Missing HMRC CDs

Here’s a thought.

Did those lost CDs with details of 25 million people ever really exist? It’s now reported that the delivery company TNT denies any knowledge of them.

Plausible scenario: someone was asked to produce the data, but couldn’t or didn’t, perhaps for reasons outside their control like not having access to it. Under pressure, and expecting it soon to be sorted, someone told a harmless little white lie (as it seemed to them at the time) about it being in the post. Things then escalated from there.

Any Dilbert reader should have no trouble filling in details.
