good for you, never let a virus get in the way of worrying about other peoples finances

Iím an accountant so Iíve been dealing with clients all day giving advice on what financial measures are in place to help them out. I just find it ironic as lots of clients have been ďcleverĒ in the past by under declaring their income being self employed. As a result they are now getting lower handouts from HMRC. Also the extra tax they should have paid could be of use to the NHS now and our general economy in general.

That we know about. They're not picking up all the ones who die at home or in nursing homes as confirmed COVID-19 cases so they're going down as pneumonia or underlying conditions. They're only testing people in hospitals.

Thought Iíd sign up for one of those groups which was apparently intended a resource to help vulnerable people, identify those who might need some shopping etc.

Itís not, itís full of nosey curtain twitching wannabe vigilantes who I swear are going out all day just so they can report on a family walking in a park, or a single mum taking her kids to the shop, or 109 other things where someone probably hadnít done anything wrong.

These people are literally the worst.

Coincidentally Rob, I tried to turn my phone into a makeshift gopro/head camera today. My first attempt was to tie it to my forehead with an old dressing gown cord. It didn't really work.

Although this virus is horrible and we have a long way to go yet, I'm hopeful tonight that we can heal our broken nation. Years of hate and division can be beaten by decency, care and compassion. Jeez, even the Tory party are coming across as socialist's. There is hope and for now I back the current government. We must put aside political allegiances for the good of the nation.

Nobody has given a thought to the thieves, burglars and shoplifters. How are they supposed to earn a crust with people at home and shop numbers limited.

Maybe the government could come up with a scheme.
