Brown Rewrites History

Brown Rewrites History
Gordon Brown, architect of HMRC, apparently is not averse to employing the "Orwellian" strategy (as espoused in "1984") of re writing history to suit his own ends.

The difference between the Brown's method, and that detailed in "1984" is that Orwell assumed that a reasonable period of time would elapse between an event happening and the state adjusting history. Brown wades in within minutes of an event and rewrites it, especially if that event concerns his beloved HMRC.

When HRMC's acting head David Hartnett revealed last week that there had already been seven significant data losses at HMRC, he was asked directly if it indicated systemic failure at HMRC.

Hartnett said:

"I think ... it may well do."

That is a matter of public record.

However, Gordon Brown was asked about it a few hours later and flatly denied that Hartnett had ever made the comment.


"I don't accept that that is what the chairman (Hartnett)...said..."

Rumour has it that Brown will soon be saying that the HMRC did not lose the personal data of 25 million people.

With people like this running the country we are well and truly fucked! is brought to you by "The Living Brand"
