Scroll down for: A Home and Small Business Viewpoint by Len Tondel, from 1st July 2015

By way of explanation. The term 'home business' consists of two words. 'Business' is the second one; it's there to qualify and support the word 'home' and all that goes with it - and not vice versa. Consequently, we also list below, items which are of interest and value to the home. Whether in its context as an office or as a part of your family and lifestyle but always directed at the improved prospects and enjoyment that running a business from home, in its entirety, can bring.

For a current, multi-part overview of starting and running a business from home, go here: http://www.homebusiness.org.uk/features.htm

31.07.2015: Is the Calais crisis costing the UK £250m a day in lost trade? http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/jul/30/calais-crisis-cost-uk-250m-a-day-trade The problem is, it's not a one-off. French thug labour disruptions are as perennial as nuclear-resistant weeds, year in year out, ever since they betrayed and executed Joan of Arc. A more sobering thought is just how much is all of this costing the French economy which in turn, is being bailed out ad infinitum by EU taxpayers. It's 'Greece' all over again - but this time, on a truly massive scale.

Internet use linked to depression. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/07/30/heavy-social-media-use-linked-mental-health-issues-teens_n_7901616.html?icid=maing-grid7%7Cukt1%7Cdl1%7Csec3_lnk6%26pLid%3D369065 I must admit I certainly get depressed when I see all the crap there is on the internet. And the British regime is pretending to use it to produce successful businessfolk!!!

Bankruptcies at lowest level since 1990. http://money.aol.co.uk/2015/07/30/bankruptcies-at-lowest-level-since-1990/

EDF loses 266,000 UK customer accounts. http://www.bbc.com/news/business-33717916 They may not be getting the message, though. I had a re-programmed digital meter installed on the electricity post next to my house in France and now, about three months later, I have just received a second quality control telephone call from a whining babbler asking if everything went OK. I'm all right but my live-in partner, who relied upon a home, kidney dialysis machine, died seven weeks ago when the electricity supply failed. Which I pointed out to the first caller on behalf of EDF about eight weeks ago, who said he would get someone to look into the matter. (And no, they haven't been on strike. I don't think - although it's hard to tell, sometimes.)

Barter booms in cash-strapped rural Greeze since Nazi occupation. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/greece-debt-crisis-news-barter-is-booming-in-rural-areas-as-cash-dries-up-10427713.html That would explain why there is so much bartering in rural areas in other parts of the EU, as well. 'Nazi' governments.

Do we still need boycotts when you can send an angry tweet? http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2015/jul/30/do-we-still-need-boycotts-companies-social-media Below, just one headline - as not reported by the vast majority of the West's Israeli/American terrorist propaganda and Twatter alike, suggests the answer.

(Of course, the Israeli/American owned and controlled social media and propaganda would love you to just send a tweet. It's why social media was invented.)

Israel accused of killing 75 children during day of 'carnage' and war crimes in Gaza war. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/amnesty-international-accuses-israel-of-war-crimes-during-black-friday-of-gaza-war-10424085.html There's an unusual thing! Now - where haven't I read that so far?

Illegal West Bank settlement in Beit El torn down - as Israeli government approves plans for 300-unit neighbourhood 'swarm' in the same area. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/illegal-west-bank-settlement-in-beit-el-torn-down--as-israeli-government-approves-plans-for-300unit-neighbourhood-in-the-same-area-10425348.html 'Swarming' Israeli paedo-terrorists and murdering illegal immigrants land-grabbing again? To grow produce on free land, with thieved water and apartheid, slave-labour to compete with EU farmers? All adding to the confusion of the protesting French - and spreading: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3180169/Now-Belgians-Farmers-destroy-cargo-milk-blockade-roads-set-fire-xxxx-protests-food-prices-spreads-France-Europe.html - who then dump, waste and obstruct everything that comes their way, thus making matters even worse?

Asked to comment on 'swarming', Israeli murderer-immigrants, David Cameron, Prime Minister of Britain's '24% Regime' and arms-dealer to the Israelis, commented, 'My values are Jewish values'.

'Those who suffer racism must not suffer in silence.' http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/antisemitic-incidents-in-britain-have-risen-by-50-per-cent-in-the-last-year-report-finds-10426542.html It appears that every time these days that the West's Israeli/American media discusses racism, it's actually about the rise of anti-Semitism. Perhaps the solution is simply twofold. Let the world's decent Jewish majority take out and dispose of their Israeli trash which is the root cause of growing anti-Semitism. (Or, 'anti-terrorist sentiment.) And when we talk about 'racism' let's talk equally about the blacks, the Muslims and 'swarming' economic refugees, as well.

That being said, the world should consequently be able get on with some honest, productive business, for a change.

Ungrateful bastards.

BBC looks to 8 – 14 years olds for the next generation of entrepreneurs. http://www.bmmagazine.co.uk/news/bbc-looks-to-8-14-years-olds-for-the-next-generation-of-entrepreneurs/ Is it going to identify the little buggers with manners and respect, and who do reeding, riting and summs, as well?

