HM Revenue and Customs - More of your information given away to fraudsters ?

The government are to make a statement at 3.30 pm about Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, with press speculation hinting it might be that HMRC have given away lots of personal information about you to persons unknown.

The head of HMRC, Paul Gray, has also quit in advance of the statement.

BBC Watchdog did a piece about this last night and not one government spokesman could be bothered to turn up to the programme to explain how this happens on such a regular basis.

The point was made last night that we have no choice about who collects our tax, despite them calling us customers. If a company acted like them we'd put our business with someone else.

Update: It appears the records of 25 million people have been lost when a courier lost CD's with this information on them. Shocking.
