When people use the "seriously ill" line to get mitigation, if they don't die within a year, they should either have to take the unmitigated punishment plus 20% penalty, or have their life terminated. That might stop the defence being as overused as it is.

You'll have to ask the Welsh leadership if you want to know what will happen in Wales.

Anyone noticed that wait times on helplines has plummeted? They say "because of Covid", they have had to furlough half the call centre.
Just so happens that doing so saves the company a load of money. I bet if it cost them money, they'd find a way to keep the same number of phone lines open.
I bet customer service levels never return. After a year, we are conditioned to waiting an hour in a queue

Always thought him to be at the lowest common denominator of the financial world - which is likely why he has done so well.
I think his site is mainly a place for poors who need guidance on obvious things and how to save 4p on a tin of beans with a coupon.

When you give up some of your personal sovereignty by choosing to work for someone, I suppose you naturally end up renegotiating every so often about how much/which aspects of your personal sovereignty you should surrender.
I like being self employed. I can take on a client or not and clients can ask me to help or not. Nice and easy.

Interesting that you seem to associate Rishi with killing goats and reading their entrails. You also seem to have blended his name to associate him with sushi.
Maybe people have a point when they talk about subconscious bias and racism?
People's beliefs tend to come out in their words or actions eventually - however well they think they have managed to hide them.

So glad I'm self employed - so I "only" have to pay for all this kneeling and wokery via my subs. Better than having to engage with it every day, do courses and repent my "privilege" at the altar I was made to build by the water cooler etc etc.
In the meantime, I will just go about taking my clients as I find them. Do the work, raise the fees. Rinse. Repeat. The clock sees no colour. Everyone gets billed. Hopefully that is still "ok" and not "not ok" or "not very kind". Sorry, I should have started this message with "Hey!".........I'm not even 40......

Tell staff to come into the office - they get hysterical
Tell them to work from home - apparently they get depressed.
Can't win - and they still want paying at the end of every month, rain or shine.
Covid is setting up the biggest skivers charter since the 'bad back' boom of the 80s and 90s - and that's before we get onto 'long covid'.
It's all a massive mess on so many levels.
