*Yet Another Government IT Foul Up:

It's worth checking your National Insurance (NI) contributions for 2004/5 if you're planning to retire soon, as it seems that HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) has managed to lose 30 million individual's records. Apparently 98% of those records are now back up to date but that's still 600,000 of us with wonky NI records. Would the NIR be any better? It's hard to imagine that it would be, unless HMRC aren't taking NI records seriously...
