107 letter from the Revenue (part 2)

About a month ago I blogged about an unfortunate electrician who received 107 letters in separate envelopes on the same day all containing penalty notices.

It’s good to report that the people at HM Revenue and Customs have now said that they were sorry and that the penalties should never have been issued.

But the system is the system, so recently the postman staggered up to his door with another 107 letters on the same day – this time each one contained a separate notice cancelling the original penalty!

He felt he had to explain to his postman what was going on.

Otherwise people would talk.

(That happens in villages round here where the postman is a rich source of community gossip information)
