Hi peeps

Had my house skimmed a year ago guy done a terrible job long story


A year later all my cellings have hairline cracks and random cracks appearing on walls. Getting it all redone not a option

What is the best way to remedy these. I have been told make the crack bigger using a Stanley then fill with a flexible filler and then normal filler on top sand and paint . Some people say fill and then use mesh tape and fill on top and then sand

Can anyone give some advice please

I have attached pics
