potential replacement is as experienced and as knowledgable as she is.
If not, she carries on until the crisis is over. You don't throw your best people overboard, just yet, even if they have fooked up big time.

No agenda here, just a genuine question.

If you smoke, however frequently or not, has the Covid-19 outbreak changed your attitude ? Are you now trying to give up, will give up in the future or saying along the lines of "To hell with it, if your number's up, it's up." and carrying on regardless ?
