    UK rates are the absolute pittance, I refuse to speak to agents about contracts in the UK due the ridiculous sums although I do work there but via a US company and then we charge an arm and leg, particularly when doing an offshoring project
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    To whom exactly? The agents charging clients yesterday's rates and paying contractors tomorrow's weak pound perhaps...
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Don't you worry, after Brexit, ex-Army Catering Corps will be in great demand working down at the foodbank...

    The airfares there and back every weekend however, are not cheap. And those need to be factored in. That alone adds about half a bag of sand to a weeks expenses, so the hotel costs barely enter into the equation.
