What a surprise....NOT. Well the government has been pocketing billions in contracts for rubbish PPE and other gimmicks including the £13.6 billion Track and Trace system that never works properly. So why not let the fraudsters take their share too? It is not right that only the government can steal our hard earned taxes, let the commoners participate too. Keep Calm and Carry On, it is only YOUR money that they are stealing daily.

LOL another day, another fraud perpetrated by a big name in the Auditing and Accounting profession. When will we plebs realise that the stringent rules and ethics only apply to us. We struggle to provide a decent and honest service to clients who regard us as nothing more than pen pushers and resent every penny they pay us. When will we open our eyes and realise that the rich NEVER have to follow any rules or regulations and they get away with it too each and every time, because our governing bodies always protect the rich and bend rules for them.
Do you think the KPMG partner who lied will lose his qualifications? OFCOURSE NOT.
Do you think KPMG will be shut down after this scandal? OFCOURSE NOT.
They will be fined as usual so that the governing body can pretend how strict they are as they enjoy the windfall from this ill gotten gain. Thieves benefiting from the misfortune of other thieves who were stupid enough to get caught.
If you want my advice, stop paying your annual membership fees and quit the profession. They will ask for your certificate back but there are lots of part time and contract roles for people who are good at accounts and work for a reasonable price. Those days when Accountancy was a respectable profession are long gone. It's just a dog eat dog world now.

Sounds like the results of a COVID vaccine to me.

So Lex Greensill is an entirely honest and trustworthy man who ran his company in an exemplary fashion but was led astray by accountants? And the directors of Carillion were selfless people who practically ran the business as a charity until they were forced into insolvency by accountants? And as for Philip Green.. he only received a pittance from Arcadia.
You missed the point, they were all crooks assisted by even more crooked accountants. Why do you try to divert attention from the obvious?

Carillion, Mount Anvil, Greensill the list goes on and on. When will our accountancy, regulatory bodies admit that our profession is full of "shysters" with no ETHICS and is subject to wide spread fraud and corruption? As we go to bed anxiously every night, trying out best to cope with the ever rising mountain of legislation, staying up to date with expensive CPD, trying out best to be honest and ethical with our piddly little clients (who begrudge every penny they pay us), the big players simply ignore the rules when they feel like - and they get away with it too.
One rule for the rich and powerful, another rule for the rest of us peasants. (Just like the Covid rules and regulations.) I think its called THE NEW NORMAL.

Yet another example of how ethics go out of the window for some people and larger audit firms when it comes to money.

LOL another day, another scandal, this time £200m missing and the dumb auditors never picked it up. When will the sheeple wake up and realize that ethics are just in textbooks and that high profile auditors are nothing more than just a famous name that unfortunate victims trust. It is all about money, if you pay enough you can get anything approved and certified by anyone. Now let the excuses begin to justify this one and then we can all forget it in a couple of days as usual - until the next scandal.

Relax you are just going through what hundreds of thousands of others are suffering at the moment. The majority of our recruitment agencies are cowboys but employers insist on hiring through them, maybe because a lot of them get kickbacks in one form or another. Recruitment agencies are vicious and literally sell human beings as slabs of meat to a prospective buyer. They have no ethics, they utilise many dodgy and unprofessional tactics in the recruitment process and they are famous for advertising non existent jobs just to collect CVs when times are hard (like now).
You will find lots of agencies that will charge you a hefty fee to "Produce a professional CV for you, that will increase your chances hundredfold of getting a job (but not guarantee it ofcourse). Once the money has changed hands your professional CV will go into the dustbin together with the others at the employers who think they are Gods.
All you can do is keep trying and if you keep failing then reduce your trying, after all, it is our corrupt government that has crashed our economy and destroyed millions of small businesses with this false pandemic that was no more than a dangerous flu. So do what millions of others will do, claim unemployment benefit and social security when times are hard. That is what the government has reduced millions of us to, so sit back and enjoy whatever little you can on benefits until the useless people in government decide to revamp the economy after a year or so and then you can get back into the job market on a much lower pay (just like the rest of us).
And you thought this was a western country right? Well think again, we have now become a third world country.

This is nothing new, when the government itself is wasting or "losing" money by the billions since the pandemic, it is only natural that others chip in for their share too:

Never ceases to amaze me how many ordinary citizens are "do gooders" trying to help the government or feel they need to police our tax systems when we have paid tax inspectors to do that. Instead of worrying about tax evasion from people paying in cash, maybe you should focus on how many millions have been "lost" in ordering PPE through dodgy companies that are linked to the conservatives. In the end they had to send an RAF fighter jet to pick up supplies from Turkey and they all turned out to be useless and were binned.
Maybe you want to focus on the £100 billion that is going to be wasted on Operation Moonshot?
How about the billions spent on the Track and Trace system and housing illegal immigrants in 4 and 5 star hotels thanks to Serco who keep on getting lucrative government contracts because of their connections?
Forget about that old saying: "If you focus on the pennies, the pounds will look after themselves". Focus on the pounds instead and you can save the taxpayers billions in a couple of hits. Let the tax inspectors worry about cash transactions. I have absolutely no problems with anyone getting away with tax evasion bearing in mind how much our government pillages our tax coffers daily on useless ventures.