Calais crisis: French police claim they overwhelmed. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/11769718/Calais-crisis-live.html The French police are 'overwhelmed' the moment they have to issue more than one fine per car, per day. Perhaps the previous French regime should have born all this in mind before sticking their shit-stirring snouts into 'The Arab Spring' countries and their subsequent murderous invasion of Libya and assassination of their old mate, Colonel Gaddafi. Countries which at the very least, weren't prone to producing millions of displaced refugees all heading for Europe just because France was desperately trying to re-assert its influence in the region. (Amply aided and abetted by the rest of the EU and The USA, of course.)

Framework for changes to IR35 announced. https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/intermediaries-legislation-ir35-discussion-document HMRC has published details of proposals to improve the effectiveness of the IR35 tax rules, which were introduced in 2000 to prevent people avoiding tax by working through an intermediary such as a Personal Service Company (PSC). HMRC is proposing various options for change, such as treating some people who work through a PSC as direct employees and requiring them to be taxed as such. HMRC is inviting views about how such an approach would work in various situations, and whether the proposed IR35 reforms would achieve their objectives. The deadline for responses is 30th September 2015. (EnterpriseQuest)

Battle over 'secret sauce' hits French restaurants. http://money.aol.co.uk/2015/07/27/battle-over-secret-sauce-hits-french-restaurants/ Is this the 'secret sauce' which makes third-rate French cyclists climb mountains faster than whole teams of the best 'doped-up' (non-French and according to the French) bike riders in the world? Without any questions from the French media's infantile panels of dopers and charlatans posing as experts on why the French can't win anything? Except by cheating and then pretending not to?

GRAVY TRAIN COMING (http://ezinematters.com/)

Those marketeers for multi-national companies whose products are deemed unsafe, unhealthy or over-priced can celebrate the result of the recent EU vote on the secret Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreement (TTIP) between the USA and Europe.

The European Parliament voted last week in favour of the agreement by a majority of 436 to 241 This agreement includes the right for corporations to sue governments for trading losses, if these are a result of government legislation, even if the legislation has been put in place to protect the public's safety, health or their pockets.

The amount of money potentially involved has caused some cynics to wonder if a large number of MEP's have taken large cash bribes to support what is seen as the most indefensibly anti-consumer agreement ever conceived, particularly as it will be the country's taxpayers that will pick up the cost of any compensation awarded, plus legal fees.

The agreement binds the USA and European member states, and could well give those who oppose the UK's membership the most persuasive reason for pulling the UK out of the EU.

And of course, we know it's a gravy train because Ingerlandt's Israeli/American media has given virtually no space to this latest, dangerous carve-up of consumer rights and healthy competition. Plus of course, ALL of The 24% Regime's fags voted for the new deal so that's a cast-iron guarantee that TTIP will be as bent as all its predecessors have been.

Still, let's get back to Top Gear, shall we?

21.07.2015: Self-employment numbers fall. http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/lms/labour-market-statistics/july-2015/statistical-bulletin.html According to the latest figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the number of self-employed people in the UK has fallen by 131,000 compared to a year ago. In March to May 2015, there were 4.47 million people in the UK who were self-employed, down from 4.6 million during the same period in 2014. Chris Bryce, Chief Executive of the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed (IPSE) said: "Today's figures show a significant fall in the number of self-employed people working in the UK. This sector is absolutely crucial to the economic success of the UK, and government should consider ways it can better support people who work for themselves." (EnterpriseQuest)

20.07.2015: Lord Young: It’s never been easier to start a small business. http://www.bmmagazine.co.uk/newswire/lord-young-its-never-been-easier-to-start-a-small-business/ What a load of bollox, even allowing for the present regime's propensity for puerile propaganda. I would have thought that Lord Young is old enough to remember the days, 65 years ago or so, when millions of post-war refugees (like my parents), kicked off literally penniless with scarcely a working grasp of the language, to start their own businesses. (Not that Lord Young himself has ever had any meaningful contact with small business start-ups and growth.)

No loans, mortgages, overdrafts or credit cards, (no bank accounts in many cases); no 'mentors' (or any business support whatsoever); no phones - let alone dummyphones; no internet, no social media, very few cars or vans, no insurance, no VAT or business registration, no hounding by the taxman or other assorted, official spammers and scammers. Believe me, it only went downhill after that.

Yet a significant number of those businesses not only survived but became household names. Whereas the more humble, modest majority contributed to the country's wealth, created jobs and developed a business environment which allowed many others to follow in their footsteps. Until a rash of recent governments with their entrepreneurial visions provided by self-styled American 'gurus' and the internet came along and made nothing but start-up statistics the currency of their day, wrapped up in enough propaganda about red tape, new posts, initiatives and programmes to have made Lenin blush with pride.

Of course, what Lord Young's propagandashitewriters are probably depending upon is that the audience they are addressing won't know about 60 years ago and so he will be on pretty safe ground with the majority of Forums for Morons. And his 24% Regime's business backbone of Fags For Israel.

