Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I disagree. A good proportion of office jobs can be done from home. Entry-level jobs like call-centre work can easily be done from home.

The only jobs that can't are the ones where physical stuff has to be warehoused and/or processed. But anything that's paper-based, phone-based or e-based is an easy win.

Some businesses are already doing it. I know a couple of people with ordinary office jobs who have been shifted out of central London properties and are now working from home.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
