Cast your minds back to June 2004. P Diddy helped Mario Winans top the UK charts with I Don’t Wanna Know.
OK, you might not remember that, but, at the time, Accountancy Age ran a story suggesting Ernst & Young was on the cusp of re-entering the consulting market. Nick Land denied this, of course, but the Age wryly pointed out that the situation was quite murky. For example, PwC, which had quit the market, was still a member of the Management Consultancies Association.
...hhhhhuuuuummm, i think actions have spoken much louder than words here... well done TS on the slight sense of cynicism and not believing everything you are told
btw, diddy's over - it's all about timbaland now!

Don't know if Timbaland understands the (very) subtle difference between consulting and advisory services - unlike the diddy.
When TS says diddy, one means p diddy, not Ken Dodd. Dodd of course is more au fait with tax matters...

as Doddy and Diddy would no doubtedly agree: "mo' money, mo' problems"
i think timbaland's more about blurring lines between being a producer and being an artist... much like the fuzzy distinction between consulting and advisory services!

Blimey, deep and clever! Good effort, Spex.
Let's just thank the stars Pharrell isn't involved in carrying out Sarbox audits, or else it would get a bit complex.
