    replied to Welcome to Gilead
    The reason is fairly simple. “The right to slaughter unborn children shall not be infringed” does not appear anywhere in the constitution.

    Whether killing babies is your bag or not, it is irrelevant to the Supreme Court’s decision. They are just saying it’s up to the States or the...

  • Don’t be such a Debbie Downer, there are plenty of outside roles out there. Not sure why you think the determination would be suspect, but if it is you are probably not on the hook. If you are it’s no worse than if you had caved in anyway.

    Not sure if I should encourage my fellow contractors...

    I remember when this was a board for contractors.

    I wouldn’t take a 100k job unless it was a six-monther, and I’m not even mediocre....

    replied to Electoral Reform
    Under PR there’s no way of voting out an MP who isn’t any good. Which is a bit of a flaw.

    Presumably you have to suck up to the present party leader to get to the top of the list, so instead of a healthy mix of different views within a party you get a homogenous bunch of yes men.

    replied to Tips on going direct?
    Find a really obnoxious agent (shouldn’t be too difficult). If the client hates them enough then once you have got the offer they will ask you to go direct instead.

    Or just ask the people you’ve worked with before if there’s anything about.

    I’ve had three or four direct...

    replied to Not a wind fall tax
    Second home owners, wealthy pensioners, oil company executives, landlords, you. This is worse than Rashford begging for free food for his tenants so he can whack the rents up.

    I’ll be handing back thousands through inflation so I’m already suffering....

    replied to Not a wind fall tax
    Am I supposed to believe that handing out free money to the undeserving and focusing it on the richest sections of society is being done to help people and fight inflation?

    If not, what are they really up to?

    replied to Advice for a noob
    You just hire an accountant to do the paperwork. Don’t stress about it or use an umbrella voluntarily.

    Glance through a book or online tutorial before the interview. If you get the contract then consider reading the book properly.

    It doesn’t matter much if you are any good...

    replied to Partygate (again)
    I am invited to the party at ClientCo, but not going because there’s that tiny chance it could tip me into IR35 and cost me eighty grand in extra tax. So, feeling a bit down about that.

    Not sure why Boris can have all these parties while stopping me from going to mine. He needs to ...

    replied to Partygate (again)
    Leaving aside all the coronavirus nonsense, how can they have so many parties? We contractors are restricted to one or two parties per year otherwise we have to pay tax on them as a benefit in kind. The “expert” says that even this might not be allowed if the company is caught by IR35 (which doesn’t...
