MOD Accounts Qualified Six Years Running

As a wee epilogue to yesterday's announcement about the appointment of Jon Thompson (currently the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Defence) as CEO of HMRC and Accounting Officer, I draw your attention to the following extract from the REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER AND AUDITOR GENERAL ON THE 2014-15 ACCOUNTS OF THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE:
"I have qualified my opinion for a sixth year because the Department is likely to have omitted a material value of leased assets and associated liabilities from its Statement of Financial Position. 

I cannot quantify the impact of these omissions on the accounts with certainty because, as a result of its accounting policies, the Department has not maintained the records, or obtained the information required to do so...

Sir Amyas C E Morse 
Comptroller and Auditor General 
13 July 2015"
Just saying...

Hat tip to Kevin Reed for pointing this out to me.

Tax does have to be taxing.

    The Ministry of Disasters, usually of the procurement kind but frequently in terms of disposal credibility, e.g. Nimrod AWACS (these were originally De Haviland Comets!), Harrier VTOL, Type 45 destroyer propulsion systems, useless computer system

    Should be an easy transition from one useless public waster of tax payers(customers)money to another.
