    It's not an unpleasant role, just unfamiliar not to have a tangible product "I made this". When I did it before to a lesser degree with the same client, I was lead dev/architect/technical PM so if people were not performing (or I didn't tell them what to do properly) I had the last resort to jump in and get my hands dirty but it was a very small team. Probably that is my preferred position - doing some coding, designing larger parts of the system and delegating implementation to a few people while still being in touch with the "bare metal". But then I'm someone who actually enjoys coding... I'm one of the nerds who'd rather be locked away in a basement
    Thanks, intellectually we are so far apart there would scant chance of a total thicko like yourself and me getting on.

    As an aside, clearly you consider yourself bullet proof when it comes to IR35?

    Is that because you don't think HMRC will be able to find you in your basement
