    No you can't vote against candidates in non-democratic election. Von der Leyen very nearly didn't get voted in. That would not happen in a token election. It's comparable with a confidence vote in...

    From what the OP said, it wasn't the agency, it was the client who offered a contract for 6 months with a budget for 3 months. All the agency needs is a contract from the client, it's not up to the...

    Yes but your contract did have a notice period. If it hadn't or was unclear you would have a case. It would be very difficult to argue you didn't think they could serve notice when it is standard...

    Yes but the uncertainty is in writing i.e. you were informed in writing that the contract could be cancelled. If the client co offered a 6 month contract to the agency then your case would be very...

    The contract has a notice period, that can be used from both sides. If they held to their notice period you have no recourse.

    Contractors and agents give notice on contracts all the time. If there...

    Indeed a 4% drop in one month and still a few months from a no deal Brexit. Given the scale of redundancies now going on in the City, hardly surprising.

    Housing crashes don't happen because the population suddenly plummets and everyone leaves their houses. Housing crashes occur when there is a recession usually combined with rising interest rates.

    Leaving cash in the company is a good idea as you can pay dividends when you're not working and probably reduce the amount of tax you pay. You may want to invest it though.

    I would try and complete your contract with company A, just because you might want to go back at some point; leaving early is no problem but will probably exclude you from future contracts.
