IR35 stopped tax avoidance...

... nope, just pushed people to EBT's, now that's tax avoidance.

I was contracting before 2000, I had three life destroying years as a permie, then went back to contracting and never looked back.

Paris, because the rich and poor don't pay tax, just the working class.

April Fools?

Surely this is all bullshit, because any bank that send unencrypted sensitive data via email should be heavily fined by the regulators.

I really hope the people who actually think the "recall" feature in Exchange (ONLY) is actually any use in this scenario, aren't working in IT, because that kind of stupidly we really could do without.
