Mine comes from my days in consulting with an idiot manager, who would arrange for me to be on client site and forget to tell me.

I would arrive into the office and he would ask "Why are you not in ... Oh how soon can you get to ..."

Mine is to always remind folk here of this vile piece of shit:

As Paymaster General, Dawn Primarolo was responsible for the administration of the Tax Credits system, intended to provide working families with financial support. However, the administration of this system has received significant criticism, including allegations that some families have been left less well off as a result.[9] In 2003, a Treasury select committee member accused her of "losing control of [her] department"[10] after it became known that Inland Revenue buildings under Primarolo's purview had been sold to tax-haven companies.[10] This came shortly after she had "insisted ... the Child tax credit scheme was a 'success'", despite Inland Revenue staff walking out in protest against the pressure they were being placed under.[10][11] She was also responsible for introducing the controversial[why?] IR35 tax rules.[citation needed] Primarolo was also the longest serving Paymaster General in the office's 200-year history.[citation needed] Primarolo was named Chair of the Code of Conduct Group upon its establishment by ECOFIN in March 1998.[12]

And why voting Labour is for *****....:winker:
