    But, I mean, you're literally arguing with Original PM. You said this:



    I think that's demonstrably untrue. I think there are fools out there who believe it, sure - there are also fools who...

    I think this is A) Overly pessimistic and B) Perhaps says more about your view on people than anything else

    No it doesn't, because you can say that about anybody doing anything. You can reduce any argument down to something silly.

    Yeah, we know eek. I think you may have mentioned it before. Good for you.

    It's very unusual and I'd not be happy with the terms you describe.

    Okay, I'm not really sure what you're on about now if I'm entirely truthful. You brought up a legal case, initially, but now you seem to be backing away from the legal argument.

    Of course not, I'd rather be sat in an expensive beach house somewhere without a care for money. But, ultimately, my allegiance starts and ends with my invoice.

    I think, as above, this is gonna depend on what you "do". More often than not, I'm interviewing with consultancies to go and work with their customers - in that instance, I'm not about to say "I'd...

    No, you'd be expected to refuse to do anything dangerous. I don't imagine I'd have any problems finding a sparky to rewire my freshly rewired house, put three way light switches in each room and...

    Sounds a bit like they're having their cake and eating it there, but I'll be putting "No" based on the fact they *could* have one of their permies shadow me or something if they wanted.
  15. CEST Tool - Does your client have the right to decide how the work is done?

    So, it's IR35 time with current client so I thought I'd better pay a bit more attention to the CEST tool.
