Illness, injury, life changing events happen to people all the time. Don't they deserve better in normal times?

I think you have got the wrong end of the stick - in my situation I don't need to go to the Government for help, if I was to I would be "Scrounging" OBVIOUSLY.

Your in a totally different scenario OBVIOUSLY, and you should be doing - that's what you pay you NI etc.... for.

Totally "Chalk and Cheese"

32 years self employed, fully up to date with tax and NI.

Always worked, never claimed a penny.

I work at large public gatherings.

My place of work has been banned indefinitely by the government, and I'm a scrounger for expecting a return from the system I've fully paid into my whole life???

What preparations should I have foreseen and acted on???

itís hard if you havenít got a fiddle or two, Iíve lived amongst it all my life but luckily never relied on it.
Iíll be working, whatever it is I have to do.
Others might not be so lucky and they deserve better, donít you think?

Me neither, the welfare system is in place for good reason. If needed in times of individual strife, it's there.

According to many on here the benefits system is akin to paradise in this country
Not so happy when they're faced with it themselves it appears.

Just my personal view mate, I have never asked for or seeked anything off the government in 41 years of working - I don't intend to start now.

You know as well as I do that many 'people' spend their lives looking after themselves with no regard for others yet now we have a time that it's all gone wrong their looking for support from others.

These individuals will immediately revert back to looking after themselves once this is over with their tax avoidance schemes while the tax payers of the UK will be paying for the bailouts.

This time could be an opportunity for many to see the error in their ways and pull communities together and help each other out in any way they can but a great example of this not happening is what we can all see at the supermarket and it isn't pretty.

I think you will find the Self Employed get hammered in other ways-

Most are not over the VAT registration level Ė so pay full 20% VAT on everything purchased.

All Self Employed also pay towards Civil Servant Pensions, but only get state pension themselves.

All Self Employed also pay towards Civil Servant Sick Pay, but get none themselves.

All Self Employed pay NI regardless of Income

I was PAYE for over 25 years, and Self-Employed for about 15 Ė I can say with all honesty PAYE is a breeze, your truly pampered. Until you have to stand on your own two feet and have no one to rely on, you realise this.


What did I do when I saw this coming, ordered/Stocked 3 months of materials/parts, so I won't be scrounging off the state.

You complete and utter penis
People donít want handouts, they want to earn their living as usual but worry their families will go hungry with a £90pw safety net to catch them if they fall due to government action.
So the tax we canít avoid, as you accuse us of, will we be contributing in the future to the reparations for those who were lucky enough to have their monthly outgoings covered?
Of course we ****ing will
If as a nation we canít share the pasta and bog roll, weíre hardly going to be able to do it with the wealth.
Banking and business needs to be secured, any idiot knows that. But without a stable economy the banks wonít survive... do you think the government are giving guarantees for (interest bearing) loans and Ďpayingí peopleís wages for the good of the people?
Itíll all be going back into their own and the bankís pockets anyway. Money is really just imaginary numbers that bankers and politicians gamble and toy with.
Services and products are the real things of value, it is the government and consumer who decide itís monetary worth. Hopefully this will shake the world up and advantage wonít be taken of those goods and services that are taken for granted.
Toilet paper seemed trivial a few moths ago

No I'm not self employed,but at this moment in time does it really matter.People are losing loved ones and can't even go sit with them in hospital to be with them in their last moments and your worried about what tax people have paid and what handouts they will get.What an utter disgusting human being you are

After the feasting will come the 'get fit ' and diet campaigns on the tele.

Can't wait.
