Straightforwardly angry

Posted on

Some things are simply designed to induce anger. The Guardian's report this morning that H M Revenue & Customs are seeking to sack Osita Mba, the lawyer who whistle blew on the Goldman Sachs deal that has torn the credibility of Dave Hartnett and the senior management of our tax authority apart is one such thing.

Osita Mba has stood up for the rule of law, for accountability, for consistency, for competence and for the duty of the civil service.

Parliament has applauded his courage in doing so.

And HMRC want to sack him.

The wrong man's under threat.
