Re: More tax revenue?

"One would hope having the real costs of being so reliant on contractors and outsourcers would finally force the public sector departments to sort out their employment and hiring practises so they can hire their own techies, but we all know that won't happen."

Of course that wont happen because that would be mental, contractors are not employees, contractors are there to fill short term requirements or to provide skills that the company doesn't need to pay for long term (eg if you need a tonne of work done as a one off there's no reason to hire permanent staff knowing full well that when the project comes to an end your not going to need them at the end of the project.
