Rev has an ogre of a task ahead

Shrek

TS has a lot of time for Steve Lamey, the CIO at Revenue & Customs. Without putting too fine a point on it, he faces a massive task bringing the two departments’ IT systems together, and he has made it clear that first he has to get them running properly in the first place.

But at least he’s trying to do it with a sense of humour. At a bigwig conference this morning in Victoria, Lamey compared himself to cartoon ogre and movie star Shrek, even showing a slide of the green plug-eared fella to demonstrate. Apparently, this is because he is well meaning, and has nothing to do with his appearance. Or so we believe.
