MM2 you can take some satisfaction that those self employed (taxi drivers probably) who have not been taxed on previous years earnings because of creative accounting or because they pick the exchequers pocket by renumerating themselves with dividends will be entitled to very little or no covid support.

wheres that knut minterd read and weep u moron, especially the last line 'and over the long-term we see the London economy outperforming the EU.”' London’s office market is set to awaken from its slumber. Values in the U.K. capital should jump about 25% over the next five years, outpacing other European capitals, according to DWS researchers. The price gap that’s opened up since the Brexit referendum will narrow thanks to the U.K.-European Union trade deal and economic prospects for London that now makes the city look cheap by comparison, the firm said in a report Wednesday. “Prime London office values since 2016 are down by about 10%,” Simon Wallace, global co-head of real estate research and strategy at DWS said by telephone. “That compares to major EU cities that have risen about 40%.” Brexit nerves have kept a lid on London office development, meaning the city faces a relative dearth of new projects in the coming years. That’s helped limit rental drops for the best new space even as the pandemic unleashed the worst recession in 300 years, emptied offices and spurred some firms to even consider permanent home working. Prime London office rents are predicted to recover next year, supporting future price rises for buildings as global investors return after the pandemic, says DWS, which is majority-owned by Deutsche Bank AG. That could keep total returns outshining EU rivals over the next decade, it forecasts. “It is fair to say that risks remain elevated and we are going to be watching the discussion around financial services equivalence with the EU very closely,” Wallace added. “But when you look at the fundamentals -- vacancy for the best space remains low; we are seeing less development; and over the long- term we see the London economy outperforming the EU.”

In fact I am beginning to think that the rift in the Tory party caused by the Europe issue wasnt the real cause of the problem. It is one of fundamental beliefs. On the one hand there is the Westminster bubble party who are no different from current Labour - everything is to suit the Londoncentric view of the world. They are all woke and all liberal and all desperate to be popular and keep their snouts in the gravy trough. Doris wouldnt have signed the WA if he thought it would have made him unpopular. He has no real beliefs or principle. Politically he's a nob. On the other hand there is a dwindling band like Brady and Baker with traditional Tory principles. Unfortunately whilst there ideas may be the medicine required they are not always the most popular so the other unprincipled self serving bunch dont want to know. We need a new party with a conservative identity. If not we are doomed. 'Doomed I say'

The City has to break free from EU rule, says Lord HillReform listings rules to turbocharge the City, says author of landmark reviewByMichael O'Dwyer2 March 2021 • 10:30pmBritain should use its newfound Brexit freedom to turbocharge the City after Brexit, according to the author of a landmark review into stock market rules.Calling for a wide-ranging overhaul of regulations which would slash red tape and allow company founders to retain more power, Jonathan Hill said that the country cannot simply wait for the European Union to grant it access.He said: "I think sitting here, doing nothing and hoping that somehow, one day the Europeans will give us what we want ...  is a route to being salami-sliced."Lord Hill - who served as EU commissioner for financial services until the Brexit vote - said ministers should get on with consulting on his ideas and that the EU is unlikely to grant financial institutions wide-ranging access to its market through the so-called equivalence regime. His review makes 15 recommendations, including changes to listing rules so that company founders can hold more votes than other shareholders. Lord Hill said rules should be relaxed to attract the "blank cheque" companies that have boomed in New York to London.... Full article... Daily Telegraph

