My management style is that there is no such this as a stupid question. I see and have seen the advantage of this model. I would rather someone attempt to engage in a constructive dialogue than ridicule me.

    I think contractors need to have something like a union (note: like a union, but not a union). Something akin to the Guilds of old. A body through which we can present a united front to government agencies likes of HMRC on the subject of IR35 or force the recruitment industry to adopt some kind of self-regulation or even have a regular review of recruiters published, by contractors or engaging in Class Action Suits/Group Litigation Orders on behalf of members.

    I know that such things as collective wage bargaining is not possible for contractors. But surely if such a group/scheme existed one could have access to better legal services and similar through economies of scale.

    Perhaps something already exists, if so can someone let me know.
    There are some unions but they only allow naked fat lazy contractors to join

    That's your management style. On an anonymous internet bulletin board there is so such a thing as a stupid question. Different medium, different rules.

    If you are struggling on here, go ask an ill thought out and poorly researched question on Mumsnet for example. Then you'll know out right hate and ridicule. Try it on the immigration forums and you'll get insta-banned.

    You've had it easy here, believe me.

    I though this was the standard CUK insult and as heinous an insult that could ever be bestowed upon a member of these forums without offending the casual passer by?

    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.

    What??

    Specifically in General?

    I suppose they might lend you a truss if you asked nicely.

    Otherwise, abandon all hope.

    The professional fora are the place for serious questions.

    This is the bear garden.

    Do you like films about Gladiators?
