Is it right to force people to go online?

Post  TP on Thu Mar 08, 2012 1:40 am

Do you know anyone not online?

Do you feel we are being forced more and more to go online and is it right?

The government have just made a decision to make all business people file their vat returns online. The only exemption is if you are religious and cant use a computer for those reasons?

There must be some people who cant go online or who simply have no interest in the computer and I dont think one size fits all.

I know libraries provide free access but thats still forcing people and you have to also be able to go when the library is open?

A know people in their 50/60 in manuel work who don't do computers, some have been self employed for years, I do wonder what this group of people will do with the new tax/paye going online.

I think it's dreadful.

Not everyone can afford to be 'online' for a start.

Also you need to now how to use a pc, not everyone does.

What if have a disability that rules out the use of a pc?

It should NOT to forced on any one, just as not everyone needs to own and be able to drive a car.

Where oh where are our freedoms to live our lives as we see fit within the law of the land Shocked

And yes I do know people who arn't online.
