    Seriously though, an outside IR35 contract at £420 per day will take home nearly 2x that permie job. Can't see on any level that it's a smart move unless you really don't care about money, in which case why be an IT contractor in the first place?
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.
