When is a resignation not a resignation?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just heard on the radio that the Boss of HMRC, Paul Gray, who resigned over the missing discs with 25 million details, is in fact now working in the Cabinet Office. Salary £200K +. You couldn't make it up.

    I heard that, apparantly he's still getting paid from his old job till the end of the month, so is effectivley working for free at the minute.

    The big question will be if he's retained in January.
  3. Why doesn't this surprise me , ?????
  4. So in effect he has been promoted out of the job he cocked up. Has this government no shame at all. This was but a fake resignation.
  5. Resigned from his HMRC job, not from the Civil service.
    Yes Minister repeats anyone?
  6. It's interesting that a senior civil servant carries the can for Ministerial policy re failed systems and gets a £40K pay increase (if the Daily Semaphore is to be believed). It would be interesting to know if the junior civil servant cum scapegoat has received similar favourable treatment?
