Meanwhile, Paul Gray, the £190,000-a-year chairman of HM Customs &
Revenue who resigned yesterday, is set to remain on full salary pending a deal
to let him retire on a full pension. Mr Gray, who was praised for quitting "as a
matter of honour", will not lose a penny by falling on his sword.
So there you have it. Honour among thieves, eh?
