    Boomers tend to believe in “freedom of speech”, which is a fascist concept used to spread hateful ideas.Given that hate speech is not possible without free speech, any defence of free speech is a form of hate speech. - Titania McGrath

    Intelligent life would make a change round here.
    CUK forums are alive.

    The oxygen of forum members has been sucked from the IPSE pond.

    CUK forms are staffed with pond life. Not https://www.contractoruk.com/forums/.../pondlife.html . I mean pond life.

The Management seem to make no efforts to promote the forums, I suspect they'd quite like to quietly drop them.
    I was with CUK before IPSE and kept the same username for both. I ain't hiding under no rock...

    I have (had) the same name, and see no reason to use a Sockie.
    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

    Will keep the ipse top brass gamely employed on £200K+ (plus elected bod on 21K a year - 35k for chairman ) for many a year selling insurance , while they watch ipse burn

    Pity they could have stopped IR35 if they put there minds to it

    Good number
