Before deciding to dedicate its life to scribbling accountancy gossip, TS whiled away the hours dreaming of parachuting from a Hercules plane in pitch darkness over enemy territory. Unfortunately, for some deep-seated psychological reason, we always landed in a cactus field.
So TS’s jaw dropped to the floor when Malcolm McKenzie, founding partner of RSM Robson Rhodes, told us he used to work for the SAS. We soon regained our senses, though, when he admitted that this was not the Special Air Service, which only hires crack army troops for secret missions, but rather Ernst & Young’s late 1990s strategic advisory services division.
TS wonders just how many times McKenzie has used this line at parties, in an attempt to make accountancy sound more exciting. Who dares wins, Malcolm.
