View Full Version : Revenue boss faces investigation over EDS deal

26th April 2006, 18:18

David Varney, head of HM Revenue & Customs, is expected to be questioned today by the Treasury Select Committee over allegations of a secret deal between his department and US IT contractor, EDS.

Michael Fallon, Tory MP and a member of the parliamentary committee, called for the inquiry after details emerged of a settlement, which will enable the Revenue to claw back about £30m of legal compensation owed to it, only if EDS wins new public sector contracts.

The Times reported that only some of the £71m out-of-court settlement over the tax credits system debacle is guaranteed with the rest to be paid back in the form of a percentage of the work of future government contracts won by EDS both from Revenue & Customs and other departments.

Fallon said the deal undermined the 'fair' process for handing out lucrative government contracts.

The Revenue insisted its settlement with EDS would not influence future procurement processes.

The NAO is believed to be considering investigating the matter.

Makes no difference.

No one will be sacked, no one will resign and the drones will vote the shower back in next time.

Can we talk about Janeys bum now please?

When Mrs Vet was alive (she passed away 2 year ago now), she had a lovely bum.

It was a lovely as when I first set eyes on it when I was 21, and she 18, as it was when I was 63 and she 60.

That old bum of hers served her well, and throughout our married life, it was like a special friend...it was there every night in bed, and always got a goodnight squeeze. During the day, it would be gently touched, as a sign of affection. Love the woman...love the bum.

Now both are gone, and I see all these skimpy young bums all over the place, many tanned and pert, with mischevious tattoos poking out of threadbare smalls, and I can't help but long to squeeze the best bum in the world, the only one that really mattered, which is no longer here.
