Re: Does this mean we get some proper rules?

Deliberately vague because the rules have been designed to try to catch independent workers, so that large consultancies (who like to pay their 'consultants' peanuts, and charge a fortune for the work) aren't caught by the rules.

IIRC, it was those large consultancies who advised HMRC on these rules originally, as they wanted to protect their profits, and independant contractors were getting in the way of that goal.
