Nope
Nothing compelling employers to allow this (even if entirely reasonable/possible) or they don’t want it.
It’s all guidance, suggestions, and waffle

It’s part why I find the bullshit ‘strong government honest’ slogans inserted into thread title by an idiot so strawberry floating amusing.


Yeah, it's honestly quite poor on the Government's part that they still aren't enforcing any of this stuff. It's seeming very vague still.


Not to beat a dead horse - but that’s why I found their 3 word slogans (a classic Cummings approach) so strawberry floating distasteful

Still at least ‘squash the sombrero’ didn’t get traction

OK, let's put this down to miscommunication and try again, then.

I'll unlock it for you. In return can you please not change the title to anything too morbid. We're going to have to discuss people dying, that's an awful, inevitable part of this horrible pandemic, but we don't need to put it in the headline. It upsets me as well, in addition to LightWanderer and probably others, seeing "die" etc. up there all the time.

Oki doki

I can’t promise not to be too morbid.

I can promise I won’t deliberately try to be morbid and if anyone asks will change.

People who've been doing a load of cash in hand work are about to get bitten in the arse.

I don't think it says there's a 3 month wait does it? Just that the policy is for 3 months and will be an average of the last 3 years?

They are saying it won't be paid until June.

Ah right, it wasn't in the tweet which was all I'd seen.

Definitely odd, and shitty, that there's a 3 month delay when some self-employed people are quite possibly living month to month.

Please don't encourage others to follow your line of thinking in putting people into boxes based upon individual posts, DML. I'm confident that most people will be perfectly able to make their own call on someone's character by looking at the range of posts they make here, without needing you to try and cause friction.


You could have just said 'correct'.

You will have seen that I rarely reply/respond to you, DML, because of a couple of disagreements that we had on the forum before. At the time, mods suggested that we simply refrain from posting to each other and it'd be great if we returned to that approach.


I just don't understand the need to be so cryptic. I have leavers in my family if that is the way you voted.

I think the whole ventilator thing is an absolute sham. Thats not aimed at you, but at the same time I have absolutely no idea how you can defend it. The fact you are even willing to would say that you did indeed vote Leave.

I wasn't - as I posted in response to Jen's post - defending the decision; I agree with the challenge. I would prefer that the government paid money to UK companies than to other companies but that just wasn't the gist of my post. I wanted Hexx to consider not positioning things as "Brexit voters" and "Tories" are "banana splits" when trying to highlight the purchase of ventilators; in my view it detracts from the issue and sets the scene for arguments about that rather than about the key issue.

Who voted for what in the Brexit vote of 2016 wasn't the issue and - once again - I'll ask you to stop baiting me about it.

Tories and Brexiteers are banana splits, though.

BBC news website wrote: The UK government was being hit with criticism earlier for not joining a EU scheme to get ventilators to the health providers that need them.

But it seems like it was just a case of the invite being lost in the mail.

The prime minister's spokesman said this morning that the UK was "making it's own efforts" to source more ventilators.

But this statement has now been updated to say: “Owing to an initial communication problem, the UK did not receive an invitation in time to join in four joint procurements in response to the coronavirus pandemic."

The spokesman says the European Commission has confirmed the UK is eligible to take part in any further procurements though during the so-called transition period after Brexit.

So, he adds: "We will consider participating in future procurement schemes on the basis of public health requirements at the time."
