    It's Ironic

    I was chatting to the Registrar of Deaths this morning. Nice chap. Was a police inspector before he retired.

    Save the Human Race.

    Homo Brexitis.

    Or anyone who voted for Boris.

    That would sort things out within days.

    You could speak to them and point out IR35 has been delayed by a year. They might agree to changing your contract to a PSC arrangement.

    It's going to be tough

    Tonight I and two ex contractors are off to the gym and then to the village pub.

    I suspect this might be the last time we can do this for eighteen months.

    My neighbour's mate started doing this a while back. He was an IT contractor at Lloyds Bank but couldn't stand being a contractor at Lloyds Bank any more.

    You can pay what you owe them in instalments. Just sell the Merc, cancel your holidays, stop buying prosecco, take in a lodger etc etc. It's tough but it happens all the time.

    It doesn't matter what the students are doing with it. Now the EU give them the money. In future they won't. We'll have to give them the money.
