    Yes, to which Labour's plan seem to be making employing people and utilising the flexible workforce even more risky, difficult and expensive, so such work will go offshore. Clever, isn't it......

    "My Lot"? How many times do I have to say that I have no faith in "my lot" in its current iteration. They are a waste of time.

    Equally, we are about to replace them with something infinitely worse - on past history at least - with no idea what they represent other than...

    And that letter was saying something that was entirely wrong and irrelevant to the debate in question. Regardless of who wrote it.

    Still, if you can't understand the thrust of the problem with Rayner, or insist that only your perspective is the right one, then there's no point discussing...

    Yet again, missing the whole point. It's not about her background, or anyone else's.

    Were Rayner commenting on anyone else facing the same as yet unproven accusations, she would again be screaming that they resign....

    I said "some commentators", aka full time contractors several of whom I know personally - on LinkedIn among others. I'm not that interested myself in anything other than a general way, an as eek says have little real visibility of the problem.

    Truss you may remember, was going...

    Because according to some commentators, because OPW is driving companies to move to FTCs rather than risk using contractors.

    As you say I'm out if the game, so perhaps take a wider perspective......

    No and as far as we are concerned that is directly down to the off payroll rules as presently defined distorting the market for freelance workers. It remains to be seen if the latest amendment to taxation make a difference.

    Our economy isn't good, but it is better than an awful lot of...

    If you look at the actual numbers, the British economy is actually in fairly good shape compared to, let's say, Germany and France. Truss's "crashing" has been more than corrected.

    Of course, the carryover from that "crash" are still with us in terms of the cost of living...

    There's lots on Starmer from never-ending U-turns, constant inaccurate claims like "crashed the economy" in the face of evidence to the contrary (even the IMF is offering some now) no clarity on his overall objectives and even his very own lockdown party. Nobody seems to be very interested...

    I don't remember where I read it, but it wasn't made up.

    That is, however, not the whole point of the discussion. Do we want a potential deputy PM who thinks they don't have to tell the truth. That is the question......

    No evidence you would accept perhaps.

    BBC reported 12 days back that Manchester police found no evidence of wrongdoing. That was challenged by an MP and they are re-examining the case. The MoS has solid evidence if her actual position which varies from her stated position and makes the...

    You miss the point. Its not about tax its about hypocrisy. Or doesn't that matter any more? Dunno about you but I'm peed off with politicians who say anything to avoid being held to account. You want to govern me... then be f***ing honest about your actions....

    Standard politicians' answer. Ignore the question and talk about something unrelated. We will have two senior MPs at the top of government who refuse to answer a fairly key question of their commitment to honesty. Heigh ho...

  • That's rather the key point - and was highlighted at the time. While the return may have looked similar (it wasn't, the best a Ltd Co can hope for is about 73% unless you are doing something "imaginative", against 80-85% for the schemes) the remainder of the gross income was not going to HMRC,...

    Perhaps if they use their profits to improve the infrastructure before paying out large divis to the shareholders, they would not be in such a mess in the first place. Thatcher's original (if somewhat optimistic!) idea was to privatise to incentivise competition and hence performance, not enrich private...
