Liz Barclay, A former BBC broadcaster, has been selected to lead a government campaign to tackle late payments to small businesses.
Barclay told the Times “We need a real culture change around business payments. People who have already delivered goods and services have to be able to turn their attention to their next client and next order rather than chasing up late payments and worrying about their cashflow. I know from personal experience how damaging that can be to mental and emotional health.
“I hope to be able to deliver a payment regime that keeps cash flowing and works for everyone. A basic principle of good business, but far too many firms are failing to honour it and there must be real consequences for those that fail to do so.”
Landlords are, however, conspicuously absent from Mrs Barclay’s words and have had zero help from the government whilst providing the most essential of all services, a roof over people’s heads.
Even worse, they have had the opposite of help, government approval for not paying rent and not facing the risk of eviction.
I also wonder looking forward, when there are finally evictions what does a “new landlord” do when he finds out he is facing a tenant who took advantage of a landlord in the pandemic.
No doubt in this crazy world, he’ll get privacy rights and will be allowed to not mention that, and there will be £ 30k fines on landlords daring to ask or check!
