  1. Very interesting reading through this thread with all the comments from you youngsters! Then I saw the above, and remembered that after a week's holiday in Newquay 1967 (most of the Bristol Mods went there or Torquay) and listening to a record played every night in the Newquay Disco we frequented, I just had to get that record. Tried all the usual record shops without success, then went to the Picton Street store. They had to order it for me, still got it to this day! Can't remember the name of the store though. Took what seemed like forever on our Lambrettas to get to Newquay and back, no M5 in those days either! https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiV3rerwcLoAhXRQEEAHUxxCgwQ3ywwAHoECBYQBA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DL5fJQ9DYL0k&usg=AOvVaw2dBLyyEQJ9h6U9i9WdQZ6F
  2. There's definitely a Newcastle. I wonder if you can get return flights between them.
  3. It's a rare opportunity this week for the forecasters to get it correct every day
  4. We've spent so much time talking to friends and relatives about what are we all going to do with our time, that we have had time to do anything!
  5. Apparently in good health. So why has he been tested? Yes I know, Royal privilege etc. Blah blah. But a lot more front line folk at risk would love to be tested.
  6. Of course, not disputing that for one moment. And for many different types of self employed it's obviously very difficult to sort out. Just suggesting that getting help to CIS self employed via their UTR, in the same way their over payment of tax is refunded, would be relatively straightforward. My view, fwiw, is a subsistance payment to everyone. Same amount, enough to cover bills, food etc. And so what if some benefit, while others will find it inadequate. At least it would help the vast majority and enable people to stay home and stop the virus spreading and not become destitute.
  7. Exactly. There's a lot of ignorant comments on here. And as I pointed out much earlier in this thread CIS self employed have already contributed too much tax during the present financial year. That's the way it's done. As HMRC issue tax rebates following CIS tax returns against a sub contractor's UTR I don't see why it would be that difficult to provide the appropriate financial support by the same method. IR35 cases may be more difficult/complicated, I have no experience with this. But getting help to at least some CIS self employed would be a start and demonstrate that something was being done.
  8. Indeed, what if someone has been S.E. for less than 36 months?
  9. Plenty of dolphins in Mandurah estuary, not sure when I will be in a position to see them again though!
  10. Human intelligence. Is there a bigger oxymoron?
  11. Indeed, and such irony. The blonde blustering buffoon wanted to"get Brexit done" so as to have greater control over our borders. It's laughable if it wasn't such a serious blunder.
  12. My son is a chippy, so under CIS tax system. Three large jobs he would have been working on until mid summer have been pulled. In the unlikely event that he could find any work he has the problem of child care as the schools have closed. I should add that under the CIS system the government actually owes him a fair amount, as he's over paid tax, which is usual under this system. But it's too early to get the tax return in. So he, and millions like him are doubly shafted!
  13. Judging by the glowing praise on here following today's announcements, I would hazard a guess that no self employed skilled tradesmen are adding to the endorsements.
  14. Thanks everyone for posting this. Just paused mine Strange feeling to think that Sky are delivering such good customer service which benefits their customers financially! Very nice gesture
