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 Â£200K +. You couldn't make it up.
It's interesting that a senior civil servant carries the can for Ministerial policy re failed systems and gets a Â£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?
