Loyal readers will doubtless recall the "resignation" (or was it really sacking?) of Bernadette Kenny (Director General of Personal Tax) that was featured on this site in early November.
Well now, it seems that this story hasn't quite ended yet.
The FT reports that, "oddly enough", Kenny will not be leaving her post empty handed (even though she allegedly "resigned" of her own free will).
Kenny will, as from February 2011, start to draw down her HMRC £50K per annum pension (six years earlier than she would have normally been entitled to - worth an extra £300K to her).
My goodness, what a generous and decent employer HMRC is...if, that is, you are in the upper echelons of HMRC and know where the bodies are buried!
Tax does have to be taxing.
