Re: Rigged definition of an employee

The courts apply the law as drafted and passed. They don’t make it up. If the legislation is poor that’s the fault of the Government who proposed it and the MP’s who passed it. Why the Lord’s is a great revision chamber, but much of what they recommend gets ignored by agenda’s to pursue and poor law ends up being passed.

See Prorogation and Lady Hale as an example of appropriate good application. No difference for HMRC cases.
