    And think all your problems come down to a really poor grasp of the English language.

      I can't help. Your English is so bad your post makes no sense. I am starting to think sockie. No one can work for a client with that level of English even if you are a coder.
      You might be surprised... QA software manager (permie) at my current client (multinational corporation) has at least 2 mistakes in every sentence. Makes me cringe, and I am not a native English speaker either.

      This is no joke! In addition to that he is completely useless! But has an MBA from a UK university... possibly the worst recruiting mistake in the history of that company!

      Oh and he uses ''the" in front of everyone's name when he talks about them...

        you don't hire an agency or an umbrella. They hire you.

        When you say the agency take 10%, do they then loan you the money as a tax avoidance vehicle? That's the only situation I'm aware of where 10% is taken from your day rate before you getting it.

          I kind of new there would be cases like this. I've also come across them as well. I think my comment was more a wish than a statement I think

              I'm from Yorkshire. English isn't my strong point either.

                You can always tell a Yorkshireman, but you can't tell him much.
