Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before

As a high flyer in the fast, glamorous world of accountancy journalism, TS is not afraid of reheating a story to save a bit of labour and free up some time for a session in the pub.

After listening to Sir David Tweedie’s latest address, it would appear that TS is in good company.

Delivering a speech at the London Business School, the IASB chairman said: ‘Those of you who have read the standard on financial instruments (IAS39) and understood it have not read it properly.’

Unfortunately, this is exactly the same gag he used to entertain punters at last November’s Accountancy Age Awards.

Content synergy, Sir David, content synergy.
