    It was agency bulltulip. They were trying to squeeze £25 to go in their back pocket. Nothing to do with the client.

    The 'special provision' crap was to save face. They're not exactly going to admit they were trying it on, are they?

'I ain't getting on no site without no contract fool!"
    Me too. If I go on site, then 2 days later agency will not change the contract, I have pretty much zero confidence that I'll be able to go telling tales to the client.

    + 2 days billing to factor in, i would rather spend those days at home instead of taking a punt at a client, no contract = no work for me every time.
