That’ll Do Nicely

Northern Ireland economy minister Gordon Lyons with a pre-paid card. Not actual size. That would be impractical.

Bout ye.

This afternoon.

Via BBC Northern Ireland:

Northern Ireland’s High Street voucher scheme will open for registration on 27 September with the first cards being issued on 4 October.

The £145m programme will offer pre-paid cards worth £100 to all over-18s.

It aims to help those businesses in retail and hospitality which were hit by the pandemic.

The £100 cards will have to be spent by 30 November, with registration happening primarily through an online portal.

Why can’t we have a pre-paid card?

They always get the free money.

I know the ‘troubles’ and all but that was aaages ago.

      Apparently you only have to supply eight pieces of personal information to qualify for a card, a mere £12.50 an item to bulk out your profile when the authorities decide to sell your details to who knows where (and for what purposes).

    So they’ve given the Nordies a card
    In the hope that they’ll let down their guard.
    And share every detail
    To help prop-up retail
    Unless that’s a clever canard?

    Governments are doing a lot of ‘offering’ these days. Offering vaccines. Offering £100 cards. New ‘useful’ word obviously.

    They should do the same but for hospitality down here. Give every adult €100 to spend in restaurants/bars/nightlife venues.

    Might go some way towards getting that sector of society back to its feet after 18 months of government enforced closure.
