Britain now has more people working for themselves than ever before. As of the last quarter of 2013 some 4.3 million of us earn our own crust and are officially self-employed.

There's good and bad sides to it. Thanks Ray.

Rather pointless asking if it's good or bad. If you can't get a job, try and create your own. We all have to survive the best we can.

I don't know if it will prove to be good or bad. I do think the trend to be self-employed is a sign of desperation on the part of people seeking employment.
