Don’t mention the Warburton

Basil_warburtonStephen Williams, the MP profiled on pages 14-15 in this week’s issue, told TS that he used to work for mid-tier firm Grant Thornton in Cheltenham. What you may not realise is that this is also the domain of TS favourite Mike Warburton.

‘Mike is probably the nicest person I ever worked for. The most motivational, but also frustrating, Basil Fawlty type. He was good to work for,’ Williams says.

Basil Fawlty? TS can just about see the likeness but who does that make Williams? Manuel? And who on earth takes the enviable role as Sybil?

Just try not to mention Arctic Systems to Mike. We did once, but we think we got away with it.