Iran hopes to welcome 20 million tourists a year following nuclear deal. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/middleeast/iran/11741074/Iranians-more-than-eager-to-welcome-tourists.html. The trick will be to keep the adjacent terrorist state of Israel and its nuclear weapons of mass destruction under control. If that can be achieved, preferably with applied sanctions and regime change, good news from the Middle East could trickle down to every small business around the world. I'd also expect a similar bounce in trade with Russia before too long, as Obama has just taken the first step in trying to thaw relations there. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/11740700/Barack-Obama-praises-Putin-for-help-clinching-Iran-deal.html

Chancellor to consult on devolving Sunday trading laws. http://www.acs.org.uk/budget-chancellor-to-press-ahead-with-harmful-and-unnecessary-sunday-trading-changes/ George Osborne has promised to consult on whether Sunday trading laws should be decided on a local basis. In supporting documents published as part of the Summer Budget, Mr Osborne explained that the consultation will 'ensure that local areas have a greater say over their own economies'. In contrast, the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS) has warned that relaxing Sunday trading laws would 'displace trade from small stores' and described plans to do so as 'unnecessary, complicated and harmful'. At the time of writing, consultation details have not yet been released. (EnterpriseQuest)

The Housing Growth Partnership was launched on 6th July 2015 and will receive £50 million from Lloyds Banking Group, which will be matched by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). It is expected to make around 50 individual investments of between £500,000 and £5 million each. (EnterpriseQuest)

Of course, it's not just British drivers who are going to be faced with renewed costs. Every taxpayer in the EU will have to foot the bill, as always. Especially if water-hungry corn has to be imported from slash-and-burn Amazonian forest farms. Some eco-friendly footprint that's going to be.

On the other hand, without 'official statistics', politicians would find it difficult to fuel their propaganda machinery and so we have already seen an increasing drift by the present regime to statistics furnished by crony, self-interest groups.

Cameron urged to tackle French 'thug rule' blocking British lorries at Calais. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3151213/Cameron-urged-tackle-mob-rule-militant-Frenchmen-causing-chaos-British-lorry-drivers-Calais.html With just the present dispute already costing Britain alone £1 billion - let alone the rest of Europe and above all, millions of honest, law-abiding, non-skiving French themselves who have to suffer this legalised, brownshirt fascism on almost a weekly basis - isn't it about time our fagging government simply blockaded all French imports into the UK for a corresponding period of time? Easily done and guaranteed to have the callow, pro-thug and pro-Israeli terrorist French regime roaring their eyes out overnight.

How to end the Calais farce? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-3150452/How-end-Calais-farce-lorry-drivers-public-boycott-Channel-Tunnel-says-PETER-MCKAY.html Any regular traveller with any sense has been boycotting Calais for years anyway and it's made no difference. The problem is that French governments condone this kind of fascist, criminal activity. Ergo. Target the French government.

They might even organise another hashtag hypocrite 'manif' of 'millions' of dummyphone sheep to take to the streets in support of a decent cause, for a change. If someone could explain to them what that meant.

IR35 rated 'complex' by OTS. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/office-of-tax-simplification-complexity-index and https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-examines-support-for-self-employed The Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) has rated IR35 as one of the most complex taxes for both small firms and HM Revenue & Customs. It also estimates that abolishing IR35 would cost the Treasury up to £500 million. This figure was described as 'worrisome' by ContractorCalculator, which has welcomed David Cameron's announcement of an independent review into self-employment to be published next year. CEO Dave Chaplin said: "This review should educate policymakers about the steps they need to take to sustain and grow that competitive advantage by removing red tape and reforming overly complex tax legislation, such as IR35, that impacts negatively on contractors."

Draft health and safety regulations for the self-employed. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukdsi/2015/9780111136980 The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published draft regulations to remove certain self-employed people who do not employ others from the scope of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. If made law, the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (General Duties of Self-Employed Persons) (Prescribed Undertakings) Regulations 2015 will exclude the self-employed unless their work falls within a prescribed category or poses a risk to a third party. Prescribed categories include agriculture, construction, railways and work involving asbestos, gas or genetically modified organisms. The new regulations are expected to come into force on 1st October 2015. (EnterpriseQuest)

Ofcom action plan to improve broadband. http://media.ofcom.org.uk/news/2015/smes-research-jun15/ Ofcom has published an action plan that sets out the next steps to improve broadband services for small and medium-sized firms. Almost half of firms surveyed on the regulator's behalf last year did not have access to a superfast broadband connection, rising to 84% in rural areas. In addition, 15% said that poor communication services were hampering business growth. Although superfast broadband coverage is expected to increase significantly over the next two years, Ofcom estimates that 18% of firms will still be without access in 2017. (EnterpriseQuest)

Just like the Greeks, it's a bit late to start worrying now about what the country's spivs have been getting up to. The writing has been on the wall for the buy-to-let Ponzi scheme for ten years now and the present regime, aided and abetted by every 'get-rich-quick' conman (and Tory voter) in the country, has milked the 'fashion' for every penny.

On the other hand, it could be argued that all it was interested in were lashings of dodgy start-up figures from its online cronies to help its propaganda drive in the run-up to the recent elections.
