Re: HMRC is badass, HMRC don't give a sh*t

Didn't IR35 cause an exodus of contractors from the HMRC meaning that many of its own projects went TITSUP?

An exodus threatened, so HMRC declared all contractors working on contract on HMRC projects exempt from IR35. This in and of itself should already have been reason enough to abolish IR35, but some idiotic, bureaucratic mangler (with excuses for the redundant tautology) decided otherwise.
