    Totally screwed with a tiny almost zero tax increase

    vs

    5 years of bench time, punitive Land Value Tax, 35% corp tax and 24/7/365 strikes?

    If you are on the bench, then why are you worried about 35% corp tax or even 10% corp tax?

    Tory Scum will increase CGT and tax on dividends, plus find other creatives way to fook people out of their money - they will certainly kill self-employment as it existed for decades, they'll give you (paid by business!) rights to maternity leave in exchange for making businesses pay 13.8% employer NICs when engaging you.

    Clients that hire contractors will care about 35% corp tax.

    No, they can find ways not to pay it, but they will care about 13.8% employer NICs on any self-employed person. Tory Scum certainly won't make self-employed people pick up Employer NICs, so makes sense for them to make businesses pay 13.8% instead of chasing 1-2% increase in personal NICs.

    And guess what, this is a legit business cost, so businesse would save 19% on it!

    Always remember - YOU've done it - YOU've vote for Brexit, YOU'll lead to new tulipe Tory Scum Govt at best and New Old Labour at worst - now or in 2022.

    I would not want to be working in this country in 2022 - I'll either retire or go somewhere else.

    So, you don't reckon IR35 will be applied in the private sector in the way it has been in the public sector, 12-24 months down the line.

    No, he reckons that with his near living wage job he'll take his chances against anything Tories can throw at him...

    Regrettably I think that is near the truth. I'm tempted to think it serves you all right, but I do still feel an attachment to the poor benighted land of Britain.
