    Universal Credit explained: 9. Claiming if you are self employed

    Everyone claiming Universal Credit needs to report their self-employed earnings at the end of each monthly assessment period. If you’re expected to look for and be available for work, then it needs to be identified whether you are gainfully self-employed. This means your self-employed work is your main job. It is planned, regular and expected to make a profit. You must provide evidence about your business and earnings to your Work Coach, for example, your tax returns, accounts and any business plan. If you’re gainfully self-employed, your Universal Credit payment may be calculated using an assumed level of earnings called a minimum income floor. It’s based on what an employed…

    Irish Farmer Vs Universal Music – Foil Arms and Hog

    We will now hear case 742: Mícheál O’Conaill Vs. Universal Music Your honour I’m not a man to complain But for the past 20 years my songs original ones that I wrote have been robbed lifted whatever you call it by the world’s biggest pop stars And not one penny has come my way to Ballynahaunig. Universal Music how do you plead? Universal Music pleads not guilty. That these pop super stars have even heard of some pub singer in a rural Irish town is preposterous. Me hole!

    English Civil War: Crash Course European History #14

    Hi I’m John Green and this is Crash Course European History. And as we saw last week, Absolutism was in the air during the seventeenth century, but not just in France. Across the English Channel, King James VI of Scotland became King James I of England after the death of the childless Elizabeth in 1603, and he found himself thinking, “You know, I might not agree with everything those French Catholics believe, but they are onto something when it comes to the Divine Right of kings to have absolute power.” The inhabitants of the British Isles, however, weren’t so sure. In fact, Protestant reformers were imagining a different idea of…

    March for Choice 2019 – lower numbers & a big task ahead

    Our bodies, Our lives, Our right to decide Our bodies, Our lives, Our right to decide Numbers on the 2019 March for Choice organized by the Abortion Rights Campaign were significantly down on last year I would say probably less than a quarter of the number marched and very considerably down on the pre-referendum march, it was probably about one thirtieth of that. The reasons why are not that hard to understand a lot of people simply see it as we won the referendum and haven’t heard about or aren’t particularly aware of the problems in the legislation that Fine Gael enacted.

    ConstitutionUK: Crowdsourcing the UK’s Constitution

    Hello. Welcome to this website-LSE IPA’s Crowdsourcing the United Kingdom Constitution. The reason we are doing this is simple- the United Kingdom doesn’t have a Constitution. It has no formal rules and regulations governing how the place is run and we want to change that. We want to change it with your help. We’re not relying on teams of experts, we’re not relying on the usual Professors gathered in a room, determining what it should be and then declaring it and this or that, soon to be ignored by paper. We’re involving the British public in the question- “What should go in the Constitution?”. We’re starting with a public meeting…
