Nick Ferrari said people who work from home aren’t working and Stuart Maconie had the last word
Nick Ferrari wants everyone to get back to work. Not just back to work, but back to work in their workplaces, because Nick thinks working from home isn’t proper work. It’s just dicking around, basically.
Nick Ferrari had this message for companies who are keeping their employees working from home all year: “This country is broke and we have to get it moving again. That’s not going to happen with you in your jim-jams, not doing anything all day.”@NickFerrariLBC | #WFH pic.twitter.com/PsiurW3Iqu

And there was no shortage of admirable responses …
What an out of touch tosspot. I’ve been working my bloody nuts off at home, ‘whilst’ teaching my kids. My working week now looks like 50 hours and I haven’t had a week off all year. I don’t work in my Jim Jams, but who gives a rats arse if I do.

Making people physically transport their carcasses to a workplace, and away from their home, so they’ll be more likely to buy a mass produced snack for their lunch, to improve the economy, is plain daft on so very many levels…..😏

I worked from home for ten years, not in my “jim jams”. I worked long hours, and was more productive than I had been travelling for two hours per day, waiting in queues, polluting the environment, standing in packed trains. I have rarely heard a more stupid comment.

… but Stuart Maconie’s was surely the best.
I have some expertise in this regard. So I feel I can say that a man who sits on his arse all day talking into a microphone who then lectures folk about ‘work’ has one brass neck https://t.co/aZ2fgpANmQ
