    Rumours of big contractor walkout at M.O.J because of IR35.
    If it's ATOS and its affiliates, this wouldn't come as a major surprise concidering how quick ATOS seems to throw contractors under the bus every 5 minutes when troubles brew.

        I've heard this for other companies too. Orders have fallen off a cliff.

        Buckle up folks, it's going to be a very bumpy ride.

          London has gone into full panic mode over Brexit.

              The belief that we won't crash out with no deal is quickly being eroded creating unprecedented levels of uncertainty and business planers hate uncertainty. I have not come across any Business projects that are taking advantage of the Brexit opportunity but the usual pre-recession cost cutting project talk.

                  It's not just London and IT, the whole economy is tanking UK wide:

                  telegraph

                  '‘Shocking’ slowdown leaves factory activity at a seven-year low"

                  I've chickened out of this one and gone perm, we are looking at a good 18 months of carnage including the April IR35 private sector roll out.
