Try to apply for public sector jobs, the forms are horrible though, that's how I got out. I went down the volunteering route (1 year), been in this job for 5 years now with a family and mortgage with kid on the way. I miss my volunteering. Try to focus on getting a job, not fighting with them, they are just doing their job but I remember one person making me apply for 40k job, you do get unhelpful idiots though, I've met homeless people and people who have been in the system for 10 years, they just get them to apply for jobs but nothing else. They outsource to private companies so the responsibility falls on them, you can't win. Bit like in my current job... Focus on working hard and hopefully it pays of. These schemes are more political sometimes than helpful, like a job fare with no jobs... I won against 3 sanctions btw. Good luck!


No, he’s useless.


Do they have courses to help people spot fake news & propaganda? That's what we need more than anything in this country. Can't believe people still trust the Tories after they way they've botched handling Coronavirus. Almost 30,000 dead now (officially, way more in reality). Such a tragedy and avoidable.

I don't think they actually care. I mean I hit the right notes being a delivery driver for the food places, but really I think beyond irresponsibility parking on doubles and in disabled bays it's a free for all now. Why bother at all? Some folk need emergency supplies eh chemists, hey even grabbing up loaves from the shop is pretty essential right now. Especially for those stuck in a job and unable to get to the big supermarket shops during a shift (y) 🏻 good on them. Redeploy the staff where they are needed.

Jonwillis For tickets purchased from our website, mobile site or app (with the exception of Season tickets), we are waiving the usual £10 charge and all refunds are now processed free of charge. Advance train tickets bought before 07:00 on Monday 23 March are eligible for a refund providing they have not been used. It does state you should get a refund


Anyone else finding that Train operators are ignoring the Governments Emergency Rules regarding refunds for Advance Tickets? Last week I requested a refund for 2 Advance tickets for last Monday from Crosscountry Trains, that I purchased ages ago. They've just responded to say I can only have a refund if I buy 2 new tickets for some date in the future, then they will process the refund. Thats not what the rules say, and in any case, even if I did buy new tickets do I trust them to refund the old ones now that the travel date has passed? No, I'd probably just be throwing good money after bad.


Does anyone know if it is possible to get refunds on railcards please (e.g. the disabled card or senior rail card) while it is not possible to use them?

Jonwillis Please note that in line with our Passenger Charter, the price of an annual season ticket offers significant savings because it offers 52 weeks of travel for the price of 40 weeks. This means that if it is more than 40 weeks since your annual season ticket started, your ticket no longer holds any refund value. You therefore will not receive any money back if you apply for any refund.


Those who had booked a return trip with TrainLine can you please confirm if you were charged 2% off your refund? We received a refund but we're charged a 2% fee.

At least they wouldn't be all interacting with a parking machine... someone working at a hospital or someone going to the shops for vital supplies? I don't think making car parks free makes people go whoopy parkings free, lets all go out.

Strange - the Post says "Find A Will Discounted" and says nothing about viewing a will and probate documents! No wonder people do not understand - perhaps the Post needs to be more clear.


I wondered that initially, but it's only dead people - surely that should be common knowledge to ensure what was done with the will was what the deceased wanted?


"You Beta Find A Will" i think thats what it was trying to tell you


People can view the will you make, that’s not too good


Lot of people here not understanding the deal. Its nothing to do with creating a will. It's about getting a view of someone else's will and probate documents for £1.50 Personally think it's open to loads of potential fraud.

interest @ 1% on the full amount, i think. but then you can only pay in the limits.


ANd Renters also get this bonus too ? No? what a surprise .. .y1 - £4k becomes £5k, +plus interest y2 - £8k becomes £10k, +plus interest on 4k? or 5k? y3 - £12k becomes £15k, +plus interest on 8k? or 10k?


i don't think so, no. it's £1k for every £4k added each year. if you didn't pay in any more in the following years, there would be no bonus. so; y1 - £4k becomes £5k, y2 - £8k becomes £10k, y3 - £12k becomes £15k, y4 - £16k becomes £20k, etc.


