The stocks are too good for them

HSBC has admitted the loss of a CD containing 370,000 customers’ details that were destined for a reinsurer. Apparently the normal network connection was unavailable, so a password-protected CD was burned and bunged in normal Royal Mail post. Of course it never arrived. Sound familiar? What sort of maniac could possibly authorise such an action in light of the publicity around HMRC? Are they dead? Or in a coma? Or have they travelled back in time?

A few days in the stocks for whoever authorised this sounds like an appropriate punishment.

“…typically, a person condemned to the stocks was subjected to a variety of abuses, ranging from having refuse thrown at them, paddling, and tickling, whipping and roasting of the unprotected, extremely sensitive bare feet…”
