    WGS.

    Yes, they should pay on time, but the pay drought is just at the beginning of the contract. Once you've got a few of the fortnightly's in, it'll be regular enough that you'll not think twice...

    Just don't get this. If it's only a guidance tool and not going to be used, they may as well have put a recipe for rice pudding up for all it's relevance, no?

    Surely alarm bells should have been ringing when they offered automatic annual extensions at the end of 2003? Sort of shot himself in the foot with that.
