TS spots Indie kid at trial
TS took a trip down to Southwark Crown Court last week to see how the Independent Insurance trial was going. Apart from the court officials, TS was alone in Court No 2, except for a dapper gent in front of TS.
When TS broke the ice and asked what his connection was to the case, he claimed to have spare time and a general interest in the case. He was clearly a regular at the trial because the lead counsel for the defence strolled past and said: ‘You back here again? You must be a glutton for punishment.’ Then TS’ unidentified new chum pulled out a thick ICAEW document during a lull in proceedings and started to leaf through it, clearly not knowing he was in the presence of the accountancy world’s arch agitator.
