Bezos v Branson: Battle of the wannabe Space Barons as Virgin Galactic cleared by FAA to start flying customers
Re: Of the two,
You say that but Branson is now working with Rolls Royce and Reaction Engines on producing a engine for his Mach 3 supersonic jet.
It no guarantee but I could eventually this partnership being expanded to include the construction of a SSTO vehicle at some point, after Virgin Galactic has run it sub orbital service for a couple of years and is turning over a profit.
I also think it only a matter of time before Virgin Galactic is merge back with Virgin orbit.
Also someone other than me has got to be thinking Virgin Galactic and stratolaunch would be another good merger with such a aircraft capable of handling Virgin Orbit launches and possible multiple SpaceShipTwo-class suborbital rockets at once all with the same vehicle.

UK govt reboots A Level exam results after computer-driven fiasco: Now teacher-predicted grades will be used after all
Re: Too late for some.
Universities will now have to review their chosen students some pupils who were awarded better grades than their mocks will now have only their mocks grade which might not be good enough for that university. Expect a lot of changes and a lot of anger. Luckily for universities they have got a slight get out of jail free card in that the number of foreign students are expected to be low, freeing up spaces for english students this year.
Rip and replace is such a long Huawei to go, UK telcos plead, citing 'blackouts' and 'billion pound' costs: Are Vodafone and BT playing 'Project Fear'?
All sides in this debate is playing project fear card.
Fact is, if the chinese want to spy on us they are going to spy on us, Britain not having a huawei of our own going around installing gear on mobile networks around the world didn't stop GCHQ from hacking country wide mobile phone systems , it isn't going to stop the chinese. This is why GCHQ just don't about what equipment they use, they know if they can hack anything, the chinese can.

You would lose any such vote. No under the stupid rules you put in place but under rules that would be written by the electoral commission and where someone who isn't making a vote is presume to vote no, I might not turn up to vote but I have no problem with the technology.
Re: Keep a straight face.
I presume he meant cctv that is monitor live by human operators, who can then manually track the user across the area of cameras they have access to. In this way it no less intrusive than a live human operated camera feeds that are run by super markets and many other venues. Or indeed many of London own cctv cameras are now monitor live by human operators.

Is this the US simply trying to snatch him before the UK trial ends, thus they can maximize the pressure on him to accept a plea deal when in a US prison cell?
If he wins the UK trial. That will be a big stick to bash a US jury over the head with in any trial. An Lynch doesn't sound like a guy who will go down without fighting.
Also could Lynch team call Justice Hildyard to the stand in the US as part of his defence, I could imagine a Justice Hildyard would be better receive than some of the FBI witnesses.

The difference is plumbers and electricians are employed for small periods of time to carry out a job, often in a specified period of time, most of the time there isn't even a contract involve especially if they are working for the general public.
Many IT contractors are essentially employees who have spend years at a company. The company keep as a contractor to save money. That why people in the IT industry are scared and why electricians and plumbers aren't.
For A IT contractor that works like a electrician or plumber does, they should have no issue at all, they go into a job, do the job and the leave and the contract is terminated. These are relatively rare because most IT people need time acclimatise to the set up at a company before they become useful. An even simply projects can have long gestation period, much longer than your average plumbing or electrician job.
Most of the time, painters and electricians they come in do the job and go and are never seen again. This is targeted at people who spend years at a company as a contractor working under a contract that state for example that person as to be in at 9am an depart 5pm and 1hr break.
Re: IR35 idiocy
Yep, the one where the only thing that has been agreed is nothing is agreed until everything is agreed. Which is why it design so they can roll over all existing laws for eternity because that how long they know negotiations will take. Well at least ten years, which is a eternity in politics.
Re: "engage on a PAYE basis"
It just another job you have that have nothing to do with Barclays. Any income you derive from that job you will have to deal with yourself. Barclays won't be paying that company or have any interaction with that company. They will soley be dealing with you directly as a individual.

Everyone I know who left the public sector contracting left because their accountant said they would face increase taxation, not about the complexities of the rules.
Once they are in use in the private sector people will have nowhere to hide and everyone will learn the rules. I expect further crackdowns anyway and further rules or laws banning nonsense like the Lorraine Kelly ruling.
Simply don't try and dodge taxes, it not worth it in the long run, especially now HMRC enforcing rules retrospectively when it clear even to non accountants schemes are dodgy. I mean if someone lending you money and you not require to pay it back, it obvious something dodgy going on there mate!
