I was intrigued by this story the other day of a wee girl setting up a table to sell home-made lemonade and then being pounced on by council officials for not having a licence! She has now received JOB offers and other offers from people and organisations to sell her wares at venues and events! I couldn`t help thinking....maybe we should take that entrepreneurial step and stand outside the job centre giving away free cakes and tea to all who pass through and saying we are `engaging` with the market place! Maybe a few work coaches would see the funny side.....

But seriously, it seems ludicrous that we have to use the internet and other mechanical ways to look for and find work these days, when all we had to do was set up a table and offer a service to the public!

Nah you have to have a sympathy hook too. In her case being a child. If we tried that sh*twe'd just be "scroungers scamming the tax paying public" :p

In America people can hold garage sales in their gardens without any fines or charges, yet here in the UK, you can`t sell anything without the snooper police knowing about it. I think car boot sales are still safe but you still pay the entry fee of £5.00 per car or something. On ebay, I think they even know if you sell stuff online and don`t declare the earnings for tax even if you are not a registered business seller? I`m sure I read that somewhere....

It`s becoming harder and harder to make money these days without having to pay tax on it or fall foul of rules and regulations.
