Just a coincidence he was well in with all them during brexit aye Rolleyes

I mean it's not like he's switching from manufacturing cheese or something. Dyson deals with products that manipulate air. Hoovers, fans, hand dryers, hairdryers, it's all using air to do a task. Converting to ventilators isn't too much of a stretch.

It wasn’t about how difficult it was though.

Still not entirely sure the best argument for creating life saving equipment is “maybe they were cheaper” which seems to be the point Herzog is suggesting.

If you’ve been trading on a self employed basis for a couple of years I don’t think it’s unreasonable to have 3 months of ‘wages’ set aside.

That could easily be the length of time required for a hernia operation and recovery for example.

I accept the reality for many may be somewhat different but I don’t think the government are to blame here.

I don't think anyone is blaming the government, they are doing a decent job in what are pretty challenging times.

Rishi Sunak is very impressive it's got to be said.

I mean with regards the 3 month wait. Giving those late with their returns 4 weeks to get their shit together was fair (overly so?) but would inevitably lead to a delay in this being rolled out.
