    Anyone who thinks they may struggle to make any upcoming payments for Self Assessment or VAT you can apply to defer your upcoming payments following the guidance here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publi...through-deferring-vat-and-income-tax-payments

    If you're already behind with tax (Self Assessment, VAT, Corporation Tax or PAYE) and want to discuss staggering your liability because of Coronavirus then get in touch on 0800 0159 559. Lines are open 8am-4pm Monday to Friday but bear in mind the call queues are quite extreme at the moment with reduced staff who are self isolating.

    If you can't wait to get through on the queue then send a letter with your request to:

    HM Revenue and Customs - Self Assessment
    PO Box 4000
    Cardiff
    CF14 8HR

    My work won't be sending us home until forced to, lobbied for us to be classed as key worker ffs.
    Boy I work with has asthma and potentially getting sent home for 12 weeks. Why aren't the government reducing the list of these key workers, and forcing sites to shut, this would speed all this up.

    Some people are trying to warn folks, but no-one seems to want to know.


    Dear Sir,

    We welcome the Government’s action to protect public health in this pandemic. Extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary measures, but we cannot let basic rights fall casualty to crisis.

    The Coronavirus Bill contains the most draconian powers ever proposed in peace-time Britain. It contains sweeping powers to detain and test ‘potentially infectious’ members of the public, even children, in isolation facilities. It contains powers to shut down gatherings, which could thwart the possibility of protest against extreme measures. And it weakens safeguards on detention under the Mental Health Act at a time when people are under unprecedented psychological pressure. These powers require our utmost caution, closest scrutiny and the strictest time limitations. Two years without review is too long.

    The nations of these islands face challenges best when we uphold our values, not abandon them. This crisis requires the public’s courage and co-operation.

    We must be prepared to do what it takes to protect public health and save lives. But we must also protect the laws and liberties that are the foundation of our democracy, so that when this is over, we will be reunited with the freedoms that define us.

    They have changed it to 6 month reviews but there’s a lot that can happen in 6 months. Who knows what to think these days.

    As far as I'm aware the extreme draconian laws that were put in place after 9/11 and 7/7 were meant to be temporary but are still in place.

    I will be very surprised if these measures are removed in six months.

    Surely it won't only be a London only lockdown? If that's what's gonna be declared later, then if other places get really worse then he will be questioned on why not a total lockdown ?

    Personally I hope these emergency laws contain something that can be used on the wee * posting *, misinformation and bollocks on the internet.