Budget dayMARCH 3, 2021 POST A COMMENTThere have been many mini  budgets over the last year. Never have the official figures for the outlook changed so drastically so rapidly, as forecasters rushed to bring their estimates in line with the big lurches in activity created by anti pandemic policies. Today we await new forecasts from the Office of Budget Responsibility. We should do so remembering that they like all  forecasters were of course hopelessly wrong footed by the arrival of the virus. They will  now  find it difficult to gauge the pace of recovery and the sustainability of gr0wth against an uncertain health policy background and given the damage done to many businesses shut down by lockdown. In an economy where a 0.5% variation in growth was a big movement prior to CV 19 we have gone to a world where a 5% variation is modest.The lack of clarity and reliability in the forecasts provides a good reason why this is not the budget to raise taxes to tackle the deficit, as the authorities have no reliable idea of what the underlying deficit will be once we are out of lockdown and into recovery. Some are suggesting there is a gap of £40bn or even £60bn that needs filling by tax rises. Yet the forecast budget deficit for 2020-21 is £400bn or ten times the alleged underlying gap. Let us assume this forecast was too high and the 2020-21 deficit comes in lower than that. Who can say what the 2021-22 deficit will be when we need to know how fast the recovery will be in 2021-2. What we do know – or should know – is the bulk of the deficit this year is the result of the pandemic. It comes from a collapse of tax revenues as many people and businesses are  not at work earning wages and profits . There was ab ig fall in VAT on everything from  eating out to travel.  It comes from a huge surge in pandemic related spending on everything from furlough through the self employed scheme, small business loans to the train subsidies and vaccine costs. As soon as we get out of lockdown most of the extra costs of the pandemic will fall away, and there will be a surge of tax revenue.What we can also say is that were the Treasury to impose new taxes and higher tax rates on the economy now, or even propose such changes  for later this year, it will slow the recovery before it has properly begun. It will prolong the need for special measures spending, and lower the tax take. It will damage confidence at the very moment we need to encourage businesses back to work. Small businesses and the self employed include many who are approaching retirement who could decide not to bother to reopen. It includes people who were not earning a good sum prior to lockdown who might decide it was no longer worth the struggle. The brightest and most energetic will of course  be able to reopen and succeed even with tax rises, but we need a more democratic small business and self employment policy that helps the many who provide a good local service but who are  not going to be able to battle against heavy odds stacked against them by an overtaxing government....

Has every iota of common sense left the Govt? When times are hard do u let ur girlfriend Doris spend a huge amount on the redec of ur flat - and when the claim is rejected u put out the begging bowl. Is there nothing u can do to ease the flu madness? No it seems with ur henchman seeking out households - just as the fascists did - to find a possible carrier of a variant c19. We really have been conned. There is no liberty - and the penalty will be huge! NOBODY on furlough will get back to work!

