What do we want? A proper review of IR35! When do we want it? Last year! Bunch of IT contractors protest outside UK Parliament

OldManBlueSkies

I was a contractor! I want to be a contractor! All of my jobs are done by little green men in mars now because they were cheaper(?). Now it affects the UK economy by taking all that money out of our economy and gives it to the martians. Mars 1 Earth 0! The government has affected the economy by selling us up the swanny again, the employment figures are boosted by the number of deliveroo, amazon delivery and uber cabbies after the retraining takes place.

What is the point?

It's like when the bailiffs come to us and ask for money. I spent it all.

Ever wondered how Google-less Android might look? Step right this Huawei: Mate 30 Pro arrives on British shores

Huawei are being bullied by Trump and as an act of defiance we should buy it. Also, I agree that our data is stolen as soon as any government agency puts it on their secure networks. They share the data left right and centre!

Isn't FB and WA part of the problem? I want to use my phone without MZ cumming all ove rmy data!

Chancers keep buying up dot-UK company name domains: Got a problem? That'll be £750 for Nominet to rule on it

It's horrid to get snuck out by these buggers. I registered a trademark and the next day I find that the .com is registered. I know it's my own fault but the nominet fees match exactly what the chancer is demanding for the hijacked domain. In a court of law the fees would be charged to the offender, but in resolution mode they charge the fees initially. Very naughty people. I however let them keep it. If they want to use my trademark I will sue them.

I'm scared

enough of this corruption. Just because he worked as a CIO doesn't mean he knows shit. almost all CIOs know nothing because they are usually from the old boy's clubs. Sounds like more money down the drain and we will have more IR35 implementations!

Well designed

to sack all of the clever people and replace with their friends and family who know nothing abut IT.

I'm glad that Jonathan Langley has the "cojones" to stand up to the bastards at this nasty place of modern slavery.

We should pay into a fundraiser if they try to screw over this fine young man. Surely we as human beings must stand together!

To be honest though, we are dickheads ourselves by becoming slaves.

We have human rights, and just because an amoral society tries to instill in us that we made a choice to accept these rules doesn't mean we did.

Sorry for the moral piety. I'm no better....but as I'm getting older I'm becoming less scared. What's the worst they can do? Make me use Facebook?
