Rewarding Failure - The Gray Scale II
As HMRC continues to butcher its headcount, in the drive to "improve" efficiency and reduce costs, it must be heartening to those who have been/are about to be fired to know that Paul Gray, the ex Chairman of HMRC who was responsible for losing 25 million data records, has found a new job.
BTW, Gray left HMRC with a £2.3M pension and a payoff of £400K.
Anyhoo he is now working for Praesta, helping their executives "develop their potential".
Now, as we know, Gray was initially farmed out to the Cabinet Orifice (senior members of HMRC are never left out in the cold, that simply wouldn't be very nice would it?).
Having left the Cabinet Orifice, he seemingly was still needing to earn a few pennies to keep the wolves from the door.
Luckily Praesta offered him a job.
Oh, one thing that I should mention, Praesta has £650K worth of contracts with the Government.
It warms the cockles of my heart to see HMRC and the government look after its ex employees so well. I assume that the 25,000 staff who have been/will be fired will also be treated as well?
HMRC: rewarding failure, punishing enterprise!
Tax does have to be taxing.
