Losing cds with 25 million people's personal dat on them is a scandal of stupidly large proportions. It suggests a cavalier and systemic failure of basic security common sense at Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs in relation to something as valuable as information.
However losing £80,000 worth of cocaine and fake passport from an HMRC store is just taking it a step too far. The store was at Coventry airport and they have no idea if they've been lost or stolen. Let's pause for a moment. What's the chances that a huge brick of charley with a street value that is even higher once it's been cut up has just been mislaid?
HMRC is fast becoming like an episode of the Keystone Cops.
