    From my POV it was more a case of conversation based on people just taking a test when not needed which is human nature and becAuse of mixed messages. The avoiding work part hadn't hit my mindset that doesn't make sense TBH. Taking a test doesn't mean you have it so not sure taking a test helps with that.

    I think people just feel they need to take a test when they potentialy dont need to because naturally want to know

    If your not expecting someone else to pick up the bill go for it. Im 53 and work part time in a hobby job for something to do. Im not asking for money off anyone.

    If you dont want to work to hard that is your prerogative and you work hard when your young to earn that right. But you also cant moan if people take more holidays then you or drive a nicer car.

    Yes, being productive should be a civic duty and so should paying the right amount of tax. Tax avoidance is the preserve of the rich in any meaningful sense, sadly. So one group need to met their social obligations, but not the other.

    You never bought Duty Free in your life? Put money into an ISA? Paid into a pension fund? Ever bought a house that went up for sale just under a Stamp Duty border?

    If I did it wouldn't be tens to hundreds of thousands of pounds worth, being PAYE I have little scope for that. Some corporates and rich individuals pay next to no tax, thanks to your local Tory government, it's all part of their neo liberal dream. These people have the temerity to have a go at so clalled 'scroungers' and 'lazy British workers.' IMHO, they have something of a credibility gap.

    I disagree. Their tax liability is what HMRC can prove beyond doubt, in court, that they owe. No more, no less - that's been established time and time again.

    Do you ask you employer to donate extra chunks of your salary to HMRC?

    Ha, that is only because the tax laws are rigged to make it easy for the parasitic clams. That is my whole point, it is a rigged game, rigged against ordinary British PAYE workers PAYE have to pay more and services go into decline. That it oh so moral isn't it?

    Sounds like a second lockdown incoming just as Furlough finishes.

    May wobble a few heads.

    I've been working remotely all the way through since Feb/March.. Any of my colleagues on furlough are desperate to get back to work. Not sure what you're insinuating.

    I don't see a blanket lockdown TBH

    London has been relatively low for the rate increasing because the city is dead and people are staying local unlike the North where people tend to live and work more centrally.

    I would be shocked if they don't try and get London workers back to test the infection rate before a new blanket lockdown

    Common sense? Human nature? Beaches? Parks?

    Pretty naive if think other wise.

    It's pretty sad and cynical for you to view people that way.

    Being on 80% wages has likely put many under big financial stress, especially those who live pay to pay.

    The overwhelming majority on furlough are desperate to get back working.
