Labours idiot tax plan will kill Information technology leaders

Labour plans to tax Information technology consultants who move round from one company to another to perform highly complex business IT functions as full time employees.

This is ridiculous.

Having been a consultant in the City selling my skills and taking the RISKS by doing so I worked hard and expected to be paid well. Now Blair will drive these specialists to the United states and Europe where draconian, anticompetitive tax measures are seen as a destructive influence on business.

Blair has NO hope at all of producing ANY high tech lead as he is breaching European law with his proposed spy on the public IT laws and now he will force the cream of the computer industry away. Blair is a techno luddite. What other PM would welcome monopolistic, technically backward microsoft with open arms, tax and pry into business?
