What about the many many more 'refugees' coming back from holiday ?
We don't want them traipsing across the country , using public transport or taxis, and stopping off to get such non essentials as food now do we.
and the hotels local to airports do need the business .... or haven't they donated enough to the Tory party?
Nice big hotels with pop up testing in the spare space at airports before the folks are shipped there ...
They might even get to chat with people who have had a far more 'exciting' trip who are also awaiting test results eh? ...
What a wealth of information on the spread of the virus that would give .....
Update on SEISS (Self Emplyment Income Support Scheme) - my application refusal as I was not eligible as my tax return was not received by the deadline.
I contacted my local MP's office and they have been dealing with HMRC on this matter.
I was over the moon that my mum manage to finally locate the proof of postage from the 10th April and my local MP kindly sent this over to HMRC on my behalf. When I initially spoke to HMRC on the phone about this they indicated that as long as I had the proof of postage then I would still be eligible but in HMRC's final response to the MP yesterday they state:
"Had you provided a recorded delivery receipt, we could have tried to trace receipt of this document as we would have had to sign for the document. Proof of posting only shows when the document was posted and not when we received it. As previously advised, we cannot be held responsible for documents held up in the post. Our system clearly states that we received this document at midday on 29 May 20. I regret therefore that we cannot overturn our previous decision that Ms XXXXXXXXXX is not eligible to claim the SEISS grant.
I know that Ms XXXXXXXXXX will be disappointed with my reply and I am sorry for any upset this may cause her, but we must adhere strictly to the guidelines set by the Treasury department and we cannot accept a late return in order to claim the grant."
To say im upset is an understatement! Ive been unable to work for months and although I am eligible Im not.
Whats worst is that we have turned my parents house upside down looking for this proof of posting and the amount of time taken to write letters/emails has all been a complete waste of time.
Today is my final returns period they are giving me - Spent most of last night trying to find a decent replacement without luck so I think the only choice I have is wait it out for the magical revised part
Yes that's what I was expecting, so thanks for confirming that for me. As soon as the LBA comes through I'll just put those two points down and tell them to never contact me again.
May I ask please how they've breached GDPR? Is it the aspect of contact without valid reasoning?
Good idea BA, otherwise might have several issues to deal with, and bailiffs don't care if they get the wrong person to pay at the address they have for the named debtor, just hope that someone will if it were possible they would even try to get the cat to pay..

I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
I did and they took me upstairs.
I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
The cost of the items was about £40.
I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
I’m so stressed,
can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