If I have plenty of cash savings and my partner doesn't, is there anything stopping me sending her 4k per year to put straight into this so that we can max out x2 until we buy our first home? Edit: If the bonus is capped to 1k per year there is no real incentive to pay in after the first 4k? Or am I missing something?


used this to buy my house last month, and so did my wife. The £6k was very helpful, but it's only really open to folk with cash. we were lucky enough to be able to save £4k each over 3 financial years, and the final £2k was made avaialbe due to luck with the purchase dates.

I can afford to buy a smoke alarm and did have 2 perfectly functional ones. This is so much more than a couple of smoke detectors though.


It's really good, we signed up some years ago when the Fire brigade were at a country show of some sorts. I would advise anyone to defo sign up and get this. It's really interesting what they discuss and they took down my 2 x normal smoke detectors and fitted 3 x replacement 10 year battery ones (Got an extra one in the extension as he reckoned I have a lot of kit). The kids got to sit in the Fire engine outside for 10 mins if they wanted (as the brigade are on duty and could in theory get called out). Meanwhile, they discussed escape plans with me and checked plugs etc. round the house. Advised me to pull out the toaster out a bit when in use as it lives under a cupboard and I suppose the top of the cupboard could get hot. Also suggested I keep a spare old phone with a PAYG sim in it upstairs in the bedroom - say the power trips and the cordless one bites the dust. All in all very worthwhile and some quality free smoke detectors too! Why wouldn't you?


Erm, hot?


London do it as well.... It's just a shame it gets abused by people who can afford to buy a smoke alarm.


It's not in London so it's not real

Can you still apply now for 2019 - 2020?


Interesting debate, genuinely. I'm glad OP gets some help. Mental health can precede drug taking, obviously drug taking may not help, but can be what is know as self medication. If so, the mental health element is likely to override the 'issue' of drug taking. A diagnosis/proof for DWP etc is from a medical professional.


That’s because it’s nationalised. No shareholders to pay and no competition. So the chief executive just pay themselves the money instead.


Fully agree more than happy to support pensioners disabled or people genuinely need help but our broken benefit system creating more lazy ppl than helping divert funds to create jobs etc and help the economy that paying some lazy ones and sadly their kids what will they learn looking at parents on dole

Those Duchy of Cornwall biscuits must be doing well! Don't peddle that tourism lie, I have been to many European Republics to see palaces and state buildings, the fact that they executed or deposed their monarchy never put me off. As for our parliamentary system, a relic from a feudal age, filled with hereditary lords, bishops and cronyism. No diversity, same background, education and levels of sycophancy You will also find that monarchy has always objected to giving rights to the "common people" and they have usually been won after bloody insurrection eg Peterloo massacre. We have a better state propaganda machine than even North Korea. As for freedom, you have the freedom to do as you are told or to protest and be arrested or ignored.

The HTB ISA scheme closes in November 2019? The HTB ISA helped me and my partner secure our own flat. Was considering switching over to LISA but the fact you get a penalty if you decide to withdraw cash in case of an emergency was off putting.


For anyone who is wary they may need access to their Savings, please remember, HTB you can withdraw balance and interest without penalty if you choose not to buy a house, LISA will result in a penalty on your capital of almost 6% plus bonus you have accrued if not used for first purchase or retirement

Can a parent claim this? My wife works and is the main carer (who receives the child benefit). I am self employed and not opted into paying a pension contribution. Can I use this for my NI contribution?


To those who don't understand national insurance credits; most benefits pay one NI stamp a week. This is not a monetary amount paid to the claimant, it is a stamp that is recorded on your HMRC national insurance record for future State Pension purposes. Class 3 credits are not worth as much as Class 1 (paid via an employer) or Class 2 (paid if self employed) but they can help to keep a state pension up to date. This scheme is really only of benefit to parents who either work and pay Class 1/2 contributions, or who claim another working age benefit and already get Class 3 credits that way. The grandparent would also need to be out of work, or not working enough to pay NI.
