Has anybody else received a form from the Inland Revenue about the expenses we claim as nurses? When I phoned them up, they wanted to know if I still worked at the same hospital, and if anything had changed. Not content with getting rid of us and giving the ones left a paltry pay rise, the Blair government will probably find a way of getting rid of our legitimate expenses.
I did ask why we could not claim our car parking fees as expenses, as most of us cannot use public transport to get to work due to our unsocial hours of work. I wonder if Mr Blair and co pay for their parking whilst working in Downing Street?
Final straw - the envelope enclosed for me to send the form back required a stamp!! I will send the form back, but I am not putting a stamp on it. I know its probably being petty, but why should I put a stamp on an envelope for an unsolicited letter from a government agency?
Anyway, rant over now. This is what happens when you spend the day spring cleaning and there is no chocolate in the house!!!!!
