Let’s Put Dave The Taxman On The Dole

Who is this pompous, conceited, arrogant, Boris Johnson lookalike?

He’s Dave Hartnett, Permanent Secretary at Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. He’s refusing to apologise for getting tax deductions wrong for six million British taxpayers.

Just who the hell does he think he is?   We’re back to Sir Humphrey and lazy, fatcat incompetence and corruption again.  You’d think the civil service would have managed to drag itself entirely out of the 19th century by now wouldn’t you?  Not this prize plonker.  Maybe because his overgrown schoolboy, pudding basin haircut is just as messy as Boris’ he thinks he’ll endear himself to the British public?  Hogwash.  He’s the very opposite of Boris.  He represents everything that’s bad about Britain – self-satisfied, smug, deluded, living in the past.

I say let’s get him sacked.  Let’s create the biggest outcry against a useless civil sevant that the country has ever seen.  Let’s lose Mr Hartnett his job.  Let’s put him in his place – in the queue at the Jobcentre.  Then we’ll see who’s a cocky, scruffy, little git won’t we?

  1. Ha, thought you might pick up on this. Was going to rant about this earlier on MH – (won’t bother now that I’ve read your post) -but Tesco and 4 hungry dogs took precedence.

    The arrogance of Hartnett almost leaves me speechless. If such a colossal cockup was not down to human error or attributable to a new computer system, as he claims, then how the hell did it happen ? I think the very least one can expect – if no apology is to be given – is some kind of explanation of how this situation arose and an assurance that appropriate steps have been taken to prevent such a thing happening again?

    • You’re so reasonable Duncan. Why don’t you hold him down and I’ll kick him?

      • You kick one side, and I’ll kick the other.

        The rest of the country can form an orderly queue.

        What a twat!