Furlough extended as calls grow for quicker reopening Rishi Sunak planning for slow recovery with Budget spending, despite encouraging signs over efforts to counter Covid By Ben Riley-Smith, POLITICAL EDITOR and Sarah Knapton, SCIENCE EDITOR 2 March 2021 • 10:00pm Rishi Sunak will announce that the furlough scheme will continue until the autumn, even as data shows that efforts to counter Covid are exceeding expectations. Unveiling his Budget on Wednesday, the Chancellor will pave the way for tens of billions in extra spending by extending furlough and the Universal Credit uplift until the end of September and confirming further sizeable grants for the self-employed. The vast spring and summer spending suggests the Government believes that businesses will not be fully back to normal until the autumn. It comes despite new analysis showing that the decline in coronavirus deaths in England is around three weeks ahead of the central modelling estimates, fuelling calls for a quicker reopening. Mr Sunak will justify the decisions by declaring that he will do "whatever it takes" to protect the British people and businesses though a "moment of crisis". But he faces tricky parliamentary politics, with backbench Tory MPs uneasy about increased levels of spending but also resistant to the need for tax rises. The Chancellor faces a twin challenge at the Budget – continuing to help those impacted by the Covid lockdown while trying to get the country's finances on a sounder footing. He will reveal that the furlough scheme is to continue until the end of September – longer than expected – with millions of workers expected to benefit. Self-employment grants of up to £2,500 a month until April will be announced – as The Telegraph revealed last month – with a scaled-back grant on offer after that. The Universal Credit uplift of £20 a week will be extended by six months and a string of summer spending plans to support pubs, sport and the high street will be announced. "We're using the full measure of our fiscal firepower to protect the jobs and livelihoods of the British people," Mr Sunak will say in his Budget speech. "We will continue doing whatever it takes to support the British people and businesses through this moment of crisis." But that is only one part of the message, with Mr Sunak wanting to "level" with the public about the need to eventually get spending back under control. He is expected to signal a rise in corporation tax for the years ahead and launch a "stealth" income tax raid by freezing the £12,500 and £50,000 thresholds. "Once we are on the way to recovery, we will need to begin fixing the public finances – and I want to be honest today about our plans to do that," he will say. The decision to extend furlough – which sees the Government cover most of the wages of many workers sidelined during the pandemic – to the end of September is likely to be scrutinised. Under the Government's reopening roadmap, almost all lockdown restrictions are due to be lifted by June 21 at the earliest, meaning furlough could continue for months after businesses can reopen. There are also signs that the speedy rollout of Covid vaccines – more than 20 million people in the UK have now had a jab – is having a better impact than anticipated. Projections from the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Modelling group (SPI-M), pivotal in developing the Government's roadmap, suggested Covid deaths in England would not fall below 200 a day until around mid-March – but that point was reached on Feb 25. The former Tory chancellor Lord Hammond stressed that tax rises alone were not enough, saying: "Anybody who says that the challenge can be met only by increases in taxation, or only by cuts in public spending, is not being straight with people." The Tory backbencher Steve Baker told The Telegraph: "I'm trying to come to terms with whether the party of which I'm a member still believes in anything like sound money and balanced budgets." The furlough extension will take place in two phases. The Government will continue to cover 80 per cent of wages of workers involved in the scheme, up to £2,500 a month, to the end of June. From then, the Government support will taper off. It will cover 70 per cent of wages in July, with firms involved having to pick up the other 10 per cent. In August and September, the Government will cover 60 per cent, with companies contributing the extra 20 per cent. At the start of this year, the number of workers benefiting from the furlough scheme dropped to around five million from a high of 11 million. The exact estimated cost of the five-month extension will be revealed on Wednesday but is expected to be above £10 billion, with millions of workers getting the benefit. Business bodies welcomed the move. Rain Newton-Smith, the chief economist at the Confederation of British Industry, said: "Quite simply, extending the scheme will keep millions more in work and give businesses the chance to catch their breath as we carefully exit lockdown." Kate Nicholls, the CEO of UKHospitality, said: "Extending the full furlough support for businesses up to and beyond the full reopening date for hospitality is a very positive move." Mr Sunak will announce that the fourth self-employment grant of the pandemic will see 80 per cent of monthly trading profits covered, up to £7,500 in total. It will also be open to people who became self-employed in the 2019-20 tax year for the first time, closing a loophole and meaning around 600,000 more people are eligible. A fifth grant in some form will come from May, with details to be announced on Wednesday. However, it is likely to be less generous than the grants that have preceded it. Labour is attempting to exploit Tory divisions over tax rises by also saying it opposes increases on businesses and families at this time. Bridget Phillipson, the party's shadow chief secretary to the Treasury, said: "These changes to support schemes could have been made months ago. "Businesses and workers have been pleading with the Chancellor to give them certainty, but they have had to wait because he said it wouldn't be appropriate until the Budget. Announcing it the night before shows the focus is on Rishi Sunak getting his moment in the sun rather than protecting jobs and livelihoods." It came as Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish First Minister, said her Government would consider in the next week whether the planned easing of restrictions in Scotland can be accelerated in the light of positive data. She added: "I have always said if we can go further and faster then we will not hesitate to do so." The Tory backbencher Steve Baker told The Telegraph: "I'm trying to come to terms with whether the party of which I'm a member still believes in anything like sound money and balanced budgets." https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2021/03/02/furlough-extended-calls-grow-quicker-reopening/
