I thought this was rather nifty:


Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

I have heard of a lot of people taking the piss out of some of the income support schemes as they are still working as close to usual. It's not really their fault as all the government asked was whether your business had been "adversely affected" by the coronavirus. If your business was down by 10% that would be true, however, the chancellor pays you 80% of your normal earnings so you end up 70% better off in this example.

Surely the solution is just to ask people to submit their downturn and then calculate how to balance that up for them?

If at the end of the next financial year I am up on last year, I'd pay it back voluntarily. I bet I'm alone in that thinking.

All of a sudden it's like the coronavirus doesn't exist. I don't know whether that's through natural boredom of the issue, other, bigger fish to worry about, or that the virus is genuinely less of a threat to us.

It's all a bit confusing to be honest.
