    Interesting panel program on Radio 4 at 9am this morning 'Pandemic Ethics' where they discuss this and other things including stockpiling and using mobile data to track and also catch people not obeying isolation rules.

    Some people have higher than 50K income or are a ltd company so won't get anything, but (and I may be wrong) I would assume the majority of sole traders set up a ltd company because they earn more than 50K a year.

    I really worry about people who have recently set up as a sole trader, people who have been half and half paye/sole trader etc. A lot of photographic assistants for example work as studio assistants as well as freelance work. I feel these are the kind of people that the system will miss and are most likely to struggle. It's not ideal, but surely anyone on over 50K should be able to cut back and ride out 3 months (I know it may be more).

    They appear to be testing group workouts just now which could be interesting, or not!

    Unlike fake 'cures' and many other things that will have a negative and potentially deadly impact, I don't really see the downside to showing unity and solidarity. Many people cannot afford to donate money and many who clapped already do. They are not in a position to pay NHS staff more, but they can show support, from their own homes, which is also a way they can help.

    If the side affect is that some people feel smug when the shouldn't then I don't really care, it's bigger than that. They wouldn't have changed their whole outlook without a round of applause.

    That was great, if nothing else it will help with community spirt and seeing the neighbours. The couple working out in our shared garden/court were a little confused to start with!

    This is why it has been so complicated for them to work out a system I guess. I know several photographic assistants that don't have 3 years of accounts or if they are they are pretty low for example as they were done alongside part time work such as studio assisting.

    Then there are TV presenters, lawyers etc who may have massive income and instantly take home everything up to the cap when they don't really need it. Anyway, we will hopefully find out soon.

    I do. It’s non transferable though so I’ll only send it if you will use it. And yeah, I think you need to set up a new account.
