The Tweedie world of accounting

Last week TS informed the accounting world of Sir David Tweedie’s ‘efficient’ use of speech material during conferences. It led one accountant to regale TS about another event that Sir David was speaking at.

Apparently, the feisty Scots leader of the IASB was being his usual steely and to-the-point self, when another attendee was heard to say: ‘I always thought that Tweedie was something rough and hairy from north of the border’. Comparing Tweedie with the Scots cloth is a bit obvious. If his name was Sir Harris Tweedie, then it might be funny. Perhaps it’s because Sir Dave spins a good yarn.
