Rearranging The Deckchairs on The Titanic

Rearranging The Deckchairs on The Titanic
I am advised that HMRC is "celebrating Gay Lesbian and transgender month" with various events.

What has this got to do with improving the efficiency and cost effectiveness of tax collection?

I am also advised that, according to the article on the HMRC Intranet, the HMRC Gay Lesbian and Transgender co-ordinator does not want to be identified.

Doesn't that kind of negate his/her ability to co-ordinate the events?

Is this an effective use of taxpayers' money?

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. It would maybe be helpful if instead of spending time doing this sort of CRAP they could actually ANSWER THE BLOODY PHONES!
    I have spent mpst of today trying to undo HMRC mistakes and when I cal am told there is no answer and would I like to call back tomorrow? No I bloody wouldn't!!
    But there is no alternative so cal back tomorow it is............

  2. I work for the bastards and have done for 24 years. I sit at my desk all day trying to bring in the money from various chisellers and it does not exactly brighten my day when I learn that it's Lesbian Gay and God Knows What Month.
