HMRC are to be congratulated for their skills in finding new ways to waste our money.
The good people of HMRC have spent £1.5M, in a series of "brainstorming away days" for 450 of HMRC's "finest" brains, to create a slogan for HMRC.
Guess what earth shattering result they came up with?
Don't like that very much?
Worried that it may not be worth £1.5M?
Well try these for size, these are the rejected ideas:
-a "pink and fluffy" logo spelling out "Thank You" to those who paid their taxes
-a steel-grey "Elite Enforcement" warning tax evaders they would be "hunted down".
What have these people been smoking?
An HMRC spokesman said:
"If you improve the quality and leadership in the department it benefits everyone from people who claim tax credits to the Government."
I agree, unfortunately this is not an example of an improvement in quality or leadership.
Money well spent!
Tax does have to be taxing.
