    You're assuming banking demand for IT contractors will remain the same post Brexit.
    Assumptions, assumptions of continuity - that's what makes many contractors I've known fail.
    Can you not see there are multiple threats to the contracting lifestyle?
    I'm just glad I've made my money plus have the option of automatic working in Europe if necessary to take me to a nice early retirement.

    Anyone who thinks contracting, even in the private sector, is going to continue as it is has got to be either naive or stupid.

    HTH, BIDI.
    You assume too much. Yet that is irrelevant anyway (as I believe most of your wealth was from BTL was it not? Not some kind of crystal ballgazing power about contracting ).

    You can still be a rich idiot, as you prove on a daily basis.

    Who & where said things were going to "continue as it is" ?

    I've said;
    "Yes, and it 'might' not happen in any meaningful way either, you freekin genius" and,

    "You're not aware these 'changes' haven't been confirmed and/or implemented yet (so nobody truly knows yet)?"

    but neither of those means what you said, ya rich idiot

    Well if companies are all offering the same then you've no choice. These rises are only possible because contractors can simply move into the private sector.

    Anyway we will see, fact is a lot of contractors in the public sector have accepted a significant pay cut.

    Ok, you're right - they'll be no demand for IT projects, cos Brexit won't mean a change at all, to any of their systems.....

    Ok, you're right - they're going to want to hire a shedload of permys instead for relatively temporary work, with all that that entails.......

    I can see threats, but as ever - we adapt. Plus, nothing is certain yet - the finer details are yet to be finalised.

    Option? You always say you're leaving.......

    Yes, that and acknowledging that they know you rather than burying the evidence.

    Demand for IT contractors in banking has not been great for years.

    Mostly due to off-shoring.
    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.

    600 worse off under brexit, sorry to say the country is in a complete state but brexit will get the blame. I visited a local council offices 2 weeks ago and what I saw was so very sad.
    This country is in a complete mess.
