  1. Have a Jaguar I-Pace myself. Efficiency is very poor at around 2.6 miles per kW. Because of the tariff I'm on it works out at best 2p per mile or worst 6p per mile. Real world get about 240 miles range. So doesn't matter really about the efficiency. I wouldn't trade it for a tesla under any conditions. When I sit in a tesla vs what I'm used to, the build quality is shocking.
  2. Public sector retention rates are very high. That tells you everything you need to know about the working conditions. However if not....I know a few people who work in the public sector. They've been fully paid since March and only had to do 1 day per week despite it being an office job. Even when the kids went back in September they are still only churning out 1 day of work between 9 and 3.30pm. Not bad for £40k and fat pension at the end.
  3. The landlords aren't paying their taxes so they don't care about all these changes. Only 60k declared out of 1.5 to 2 million landlord estimate. Shambles.
  4. We have all those things. You can add that I think you should get paid NOT to have children.
  5. This is not far off at all. I'm on a team writing a piece of software which is about to put 4000 people out of work in the next year. Walked through a massive office block with the guy who wants it, he whispered "every single one of these will go and we'll save a fortune and make fewer mistakes". In a nutshell that's why I'm strongly against immigration. We need fewer people now not restless millions tomorrow.
  6. They can't even collect the current btl taxes, let alone the new ones. I certainly will not pay taxes where I know I can avoid them safely(as proved by watching those around me).
  7. Don't forget that both cpi and rpi were changed in this period to "better reflect modern Britain". A.k.a nobble the figures and bring them down. If we are rising on the new metrics you can bet that it's much worse in reality.
  8. Only available to those on tax credits or universal benefits. Aren't your levels of these determined as a balance of the other? Do we have a benefits system or not? Is this for people self isolating from the job centre or their made up nail bar? Lots of screeching to remove the benefit cap too. All the people hoping to pump out 8 kids and get 40k+ for 30 years have suddenly noticed this getting implemented.
  9. Exactly. Apply at overseas embassies. If you turn up in the UK by boat then you should either be returned to your last safe country or returned to your country of origin, all the above is agreed upon in international law. Also where did it say she starved to death? Where's the father when all this is going on? Sturgeon's comments were vomit inducing.
  10. My LinkedIn feed is a slew of redundancies today. All terrible jobs like recruiters, trainers and marketers. Quite a few seem to be setting up their own company. Sure that will go well.
  11. This site has had trash hosting for a long time. Always slow to respond and sometimes.... not there at all. Very much like a landlord.
  12. So 2.7 million unemployed. 9.6 million on furlough. 2.7 million self employed claiming furlough(although may still be working). Total 15 million out of a work force of 33million ish. 45% right now claiming benefits. Insane. At least we don't have to worry about where to get our fruit pickers, hospitality workers and hand car washers from.
  13. So black people are only 12% of us population and conduct all that crime? Wow.
  14. https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/too-many-nhs-deaths/ Crowd funder for the legal case if anyone wants to help. P.s I'm not affiliated in any respect.
  15. Didn't take long to get an update: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53672841
  16. After hmrc watered down the loan charge scheme punishments then I have lost all hope. No point being paye. I'm going to dodge tax every chance I get.
  17. Hi DTL you may not be aware of this. But things have been watered down significantly. Indeed HMRC have started giving out refunds. It's completely soul destroying.
  18. As predicted many times in this thread.... No BTLs declared so it was all noise from HMRC. Zero hope of them chasing. The will just isn't there. BTL scum lords have gotten away with it.
  19. After what has just happened with the loan charge scheme(basically let off for 10 years) then I'm not holding my breath of HMRC chasing this properly. Amateur landlords have been getting away with it since the mid 90s. The legal action will cite lack of chasing as an issue and then only say tax from 2025 is due. 30 years tax free gains. Nice.
  20. It's interesting you write this. I may or may not have come to similar conclusions regarding similar things.
  21. Seen this threat countless times over the last 10 years. Nothing ever happens. I reported 3 x undeclared landlords that I know about just to see what would happen.... Nothing has happened but I'd say it's a good £50k missed from those 3 alone. As well as my report they are all second home owners so the information is there. Just not the will.
  22. Got a friend who has never worked more than 4 days per week. Never earned more than £25k, never really done anything but go on holiday. Parents just bought her a £1 million house and she says she's "worked hard for it". This nationwide change only affects the poorer fish.
  23. Someone I know in the pubic sector.... barely working 1 day a week because of children in coronavirus. No output expected, writes policy documents that no one reads. They are saving up their holiday to take when have to go back full time. Accumulating a pension at very high levels.
  24. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jul/15/coronavirus-contracts-government-transparency-pandemic Newspaper update. Looks like a few more corrupt contracts unearthed. Looking forward to seeing this play out in the courts.
