Hartnett of the Revenue

Mr Hartnett, the permanent secretary for tax at HM Revenue & Customs, was widely condemned over the weekend for his initial refusal to apologise for sending out demands to more than a million consumers that they need to pay extra tax.

"I'm not sure a need to apologise," he said in a Radio 4 interview on Saturday. "We didn't get it wrong."

Mr Hartnett later issued an apology for the error caused by HM Revenue and Customs.

This is another example of the arrogance of those who who are meant to serve the public but in fact think themselves to be the untouchable rulers of the country. People who treat the ordinary men and women of this country with contempt. They have to be weeded out and exposed as those who are creating the class divide and fuelling the increased tensions between the haves and have nots.
I do not consider myself a socialist but for any country or community to work requires that the governing and the governed understand that the relationship can only be maintained with mutual respect. Hartnett is a man who has clearly lost the plot and should go.
