Strange isn't it, considering how successful they've been with washing our cars.
Opening up again round our way.
Funny that you should mention that. The primary cause of my anger had to be sacked. He had no concept of danger or safety, and was a menace, and an accident waiting to happen. His barrow was removed. The last that I heared, he was working at the car wash baby. I assume that he is still making "brum brum" noises.

Ive been furloughed since 1st April and not returning to work until 1st June, well done the government for coming up with a scheme so quickly, its not full pay by any means but it certainly keeps the wolves from the door. Ive been doing volunteer work most of the time, even though the task wont be finished when we go back to work, its been a pleasure to help out.

This is a genuine thank you to our government for ignoring past ideology and implementing some socialist policies to help protect those of us who could have gone under in these times of need.  I don't agree with all their actions by any means, but economically they have taken a risk and it could have been so much worse, both now and in the future.

I am a sole trader and today was able to go on line and confirm my claim the self employed financial help scheme.  It was very quick and easy with confirmation that soon I will be receiving what I thought I was due, to help tide me over until I can get back to working again (first bit of work for 8 weeks due next Tuesday!).

We all have times of need, whether it is me at the moment or the drug addicts who have hit rock bottom and are living on the street.  That's why we pay tax - to help those who need it.  Also to help fund our public services that so many of us have really relied upon.  Be proud to pay your taxes!  I declare all my income, don't get an accountant to find ways to reduce what I owe so I can pay them a fee - I pay what I really am due.  If only big corporations would do the same.

I would be happy to pay a raised rate of income tax to help those sectors which have been underfunded for far too long, but really do think those who can afford more should also shoulder more of that burden, including and particularly the big corporations.

As well as a thank you to those decision makers, thanks to those at the HMRC for making it happen and also to all you fellow tax payers who are helping me put food on my family's table.  When my earnings are back up again, I will support some fellow local traders to help get their businesses going again - but it won't be those who offer a discount for cash.
They've renationalised Northern Rail too. Norman Tebbit must be spinning in his grave. (Yes I know)
