Senior officials now in frame for HMRC data fiasco


Reap what you sow.......

The Government is getting what it deserved - a level of service commensurate with the resources allocated. An analogy with monkeys and peanuts springs to mind. I used to be a civil servant, latterly in the old C&E and am well aware of the cuts in staff and the direct and indirect effects.

The joke is that senior management always meet the targets for cutting staff and at the same time produce an "Assurance" that the Revenue is being protected and that all is well. To do anything else would put a bonus at risk. The remaining staff have to carry the can for the top level incompetence.
