An Ernest mistake

We know that the drama down at the High Court – you know, that case involving Ernst &Young and £2bn, as far as TS can recall – is a serious matter. But whether or not those compiling the cause list (the full record of cases in court on any one day) had to describe it in the way they did, TS is unsure.

Having in a recent court case misspelt Smith & Williamson as Sith & Williamson (R2D2 always did sound like an accounting standard), the cause list is now showing Ernst &Young as Ernest &Young.

The misspelling raises an interesting question in TS’s mind. If E&Y loses, does it have to pay up?
