  1. Amazing. So you are the grandson of a Northern Irish Protestant, and you think his balaclava post was "made in good humour". Really, that's Shocking. The fact that we now have this pandemic does not detract in any way, shape or form from what he did. And to use it as a sort of mitigating circumstance is absolutely baffling. To further cement your ludicrous post, you say that those that support the feeling of outrage at his actions were simply just Brexit supporters! Unbelievable Jeff.
  2. I'm in The Sham too, impressive, and fair play to those that took part.
  3. Wear not 'where' ffs. I agree with the comedic value but come on. I'm proud of our colours, not 'prowed'.
  4. After the address to the nation by Boris last night, I made a decision to cancel the work I had booked in for today and for the foreseeable future. Being a self-employed sole trader that obviously has massive financial implications that I was willing to accept. I also felt though that the decision would help protect myself and others. Into the small hours and after many conversations with mates in the same situation there were two schools of thought. The message from the government was rather ambiguous, so some were going to carry on as normal, some weren't. All were confused as to what financial support, if any, would be forthcoming in the near future. I can't work from home, I have to travel to customers premises to fix problems. Some aspects of my job are essential for their wellbeing. During the night I received a text from a customer who had a desperate emergency. I attended this morning to rectify. I considered it an essential repair. They certainly did and we're most grateful. Whilst on that job I received a similar call, attended and rectified again. It was now the afternoon and I was in my working stride. Again the phone rang, another essential job, which i attended and fortunately rectified again. I called one of the customers that I cancelled to see if she wanted me to attend to her non essential job, she was very happy for me to visit, so I did. To me she was non essential, to her it was very much required due to her mobility issues. So, I am now back working as normally as possible, whilst being very aware of mine and others wellbeing. I fully understand if I'm not needed or welcome at this present time, both my customers and I call it how we see it. Unless the government can support tradesmen adequately, I and many others will continue to trade. If forced to stop working I shall. However, it will be extremely hard for me to leave people in a desperate state and open to being ripped off by lesser operators than myself.
  5. You must be remote if you can't phone them.
  6. I think it's monthly that the figures are referring to.
  7. Thanks. I'm self-employed. If the payments work I'll stay at home to protect myself and potentially others and tighten the purse strings.
  8. Sorry, I meant the payment. Monthly, weekly, how is it paid?
  9. What time period is the 80% or circa £3000 over?
  10. And so they should. If anyone doesn't declare all of their earnings to HMRC then they'll lose out, but they gained by not paying their taxes correctly in the first place. No sympathy here I'm afraid.
  11. Why oh why are flights from China, Italy and Iran still allowed to land in this country. Absolute madness!
  12. How very dare you! Clarks pies (Clarks not Clark's by the way) are mint. Still loving them and the pasties after many years of consumption. I think they are only made in Bemmy now.
  13. Ah good, thread title change. Carry on chaps.
  14. It had to happen. This was a debate about Coronavirus and its effects on football. Now its turned into some sort of political slanging match. Unbelievable! People, get a grip. There's the opportunity for such discussion on the other forum.
