I'm sure there's a simple solution.AOB wrote: ↑Mon Jul 06, 2020 6:49 amI can't see the voucher scheme going ahead. Some businesses that don't qualify could claim it was unfair. And I'm guessing if vouchers are posted to every house they will be in easily recognisable envelopes and liable to "go missing" somewhere along the way. Administratively it will be a lot more complex than "every adult gets a £500 voucher and every kid £250" sounds. Probably in a gift card format, people will need to keep track of their balance so the Government will need to create a website for that and for people to report lost or stolen or damaged cards, and there will be balance disputes, complaints retailers not accepting their card etc etc. Banks and lenders have whole depts of trained staff to deal with work like that so nah, a Boris Government isn't getting something like that up and running.
Vulnerable people will be targeted, as it will obviously be known everyone is getting one. Controlling partners, parents not spending their kids money appropriately, people selling their vouchers on for cash...it's a non-starter.

I saw them when they supported Throbbing Gristle at the Crypt Club a year earlier. I wasn't impressed.
