    Tax man chasing you every hour of every day.

    cheaper living costs + higher income available elsewhere
    What perks besides the money do you get on a contract hit anyway?

    Working in plain sight has to be a plus.

    “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.”

    Yeah, but then you can blame it all on the migrants...
    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.

    Don't really have that problem here in the IT sector unlike the UK which has to import lots of experts due to the dire lack of skilled people
