Nick Lodge Joins the Bank of England



Nick Lodge, Director General of HMRC’s Strategy Group, has taken up a new position with the Bank of England.

He was first appointed to HMRC’s Executive Committee in 2012 as Director General for Benefits and Credits, and was formally appointed an HMRC Commissioner in the same year. He’s since led Transformation before taking up the new Strategy Group leadership.

HMRC Chief Executive, Jon Thompson, said:
Nick has given a huge amount to this department, leading major change and operational programmes, and providing strong leadership within the Executive Committee and Board. I wish Nick well in his new opportunity and for the future.
Nick Lodge said:
I’m excited to be joining the Bank of England, leading a major programme at the heart of the UK’s financial infrastructure. It’s a great role that I’m really looking forward to and that brings me back to banking, where I began my career.
I’ve loved my time at HMRC. I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with great people, as part of some brilliant teams and in a wide range of different areas. I have every confidence HMRC will continue to deliver.
Interim arrangements for filling Nick’s current role will be announced shortly.

Lodge's HMRC directorate, covering general benefits and credits was assimilated into three other groups in 2016, I asked at the time:
"Where does Lodge end up, or does HMRC hope he falls on his sword?"

Troup Knighted After Supplying Confidential Tax Information


Edward Troup who signed an agreement to provide confidential tax information to the compilers of the honours list was knighted several months later after supplying that information.

How ironic!

I thought that tax information held by HMRC was meant to be confidential???

Lead By Example, Or Shut The Fuck Up Welby!


Last week the Archbishop of Canterbury bleated from his "pulpit" that it was in his opinion disgraceful that certain companies such as Amazon avoided tax, and that people would be happier if they paid more tax.

I noted at the time that he was a hypocritical idiot and that he should "lead by example and request that the tax exemptions that the £8BN business known as the Church of England currently enjoys be lifted, so that the church and its ministers etc pay tax!"

Following on from that outburst about Amazon et al, it has emerged that the business enterprise aka the Church of England intends to remain a stakeholder in Amazon and profit from its tax avoidance.

To repeat what I said last week, the Archbishop of Canterbury is a hypocritical idiot.

Lead by example, or shut the fuck up Welby!

Iain Dale Slams Conservative's 'Retrospective Tax'




"How can you justify a tax for hard working people that goes back 20 years?"

Stride replied:
"Because, if some time ago, you entered into one of these disguised remuneration schemes, where you're basically avoiding tax, there is no reason why we shouldn't collect that money."

Iain countered:
"But these are people who are not accountants. These are just normal hard working people. Change the system!"

Does Stride not know that avoidance is legal??

"It sounds outrageous. I can't believe that you want to penalise 100,000 working people and not people who are rich."
