    What surprised me was the fact there are 18 000 IT contractors in the civil service - wow we. 20% rate increase would be if the average day rate was £300/day that equates to an extra £1.08 million per day that is per day!! £300 million per year.

    He was considering it - he's on a pretty decent rate and figured "splitting the difference" was "fair". My view was that if you are outside (as he almost certainly is) then you shouldn't need to compromise. I believe he's outside 24 months for expenses, so that's not a consideration.

    He should get a permanent job there then and get a decent pension.
