Article: UK is now the self-employment capital of western Europe, says IPPR report

It strikes me as fairly obvious that the reason we have so much self employment is that workers are filling the gaps where the labour market has failed them. This is not a good sign as you can be fairly sure many of these people are not on good money. I wonder what the statistics are like for Working Tax Credit claims?
