    It's only temporary to get out of crisis , besides immigrants don't complain that much. Oh and it's not 0 hour contract, it's flexible workforce, and people have a choice to go to work or not.

    Would YOU accept a 0 hour contract?

    Aren't contractors theoretically on 0 hour contracts? I mean, your client can quite easily say don't come in on certain days or at certain times, look at the furloughs that banks say you have to take, etc.
    If people like Rupert Murdoch, Nigel Farage, George Galloway, Nick Griffin and Marine Le Pen want Britain to leave the EU. Where does that put you?

    Theoretically yes I'd agree, one of the contractors here got canned a few weeks back. He was 3 months into a 6 month contract and they told him to pack up and go, no explanation (not that one is needed) but it is a stark reminder that is can happen at anytime if you're not up to task.

    Why? Do you think they are the wrong sort of jobs? Or the wrong employment mechanism?

    Do you think the 23% of unemployed Greeks, 20% of unemployed Spaniards, 10% of unemployed French and Italians would think it's funny? All those people trapped and struggling.

    I noticed that you didn't address my main point. That running a persistent trade surplus is not "good" and effectively exports unemployment to other nations.

    Well he won't address that for 2 main reasons. The first is that he doesn't understand it, and the second is that, even if he did, he wouldn't know the answer.
    For someone that complains so much about the UK, he doesn't seem to be in any rush to leave. A hypocrite in the truest sense.
