    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.

    No. But I do remember a contractor (not PM - a midwife IIRC) being marched offsite and left in the street outside the office building when she was clearly have a complete delusional mental breakdown. And there were plenty of doctors in the building as well. That was really shocking - the NHS client said they had no duty of care towards a contractor. I guess it was good for her IR35 status.

    I've worked in seven FTSE100 and Fortune 500 companies and believe me, there were plenty of useless permies and contractors in some of those companies which wasted many millions on IT, you just rarely hear about it in the media.

    I've not worked in the NHS but have worked with an NHS trust in a previous perm role and it was a nightmare. It was one of the reasons I left.

    I don't think all public sector or not for profit organisations are the same. I've worked in two very good ones.
