Auditor shocked by Home Office's slipshod accounts

THE Home Office has lost control of its finances and its accounts are in a mess, according to a report published by the public spending watchdog. The National Audit Office is so alarmed at what it has uncovered that it has refused to give its approval to the department’s flawed financial records.

The Permanent Secretary at the time the trouble developed was Sir John Gieve. He left the Home Office in December to join the Bank of England as Deputy Governor in charge of financial stability.

It is the first time in modern history that the nation’s Auditor General has delivered such an indictment on the financial records of a key government department.

Sir John Bourn uncovered numerous errors and inconsistencies in the accounts, with officials unable to reconcile cash going in and out of the department with its bank statements. At one point Home Office officials wanted to write off a £3 million discrepancy in the figures.

When Sir John recently commented that his grasp of economics was a little rusty he wasn't lying! Clearly a suitable replacement for the fearsome Sir Andrew Large.

Dear god, we're stuffed!

He is a suitable replacement, one that will do as Gordon asks!
