But a ratio of “up to” 30% of the entire workforce sounds extreme. Michael O’Leary at Ryanair, who rarely does things by halves, opted for 15%, and has suggested in recent days that the final figure could be lower.EasyJet explained that “levels of market demand seen in 2019 are not likely to be reached again until 2023”. That is possible, of course, but the prediction could also turn out to be too gloomy. The peak Easter and summer seasons of 2021 remain a very long way off. If they’re free to travel, would Brits, and Europeans in general, deny themselves a foreign holiday for two years in a row? Long-haul flights will probably be slow to recover, but that’s not EasyJet’s market.

So it is that David Atkins, chief executive of Hammerson, can announce his departure sometime before next spring while his chairman, David Tyler, offers cheery slaps on the back for 10 years of terrific work. In most other industries, the duo would have been ushered out after the events of 2017-18.To recap: the Atkins and Tyler combo proposed paying a magnificent �3.4bn for Intu, Hammerson’s smaller shopping centre rival. The deal would have been catastrophic when you see that Intu’s equity is virtually worthless today. Only a revolt by Hammerson’s own shareholders saved the day.

As he lost his job, the share price rose 28%. The market’s implied judgment was harsh but fair: a new driver was desperately needed to give credibility to Aston Martin’s latest pitch about corporate turnaround.Palmer, said his fans, had done brilliant work in revitalising Aston Martin under private ownership but he would forever be remembered for one of the silliest pieces of flotation hype of recent times. “We don’t make cars, we make dreams,” he declared in September 2018.
