      Everyone "in senior management" maybe.

      I am sure that there are many long-suffering techies who don't deserve to be in the firing line.

    WTF

    10 Billion. ... For what? That's my ******* taxes your spending HMRC. And then you ring me up and question me about bank interest on a bank account while you piss money down the drain.

    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!
