  1. Wow some very bitter people on here. I don't begrudge someone unemployed or under employed getting a benefit, if they didn't get it then it wouldn't go to me instead that's for sure. 39% of UC claimants are in work, quite a lot in the "essential" jobs that have allowed a lot of us to sit on our asses at our laptops for the last year so it's clear that the shitty wages are the reason they need it. Poor people spend money, isn't that what we want/ need? It a clear the majority on here have not a lot of experience of the UC system as it is not easy to game the system like you se
  2. Yea I'll happily take it although I imagine I'm a couple years down the queue at this point
  3. So the new variants have shut down the "just let it spread among the young and protect the old" camps. This is a very clever virus and clearly not helped by our lax attitude. Every new host is a potential new mutation and I think I read recently that this virus has mutated far faster than most seen before. We do need to get a grip on this it's getting silly now. Such a lazy and defeatist early attitude of "can't stop it, just like the flu, so what they are old anyway" bla bla (which was clearly impossible anyway- even for Sweden). Maybe if this ends up going the way of the Spa
  4. I'll be getting it when it finally rolls around to my age group. No serious concerns for myself if I catch covid but I don't want to pass onto other more vulnerable people. Of course the government have to actually roll it out successfully for it to work so I'll watch that space.
  5. Antivaxxers have been around since 1800 odd when the first vaccine was ever produced. It brings me comfort in an odd way to know that it's kind of normal for people to be scared of things they don't understand. The main issue currently is nonsense and pseudoscience spreads 4 times faster than the truth. If this is some giant conspiracy it's a bloody good one and kudos to the those running the show.
  6. Nope i wasn't crowing for lockdown at all, I was more in the camp of shouldn't have let it run rampant in the first place. Have you seen the videos of Hancock picking his nose and telling parliament that they have put leaflets up in airports there's nothing to worry about this will not be a problem for the UK, fast forward 11 months and it ooops turns out it was a slight issue afterall. In hindsight, probably should have stopped the planes in from US and China and Italy, maybe should have done a bit of test and trace in the early days and maybe, just maybe paying people to go out and eat
  7. So the public sector workers that kept the country running are having another pay freeze to pay for . . . Dido Harding to buy another horse, Half price burgers and chips and for people to be sat at home for months. From the basic consensus I've seen so far it appears the default position is along the lines of "I'm on furlough and would love to go back to my job so everyone else should be happy to accept a cut". I'm very sorry but if you are still on furlough you probably don't have a job to go back to and I would have been looking elsewhere by now, not sat on the sofa waiting for it magic
  8. The Landlord And Tenant Act (1985) The Landlord and Tenant Act (1985) details the responsibilities of landlords and tenants under assured shorthold tenancies. The document came into force in 1985 and is still used today. It overrules any other document. When it comes to hot water and heating systems, the act states that the landlord is responsible for keeping heating and hot water systems in repair and proper working order. The act also requires that the landlord keeps water, gas, electricity, and sanitation systems in the same condition. This act covers everything from gas fires and
  9. Contrary to Mr Bayat’s claim, the family’s rental agreement, seen by Bristol24/7, states that the landlord is responsible for providing tenants with heating and hot water.
  10. I disagree, if your letting a property it should as a minimum have working heating and be dry/ not full of leaks. It really is the most basic of requirements if your in the business of people farming. If they "went home" wherever that is which we don't know, then it doesnt solve the problem and only forces the next person into that situation. I know the area well and it's grim, some gentrification happening but this is only causing rents to rise, having viewed a flat in that area years ago I can believe the state of it.
  11. It was indeed obvious to me! I don't expect any evidence to come to light of any cheating FWIW
  12. I look forward to the evidence being heard in court then
  13. I wouldn't call him successful in business what with all the debt, bankruptcies, tax fraud and scams.
