    Still want to vote Tories?? Sit back and watch the entire IT workforce decimated because the Tory party is being lobbied hard by the indian IT companies Infosys, Wipro etc. Tory cabinet minister is married to Infosys founder's daughter. Should give you all indication of what will happen if BJ gets in again.
    Vote Corbyn ! Save this country !

    Maybe there is lobbying ; maybe there isn't. I suspect you don't have any actual evidence.

    By contrast the Indian Government has been very open in saying as soon as we are out of the protection of the EU and start begging for a trade deal, they'll laugh in our faces unless we let them send half the population of India here. Vote Brexit and you'll probably have to learn Gujarati to get a job.

    No point working in a Corbyn world where everything is freee

Their statement was along the lines of... "Following on from the reaction of companies such as Barclays, Morgan Stanley and GSK, we have decided to blindly follow suit." I'd not give to much of a tulip but, they renewed my contract until March 30th on November 1st and I turned down two interviews once I'd got the extension paperwork.

    The choice we are now left with is go inside or go within the next few weeks. Oh, and they won't be increasing rates, either. They suggest "negotiating with your recruitment consultant".

    They have said scopes of work for engagements will be allowed but I very much doubt they'll engage with anyone's ltd. directly.

    No status determination sheet, no CEST evaluation, nothing. I'd ask for one, but knowing what they're like they will just tow the company line anyway.

    Happy Friday.

    Except it is not better off by much at all.

    Big fat free pension...yep
    Paid for sickness, including visits to opticians, dentists, doctor and hospital appointments...yep
    30 days paid holiday, plus 8 days bank holiday....yep
    Top level medical coverage for all family included....yep
    Free offsite training (for me about 3 weeks per year so far)....yep

    The list goes on.

    Enjoy being a permie without the benefits or long term job security!

    If they determine you inside, they have to give you the determination.

    Are you sure it's not just a policy change to no longer engaged with PSCs?

    Agreed - one can argue with a determination, one cannot argue with a policy change.
