"If it's like you say why haven't you been freelance yourself? Altruism? Don't have anything good enough to sell?"
But isn't this a (stupid) answer to all complaints about corruption? If it's so easy to go round nicking stuff, why don't you stop work and go round nicking stuff? Maybe people don't want to burn down society, but stop others from taking the piss instead. Not everyone is a psychopath/libertarian.
In my case I'm not a tax-avoiding contractor because
1) it is morally reprehensible to avoid as much tax as humanly possible, and
2) almost all industries don't really have contractors anyway, just IT, newsreading apparently, and other people on the telly.
