Homer's Pension Pot Just Keeps Growing


In January this year I wrote about Homer's pension pot:
"As Lin Homer walks away with a £2.174million pension pot (lifetime allowances anyone?) we should not be too envious as, according to HMRC:

"Her pension is actuarially-reduced, because she is leaving before retirement age. She is receiving no severance compensation.”
It seems that, despite volatile market conditions, that pot has now grown to £2.4M.

In fact she has done rather well for herself, according to the Mail she is entitled to an index linked £125K per annum income. Oh, and by the way, she got a £20K bonus before leaving.

Rewarding failure really doesn't cover it does it?

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. Just seen this in media.

    So, the useless bitch walks off with a bonus worth more than my 'shaved' pension after 40 yrs of my service?
    Also, I thought all CS Pensions were limited to 40/80 which would be £95k, how the fuck does she end up with £125k, an increase of £30k p.a. which is more than the maximum salary of the vast majority of staff?
    The rotten stench of something vile reeks around this.
    Shame on you Homer, shame!

  2. She performed shockingly as CEO and seemed to have acquired a bad name with media & public; under her regime hmrc hounded small businesses while doing cosy deals with multinationals, allowed the bullying of staff and Homer never seemed to give a straight answer at PAC hearings, thus avoiding the accountability which surely should come as part of the job in a democracy. This kind of deal gives all the other decent and hard working public servants a bad name and stinks. Btw - does anyone what on earth the 'bonus' was for?

  3. Will Jon Thompson do any better - he replaced Homer and his first performance at the PAC hardly inspired any confidence of his leadership abilities.

  5. The bonus was for turning up -Private eye revealed a few years back 220 senior employees getting on average 7 k bonuses while the grunts got a pay freeze and their pensions increased ! This in an organisation stuffed with overpaid non entities who dont collect a penny in tax -the internal website had a recent comment from a prat in HR stating she was proud to tell people she collected money for schools and hospitals -you couldnt make it up ..

    1. I think they do make it up. All of it. Just how much money do HR bring in from taxpayers? Yes, fuck all, spending all their time attending pointless, backslapping meetings. Ask them to sort out an issue and see that you get nowhere.

  6. Homer didn't collect a penny for any public services - that result was, and is, all down to the taxpaying public and assisted by hard working frontline staff. She presided over unproductive working practices and utter chaos. Under her watch she turned a blind eye to the brutal bullying culture - that's her legacy, but I guess she doesn't mention that to the chattering classes. As for the above mention of recent internal website from 'HR' that sounds very much like political PR propaganda and spin - not appropriate behaviour from the civil service.

    1. The culture of bullying existed prior to Broon's Frankenstein creation, but it was less tolerated and the unions and staff sections were stronger. Under the new system staff comnplaints began to be reviewed and rules and appealed within silos, with obvious consequences. Civil and criminal law allegations were not even referred to internal audit or professional standards, when some of them were so serious they should have been referred to the IPCC.
      It is no wonder that staff have been so traumatised when they see the whole edifice is stacked against them, from workface to Parliament, covered up more effectively than a cloaked Klingon Battlecruiser!
      Live long and prosper, not!

    2. You're spot on with this - and yes bullying did always go on before the 2005 inception of hmrc. The difference was the union and union reps were prepared to stand up for what was right against what was wrong in cases of bullying. Nowadays the union are totally ineffective, preferring instead to campaign for marginal left wing issues rather than individual's employment rights. Not sure what work the HR people do but they would be more aptly called the Cover-up Department.

  7. HR and even worse PR. Hundreds of non productive corporate communicators. Thousands of middle managers who cling like leaches on the backs of the minority who try desparately to meet targets and satisfy "quality" standards which are no more than routine processing functions.
