  1. Who is in charge of MTD this week?

    With their obsession with communications, HR, social mobility, and goodness knows what other PC nonsense they know nothing about but which they're pretending to care about, were it not for the vast majority of law abiding taxpayers and accountants their ineptitude would start to get exposed.

    Bunch of incompetents collecting huge sums from our tax money, but unfit to run a bath!

  2. The communications director Stephen Hardwick has just left HMRC.
    His Twitter statement makes interesting reading. 300 Staff!

    Company Name HM Revenue & Customs
    Dates Employed Sep 2011 – May 2017 Employment Duration 5 yrs 9 mos
    Location London, United Kingdom

    I advised the Executive Committee and Board on communications and reputation in a Department with 65,000 staff and annual revenues of £537 billion from 49 million individuals and 5.4 million businesses. I was a member of the Executive Committee, a broadcast spokesperson and represented HMRC at cross-government forums.

    I led 300 staff in media, social media, internal communications, marketing, design, stakeholder relations, corporate publications, sustainability, and HMRC’s Building our Future engagement programme. I managed a budget of up to £20 million a year and was HMRC’s environment champion."

    1. 'spose it all depends on yer understanding of;

    2. If they want a good "reputation" then I am certain any advisor would know that law breaking is bad...

  3. How many offices could you have kept open with £20 million?

    1. The elite look after the elite.

  4. If law breaking goes unchecked within HMRC, who could trust them?

  5. Shame his pointless teams didn't leave with him.
