I’m self employed. It might appear to a great many people that I’m a ‘fat cat’ because officially I’m a company director and I have an employee (me) but the fact of the matter is that I’m no different from countless thousands of others in this country who make their living on their wits, ability and the goodwill of those who hire us.
If nobody hires me to do a job, I don’t get paid. Therefore, I am on a zero hours contract. Your local window cleaner is in a similar situation, as is the bloke who fixed my roof last time it leaked.
I’m pleased that the Millibrain has declared that my arrangement with myself is to be made illegal. I will have no more sleepless nights, since I’ll be confident that the welfare state will reward my future fecklessness simultaneously with suitable benefits for me and appropriate sanctions against me.
Please recall my earlier comments about not voting for this idiot.
