Overnight electricity output from renewables (except solar of course) is currently underutilised. The production in the near future of hydrogen at night from electricity sources that feed the grid in daytime will dramatically reduce cost against today's prices. The world will beat a path to our door.
IR35 is effectively an answer to the question "what policy can we bring in to demonstrate we are no longer the Party of agile business, entrepreneurship and light touch Government?"
Given that it will inevitably be crassly mismanaged too, it's a disaster waiting to happen.
I'm moving my business to Dublin.
Better, simpler, to either give the money to business, to pass on as wages (less admin, more dignity for worker) or stop in-work benefits & let the businesses who can't afford to pay people properly fail.
As it is, our benefit system is utterly unfit for purpose; go online & check what you're entitled to after decades of paying NI.
It's not enough to live on.
Far more people vote for left/centre left than for us.
Last GE we got under 30% of the potential votes (including TBP & UKIP as "conservative").
Labour, Libs, SNP etc got almost 40%.
These are voting population figures not vote cast figures.
We do not live in a conservative country; the FPTP system, with only one serious Right/centre right party & several left/centre left parties, gives the illusion of a Tory fanclub sweeping the nation.
The caller asked when my first symptom had appeared.
I told him I had no symptoms, and had been tested because my son had symptoms.
At this the caller asked about headaches, muscular aches, and other things (some of which I had) but which were - and are- not on the list of "trigger" symptoms to prompt a test.
I assume that this more detailed list only used (at that stage - October) was soundly based.
My question is, if these symptoms are associated with Covid but are not promulgated as "get a test" symptoms, how many transmissions are due to innocent ignorance of positive Covid status?
