HMRC website either hacked by Russia or just really shit

THE government’s website for tax and benefits has either been hacked by Russia or is just a piece of shit.

Millions of Britons reported that the government website for filing tax returns and claiming Child Benefit seemed to have been taken over by someone who was trying to crush their morale.

Self-employed decorator Nikki Hollis said: “I believe KGB hackers have taken down the proper HMRC site and replaced it with something designed on the Russian equivalent of a ZX81.

“It took me two days to even login because I didn’t have all 20 necessary passwords and it wouldn’t email them to me. At one point I considered taking my own life.”

Builder Roy Hobbs said: “Putin must have gotten to the tax website because he’s hidden all the useful information, and replaced it with self-contradictory nonsense.

“The Russians know that we’ll be left with no choice but to phone the tax people, which takes about nine hours at a time and induces a deep sense of paranoia.

“Last time I was on hold with them I could definitely hear Putin sniggering in the background.”
