English Heritage jobs at risk


As if anyone will be surprised to learn that the decision to split EH in two and stop government funding of the larger part without proper impact assessment would probably lead to job losses.

Wonder if any of the "key personnel" facing the chop will be offered post-retirement self-employed status to keep the wheels on the bus? It's happened to many other civil service sector personnel. Posted by tomatoman

Yeah senior staff who are re-employed as "consultants" at arm's length will be able to draw their "consultancy fees" through offshore arrangements which can be legally drawn up, avoiding UK income tax and by drawing their "fees" as a "long-term loan" (never to be actually repaid) the money will never be viewed as "income" or "earnings".
Thus UK "Heritage Industry" Income is syphoned out of the country with no tax paid. No benefit to "English Heritage" beyond what the arm's length consultants bring us with their collective genius.

It is like magic.
