Yesterday's article "From The Coal Face" has brought forth some very direct and unflattering comments from employees of HMRC about the "quality" of management in that fine organ of the state, and staff morale in general.
One rather good suggestion was that Gordon "Smiler" Brown should read this site and the comments made. However, until I actually see a pig flying past my office window, I will assume that is unlikely to occur.
There was one very good suggestion that does, I think, have legs:
"My advice to all HMRC colleagues is to download from Intranet the grievance stencil (opens in Word) complete, sign and fire them into management. Don't pull your punches chaps and chapettes...the more grievances you raise the more the powers-that-be will get the message that things will have to change.
If I were a manager receiving a daily deluge of grievances from my staff it would certainly force my hand."
Use the system to defeat the system!
Plus, anonymously, air your grievances here in order to ensure that HMRC management is publicly humiliated into taking positive action.
Tax does have to be taxing.
